Peterson hoped to play against the Philadelphia Eagles despite a foot and groin injury. However, K-TWIN Vikings analyst Sean Jensen and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport are reporting Peterson will not play today.

If Peterson does not play, Minnesota’s caution makes sense. The Vikings are not in playoff contention, and it makes sense to allow their franchise player to rest. While other players need to put something on tape to stay in the league, Peterson’s job is safe.
Unfortunately, Peterson’s fantasy football owners are in danger today.
