Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) was listed as a non-participant in Monday's practice estimations, reports Tom Pelissero. No actual practices were held, as the Vikings draw the Thursday Night game this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This news is just a formality.
Peterson has admitted that his ankle is still sore, but it hasn't slowed him down one bit. He ripped off 153 rushing yards on 23 carries against the Cardinals last Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Expect the Vikings to rest Peterson in the short week, but he should be ready to go on TNF. Peterson is playing like a man possessed, and could be even better once his ankle is back to 100%.
Fantasy owners should lock AD in as a RB1 this week. It's a juicy matchup against Tampa's poor defense.
