A bloody Adrian Peterson

CLEVELAND -- Minnesota tailback Adrian Peterson just scored his second touchdown of the game, and it looks like he’s playing with a pretty deep cut on his left elbow.

The cut was gushing blood after Peterson’s 1-yard touchdown gave the Vikings a 17-13 lead early in the third quarter. It probably also explains why he left the field two minutes before halftime.

It’s been a mixed bag if you have Peterson on your fantasy team. He’s got two touchdowns but only 40 yards on 14 carries at this point.
