Peterson has a sprained ankle (good news!)

Minnesota has become the good-news capital of the world the past week or so. You know, the dismissal of Brad Childress, the introduction of Leslie Frazier and the game-winning 10 yard-rumble by Brett Favre as he heroically battled the flu.

Now, it seems that Adrian Peterson’s ankle is simply a sprain and nothing worse.

It is, I’m sure, a huge relief for the Vikings.

"Now, it's just a matter of what he can or can't do," Frazier said on 1500 ESPN today, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We'll know a little more (Wednesday) when he tries to put some weight on it and move around. So we're anxious to find out how he comes along."

After Peterson hurt himself in the second quarter last Sunday, he got his ankle re-taped, and it seemed like he was more than ready to return to the game. But the coaches kept him out, which was a little worrisome. But if his injury is simply an ankle sprain – as long as it’s not the dreaded high ankle sprain – he very could return this week vs. the Bills, even with little to no practice.

It's not so much that it's "just the Bills", because this is the NFL and "any given Sunday" (sorry, I hate using that).  But the bigger benefit to sitting him is you get to see more of what Gerhart can do.  He seemed more than capable last week the little that I saw.

This coming from a pompous Steelers fan!  :)

I agree completely and glad to see a Packers fan who can talk football without being a pompous @ss.  I look forward to hearing more you have to say without since you don't show bias in your writing.

They would be wise to keep him out of the Bills game.  After all it is the Bills.  He is probably not needed.
I know the Bills have been playing really tough all year and should have won more games but they always seem to find a way to lose and the Vikes are riding high with their new coach.
They can win this game handily without Peterson.
While many scoff they still have an outside chance at the playoffs if they win out and get help (GB or CHI will win the division obviously but a fall from grace by either team, and others in the NFC opens the door).  Crazier things have happened and they would need Peterson in case they do have a shot.
Too bad Minny will probably end up with a better record than anybody in the NFC West.
