Adrian Peterson, five other Vikings held out of practice

Posted by: Master Tesfatsion under Vikings injury report Updated: December 11, 2013 - 3:50 PM

Vikings running backs Adrian Peterson (groin/foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) were two of six players that did not participate in Wednesday’s practice.

Guard Brandon Fusco (knee) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle) did not practice, though Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said they’re day-to-day. Tight end John Carlson (concussion) has not passed the NFL concussion protocol.

Cornerback Josh Robinson (chest) isn’t expected to practice this week as he recovers from a fractured sternum. He tried to return this week after starting workouts and conditioning last week, but Robinson wasn’t ready. He had a CT scan on Friday that showed no setbacks however.

Linebacker Larry Dean (knee) was limited.

For the Eagles, linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring) was the only player that didn’t participate in practice. Safety Earl Wolff (knee) was limited.
