Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was held out of practice on Wednesday because of soreness in his left ankle. Peterson hurt the ankle in Week 5 but finished last Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins with 79 yards on 17 carries. He also had 50 yards receiving.
Peterson missed some practice time last week but was listed as probable on the injury report. Coach Leslie Frazier has not expressed serious concern about Peterson's hurt ankle.
Fantasy Impact: The ankle injury is not a major worry for fantasy owners, who are more puzzled by the fact that Peterson hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1. The yardage and carries continue to be there for Peterson and it figures to be a matter of time before he gets back into the end zone.
Fantasy owners this season continue to expect strong efforts from Peterson but the wait continues for the huge fantasy day. It's hard to tell when that will happen but this week against a tough Arizona defense is not the best bet. He's still a No. 1 fantasy option at running back.
