    Adrian Peterson Joins Antoine Winfield On Vikings' Injured List

    Whether you win or lose against the Ravens, they are physical enough that you suffer for a couple of weeks afterward.

    The Vikings got the win on Sunday, but they also got the bruises that come with it.

    The biggest problem for the Vikings is cornerback Antoine Winfield's foot injury. When Winfield left the game on Sunday the Ravens' pass offense suddenly became a world-beater as backup Karl Paymah quickly proved he's not really ready for a starting job. The Vikings are not ruling out Winfield playing on Sunday, but everyone else is.

    Now the news is out that Adrian Peterson was limited in practice on Wednesday with a sprained ankle. Unlike Winfield, it's highly likely that Peterson will play on Sunday, but an ankle sprain is not the news the Vikings want to hear as they get ready to face the Steelers. If Peterson is healthy, he's the perfect weapon to attack a Steelers' run defense that is trying to recover from the loss of defensive end Aaron Smith. But if Peterson is limited in any way, it makes Steelers' coordinator Dick LeBeau's job much easier.

    While the Vikings are limping, Pittsburgh (with the exception of Smith) is healthier than it has been in any game since the season opener.

    Peterson being on the injury list is nothing more then a technicality , you can be sure he'll be ready to go.

    If AP is dinged up they have a very good backup in chester taylor, who used to play for BALT., he's their pass catching back.

    He's pretty good so they don't lose alot to going to him.

    No matter how good Chester Taylor is, he is no AP....AP is going to play but if he wasn't, there would definitely be a drop off in their offensive production and they would have to change up their game plan

    I don't believe he will be 100% but, I believe he will play and I believe his 80% (or more) is better than most starters in the league 100%......

    However. our boys will put together a W in a close, hard fought game.

    I also want him to play. Not that I give a **** if their fans make excuses, more because he's the best back in the league right now and I want to see him play. Be held to 60 yards on 25 carries...but play!
