Vikings injury report: Peterson sits again

By Ben Goessling

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed his second consecutive day of practice, in what is becoming a weekly routine to limit wear and tear on last year's NFL MVP. But coach Leslie Frazier doesn't expect Peterson, who has carried 67 times in the last two games despite a strained groin, to be limited on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

"It just tells you how amazing he is," Frazier said. "Not only does he play, he plays extremely well. It's just incredible, when you think of what those injuries can do for any position, let alone a running back. He's a special guy. His body is definitely unique. He's different in a lot of ways."

Peterson still leads the league with 1,208 rushing yards, and he might have more if he were able to run at full speed. "I know this: Some of those 20-yard runs could be 40- or 60-yard runs. We've seen that," Frazier said. "He's working as hard as he can, but it's tough to get [to] 100 percent in two or three days [of practice]."
