Adrian Peterson will be limited in practice Tuesday for the Minnesota Vikings due to lingering soreness in his ankle, head coach Leslie Frazier told the Pioneer Press. The Vikings are on a short week as they are scheduled to go up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
Frazier indicated after Sunday's game that Peterson was not as sore as he was the week before. While the Vikings are being cautious, Peterson's role is not expected to be limited in any way against the Bucs.
Fantasy Impact: Peterson still managed to rumble for 153 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries last week, so don't expect his carries to drop against Buccaneers due to any kind of concern for his ankle. Peterson has had no problem playing through pain before.
The running back has played admirably this season. He has gone over 100 yards rushing twice, and has not had less than 60 yards rushing in any game this season. He hasn't found the end zone as often as fantasy owners would like--his touchdown Sunday was his first since the season opener--but Peterson is a solid RB1/RB2 in standard fantasy formats.
