Peterson, who said not playing was tougher than he could express, sang the praises of Asiata.

“He did a good job, you know he was in there and was efficient and was able to help move the chains a lot, three TDs; he had a big day,” said Peterson, who missed his first full game of the season.

Did Peterson work with Asiata during the week?

“We take stuff from each other, and if there’s stuff that I see that he can do better, then I give him advice, or vice versa,” said Peterson, who added that he has no doubt he will play next week.

Coaches praised

Despite all the injuries, General Manager Rick Spielman pointed out that the coaches and players never quit.

“It’s just a tribute to our coaches and the way they keep bringing these young players along,” Spielman said. “And when their number gets called, they get an opportunity to step up and you’re seeing all these guys that people probably have to look at the flip card to figure out who the heck they are, and they’ve stepped in and been key for us.

“[Sunday] was just like back in the Washington Redskins game [which the Vikings won 34-27 in Week 10] where we only had 44 active guys, and it’s a tribute to the coaches and the players for hanging in there. We have a lot of great, great character guys in our locker room.”


Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on 830-AM at 7:40 and 8:40 a.m. and on Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
