Vikings Peterson aims to play in finale

Posted:

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is aiming to play in the season finale despite a sprained right foot that has slowed him the last few weeks.

Peterson took part in practice Thursday. He said prior to the workout his "mindset is to be out there" Sunday against Detroit, the last game ever at the Metrodome. But Peterson acknowledged he felt uncomfortable last week at Cincinnati.

He said "stay tuned," as to whether he'll be healthy enough to play.

There's no doubt about defensive end Jared Allen's status, at least for Sunday. He has 9 1/2 sacks and has stated his desire to reach double digits for a seventh straight season. But this will likely be Allen's last game with Minnesota.
