Asher Allen joins Adrian Peterson on today's inactive list

Posted by: under Vikings, Adrian Peterson Updated: December 4, 2011 - 10:35 AM

The Vikings’ inactive list has just been released at Mall of America Field and for the second consecutive week it includes running back Adrian Peterson, still out with the high ankle sprain that he suffered two weeks ago against Oakland. Peterson was declared out for this game on Friday and will be joined on the inactive list today by cornerback Asher Allen, who suffered a shoulder sprain in the first quarter of last week’s loss in Atlanta.

Allen was back at practice this week as a limited participant but will be unable to go today. Also inactive for the Vikings: safety Andrew Sendejo, defensive end D’Aundre Reed, cornerback Chris Cook and offensive linemen DeMarcus Love and Brandon Fusco.
 
Denver will be without standout rookie linebacker Von Miller, recovering from thumb surgery earlier in the week. Other Broncos inactives are safety Rahim Moore, fullback Quinn Johnson, linebacker Mike Mohamed, tight end Julius Thomas and offensive linemen Tony Hills and Manny Ramirez.
