Peterson Carted Off The Field With Right Foot Sprain

Posted Dec 8, 2013

Early in the second quarter of Sunday’s game vs. the Ravens, Adrian Peterson injured his right foot / ankle while catching a pass and being tackled as he went out of bounds. Peterson was up and moving on the sideline trying to loosen the ankle up apparently, but ended up being carted to the locker room for further evaluation.

After the game, Head Coach Leslie Frazier announced that Peterson suffered a sprained right foot and that he'd undergo an MRI back in Minnesota on Monday.

"I really don't know too much about it. I'll find out more after I get my MRI done, but yeah, a mid-foot sprain," said Peterson. "I haven't seen the replay, but my foot was extended and kind of got rolled up, kind of like a horse-collar tackle type. I just felt it pop a couple times and the pain was excruciating. I came in and tried to tape it up again after getting the X-ray done. I just couldn't do it with the push off."

Up to that point Peterson, the NFL's leading rushing coming into play this week, had gone for just 13 yards on seven carries in the sloppy conditions here in Baltimore.
