Peterson: Back Injury “Not a Big Deal”

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 24, 2009 – 4:03 pm

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson appeared on Wednesday’s injury report as a limited participant with a “back” listed under the injury column. That development likely caused some uneasiness for Vikings fans as their team prepares to open the home portion of the schedule with a game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

But, Peterson said during his press conference on Thursday that his back injury was “not a big deal.” Those are encouraging words for the Vikings.

Following practice on Thursday, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress did not provide an update on Peterson’s status, or the status of any other players on Wednesday’s injury report, saying an update will come when the team’s daily injury report is released this afternoon.

Today’s injury report has not been filed but we’ll let you know as soon as that happens. The report will be released later than usual each day because the 49ers are obviously practicing on the west coast and won’t wrap up until late afternoon CT.
