Adrian Peterson suffered a mild ankle sprain in Week 5. We break down the fantasy implications.

Head coach Leslie Frazier said on Monday that Adrian Peterson has a mild ankle sprain. Peterson does not expect to miss any playing time, and should be fine going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson injured his ankle early on in the first quarter of Sunday's matchup with the Titans. Fortunately for his owners he was able to play through the pain, tallying up 88 yards on 17 carries. The Vikings jumped out to a lead early and never looked back, so it wasn't imperative for Peterson to carry the ball constantly throughout the afternoon. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks this week, you should expect him to be good to go in Week 6 against the Redskins.
