CINCINNATI -- Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart will play today against the Bengals.

Both Peterson (foot sprain) and Gerhart (hamstring) were listed as questionable but the team expected to have both available after watching them practice this week.

There were no real surprises on the inactive list: quarterback Josh Freeman, cornerback Xavier Rhodes, running back Matt Asiata, offensive tackle Mike Remmers, wide receiver Rodney Smith, defensive tackle Chase Baker and defensive end Justin Trattou.

Rhodes was declared out on Friday because of an ankle sprain. Shaun Prater will start in his place.
