Vikings RB Adrian Peterson avoided major injury

The Minnesota Vikings running back said on Monday that a MRI revealed no ligament damage and ruled out the possibility of a Lisfranc injury, which would have kept Peterson out six to eight weeks and ended his season.

X-rays also showed no broken bones in his foot, and while a CT scan will show the injury in more detail, Peterson said “we’re just going through the protocol,” and added he expects to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Coach Leslie Frazier was more cautious and said he would send the x rays to a foot specialist.

Peterson’s foot was in a walking boot on Monday, and while the running back was planning to play, Frazier wasn’t ready to rule out the possibility of sitting Peterson for the final three games of the season — especially now that the Vikings have been eliminated from the playoffs.
