Vikings | Peterson limited in practice Wednesday

Vikings | Peterson limited in practice Wednesday (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, with an injury he suffered in Week 2.

 
They could have just as easily called it a back injury...they were probably giving him some rest after carrying the team offense for two weeks.

 
I'm surprised this is the first we have heard of it. You could tell when he went off late in the game that his leg was injured somehow.

Agreed. Childress staying mum because he's looking to move ADP in a dynasty league?Seriously though, this should be much bigger news ...

:rant: At least was limted and not out. I was wondering too, because I didnt see him hunched over with something wrong on his leg at the end of the game.....hope this isnt bad.
 
From NFL.com:

Adrian Peterson, RB MINNews: The Vikings placed RB Adrian Peterson on Wednesday's practice report because of a hamstring injury. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Peterson had limited practice reps, but it was unclear how much practice he missed. The Vikings didn't comment on the issue.Analysis: Vikings head coach Brad Childress said after Sunday's loss to the Colts that Peterson was just fine after getting 33 touches (29 carries). Maybe he wasn't entirely telling the truth. Don't go making any drastic Fantasy moves at this time. The injury could be very minor and might not keep Peterson out Week 3. If anything happens, we will let you know. But for now, prepare to start Peterson in all Fantasy formats.

Adrian Peterson (hamstring) was limited in Vikings practice Wednesday.

Peterson took a late hit to his left hamstring in last week's game against the Colts, but it was in the first half and he continued to play, finishing with 180 total yards on 34 touches. He's probably a bit sore, so keep an eye on this situation. The Vikings host the Panthers in Week 3.

FWIW

 
Yeah, I saw that during the game. Peterson was limping slightly after that. Total cheap shot, but it wasn't the first, nor the last time that someone has/will go low on him. The Colts were doing it the whole game because you just can't tackle this guy high.

 
The guy really took a beating in Sunday's game. I think this is just normal bumps and bruises that happen during an NFL season. Tom Brady was on the injury report for 6 straight years. I really wouldn't read too much into this

 
No one saw the cheap shot by #98 Robert Mathis?

Check out the hit he puts on Peterson in his left hamstring at :54, replay at 1:06.

This play was in the 2nd quarter, so this video corroborates the Rotoworld blurb.
Excellent post here.Bear in mind that this is a desparation home game for the Vikings. 0-2 team with playoff aspirations inserting a backup QB into the game. ADP will play and be heavily involved IMO.

Since when is tackling a ball carrier low a cheap shot?

That is what I am wondering.RBs get hit in the legs all the time.Its how you take them down most effectively.People whined about the Harris hit on him last year...and when you watch it and see the stills from it, he hits him in the thigh.Then even ADP was pissed about it and said it was motivation this year and he was happy after the hit he put back on harris this year (when Harris was dumb enough to go high).

:confused: Peterson said the hit by Harris was legal and didn't ever say that it was dirty - as did the entire Vikings' organization.

It's a cheap shot when someone already has him engaged and you're hitting him from behind with your helmet/shoulder pad. Normally, most low tackles aren't cheap shots and are usually the best way to tackle a guy, but that Mathis hit was a cheap shot.

looked a little unnecessary at the time considering he went with a shoulder straight towards the back of knee area but I don't think I'd go as far as calling it a cheap shot. Pretty close though.

:goodposting: Peterson said the hit by Harris was legal and didn't ever say that it was dirty - as did the entire Vikings' organization.
While not saying it was dirty...here was his comment about the hit in week one this year after the game.“I definitely wanted to come out, and if I had the opportunity, put a little boom on Harris,” Peterson said.

 
BTW, with regards to his injury, if you watch that video that was posted you can see Peterson coming off the field very slowly in the last clip. He got a few touches after that, but he was clearly a little ginger. I didn't notice it during the game but it's pretty clear in that clip that the game took a toll on him.

Someone already having him engaged doesn't mean squat, IMO. He's a ball carrier, not an offensive lineman. If he's not on the ground, as a defender it's your job to make sure he ends up on the ground. You don't simply stand around watching your teammate trying to finish off the tackle. I've seen plenty of RBs, on all levels, rip away from the grasp of only one defender, and Peterson wasn't even close to hitting the ground yet before Mathis hit him on that play.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press suggests that Chester Taylor could play more in Week 3 due to Adrian Peterson's hamstring injury.

Beat writer Sean Jensen doesn't anticipate Peterson sitting out against the Panthers, but it's good bet that AP won't see 29 carries again. The Vikings should avoid putting that much mileage on his tires in a given week anyways.

This has moved up to at least an ugh..

Adrian Peterson admits that his hamstring got "tight" in the Vikings' Week 2 loss and has been sore this week, leading to his limited practice work. Peterson was going to return the final kickoff Sunday, but couldn't do it. "I’m just taking it one day at a time and giving it...rest," he said. "It’s just soreness." Peterson is not thought to be in danger of missing Week 3, but could be listed as questionable on Friday. Keep an eye on him. Sep. 18 - 2:03 p.m. ET Source: Minneapolis Star-Tribune

FWIW
The fact he took a hit to the hammy is good news as it is more of a bruise. A tug to the hammy could be a much longer term issue in my non doctors opinion.

30+ touches will do that to just about anybody...

I see this a little different. It is not illegal, but it is a little cheap in that he was engaged with another group of tacklers who had him bottled up and instead of hitting him he ducked down to hit him in the legs. That seemed like its intent was to hurt. Now, I understand that every tackle you try to hit the guy hard enough to hurt him, but it was a bit borderline in terms of cheapness.
 
(TheHuddle) The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (hamstring) expects to ready to play Week 3. 'I feel I?ll be ready to go,' Peterson said. 'Just take it one day at a time. Just give it a little time to rest.' Peterson said his hamstring began to tighten up in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 2 game.

Analysis: He'll probably be OK, but watch this closely. This is a reminder how, despite the greatness that Peterson displays, he's still an above-average injury risk. Hopefully you stockpiled some strong runners if you drafted A.D. And yes -- it's "A.D." for "All Day," just in case anybody forgot.

 
Adrian Peterson (hamstring) was held out of all phases of Vikings practice Thursday.

This is a downgrade for Peterson, who went through a limited workout on Wednesday. Coach Brad Childress strongly indicated that A.P. could be a game-day call for Sunday's 1PM game vs. Carolina: "He didn’t participate today so that probably says what it says. DNP. It’s a concern. Your legs are your legs. We’ll just see how he comes out by the time we get to Sunday." Sep. 18 - 4:48 pm et
