Adrian Peterson hospitalized after allergic reaction to seafood: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was rushed to a Mankato hospital after suffering an allergic reaction to seafood during a team lunch but was successfully treated and cleared to resume his rehabilitation at training camp.

Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson's face swelled up and he experienced shortness of breath while eating at the Vikings' dormitory at Minnesota State University following the morning walk-through. Peterson was seen riding in a golf cart with trainer Eric Sugarman, who drove him from the medical facility to Gage Hall shortly after the afternoon practice.

"He's doing fine," Frazier said Monday, July 30. "He'll pick back up with his rehab (Tuesday). He's been cleared. Everything's back to normal now. Bit of a scare but he's fine now."

The team was unaware of any specific food allergies Peterson had, Frazier said.

"He had mentioned there was a time early in his life where he had an allergic reaction to something, maybe not quite as severe as this," the coach said. (Pioneer Press)
