Adrian Peterson foot injury might also hurt the Minnesota Vikings in the long-run as the running back suffered a foot sprain playing against the Baltimore Ravens.
Peterson is set to have an MRI for his foot injury as the star running back told doctors he was experiencing pains in his mid-foot area. While the injury may be serious, it is doubtful that it will end the football player’s season as Peterson told reporters,
“Not at all. You should’ve seen me in here, trying to get back out there. I kept my pads on throughout most of the third quarter, until I finally was like, ‘I’m not going to be able to go.’ I’m just going to get the MRI done tomorrow, see what it says, and try to push to be ready to play.”
Even though the Adrian Peterson foot injury may be downplayed by the running back and team, the injury could be quite serious. Peterson was carted off to the locker room in the second quarter. Peterson stated:
“I was trying to get the first down. After that, I didn’t know what happened to the football. I was more worried about my ankle.”
While Peterson hopes to be ready to play for the Vikings next game, the running back seems to be prone to injury. It was unsure if the star would even play in Sunday’s game after he suffered a groin injury from the previous week.
