Adrian Peterson injury: Vikings RB probable, should play for fantasy owners

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as probable on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially probable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Peterson is dealing with a groin injury he apparently sustained in Wednesday's practice. Rather, Peterson was fine on Wednesday, but was absent from practice on Thursday.

Most figured that Peterson missed due to a rest day, but he was absent from Friday's session as well and the team announced the groin injury. It's unclear if Peterson will be available for the team's game, but there seems to a decided lack of urgency out of the Minnesota camp, so who knows at this point?

Seattle might just be the best team in the NFL depending on your opinion of the Kansas City Chiefs. But their run defense isn't as good as their secondary, which is the best in the league for sure.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson will probably play unless the injury is more severe than we're led to believe. Fantasy owners should start him at this point, but keep an eye on the headlines as the inactive deadline approaches. He should be all systems go, but at this point the injury injury is a mystery.
