The news continues to be good regarding the status of Adrian Peterson's sprained right foot.
Both Peterson and Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier confirmed Monday that Peterson will visit a foot specialist and undergo more X-rays and a CT scan. The reigning league MVP said a Lisfranc injury was ruled out.
"Well, it's a little painful," Peterson said, via The Star Tribune. "Obviously it kept me out of the game. The MRI came back great so that's good. Just got to get a CT scan to make sure the bone is OK."
Peterson was carted off the field after being tackled following a 5-yard reception in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Peterson's goal is to play Sunday. We know enough by now not to doubt him.
