Frazier: Peterson questionable; Carlson could head to IR; Rhodes out Sunday


Head coach Leslie Frazier gave the final update of the week on the Vikings injury report today after practice, with Adrian Peterson's health being the most noted topic.

The third-year head coach said Peterson is questionable for Minnesota's clash with Cincinnati Sunday, though he noted Thursday he expects AP to play, and AP restated that sentiment after practice.

The reigning MVP participated in practice on a limited basis Friday, as he continues to recover from a slew of lower-body injuries.

John Carlson, who suffered a concussion against Baltimore two weeks ago, is doubtful and Frazier said he may be headed for injured reserve, which would shelf the tight end for the season.

The only player ruled out was cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who also hasn't played since the Baltimore contest. Chris Cook however, looks to be progressing, as he recovers from a knee injury.

Frazier added one more injury note, saying Toby Gerhart, who missed last week with a hamstring injury, will play Sunday should everything go well tomorrow.
