Adrian Peterson will miss his third straight game due to the ankle sprain he suffered on Nov. 20 against the Raiders. Head Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson made good progress this week, so hopefully that bodes well for his chances of getting back in the lineup next Sunday when the Vikings host the Saints at Mall of America Field. Toby Gerhart will again start in place of Peterson.
The good news is that Christian Ponder, who — like Peterson — was questionable on the injury report, will start today despite suffering a hip pointer last Sunday vs. Denver.
Here is the full list of today’s inactives for the Vikings:
RB Adrian Peterson, CB Chris Cook, LB Xavier Adibi, OL Brandon Fusco, OL DeMarcus Love, TE Allen Reisner, and DE D’Aundre Reed.
Lions inactives are as follows: RB Kevin Smith, DT Nick Fairly, CB Chris Houston, S Louis Delmas, DE Lawrence Jackson, QB Drew Stanton, and OL Leonard Davis.
