It turns out that Adrian Peterson’s injury last week looked a lot worse than it actually was.

Many feared the worst when he was writhing in pain on the field in Baltimore, but it turns out that he suffered only a foot sprain and not a serious ankle or foot injury. An MRI on Monday revealed no tears in the Viking’s foot and no Lisfranc injuries either — both of which would have ended his season.

Whether he suits up on Sunday is the real question the fantasy owners are on the edge of their computer chairs waiting for now.

Peterson and fellow back Toby Gerhart had a light practice on Friday and both are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
