Peterson on 'The Rich Eisen Podcast'
Peterson is sixth in the NFL with 296 yards rushing through three games and has three touchdowns for the Vikings.
Also absent from practice was middle linebacker E.J. Henderson, who was bothered last week by a sore left knee but played against the Lions. Backup safety and special teams player Tyrell Johnson (hip) and tight end Jim Kleinsasser (elbow) were listed on the injury report as limited in Wednesday's workout.
