Former Oklahoma and current Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was held out of practice as a precaution Thursday because of lingering groin and foot injuries, but he is expected to play Sunday at Cincinnati, according to coach Leslie Frazier.

Peterson did not play in the victory over Philadelphia because of a sprained right foot, but practiced Wednesday despite being listed on the week's initial injury report with an additional groin issue. He received treatment Thursday to "work through some of the kinks," Frazier said.

"I think based on what we saw yesterday, we should be fine," Frazier said. "Just wanted to be smart with him and get him back out here (Friday). Unless something comes up that I don't foresee, he should be ready to go on Sunday." (Pioneer Press)
