Vikings injury report: Day off for Peterson

By Ben Goessling

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings held running back Adrian Peterson out of practice on Wednesday, and it wouldn't be surprising if they pulled Peterson out of a number of practices for the rest of the season, as he plays through a groin injury. But Peterson, who carried 32 times in Sunday's tie against the Green Bay Packers, figures to play against the Chicago Bears.

Coach Leslie Frazier talked this week about the possibility of giving Toby Gerhart more carries in the next few games, after Gerhart ran for 91 yards on eight carries against the Packers. The Vikings face the league's worst rushing defense this weekend, and there could be opportunities for both backs against the Bears.
