Adrian Peterson dealing with Grade 1 high-ankle sprain

Adrian Peterson told reporters that he's dealing with a Grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a Grade 2 low-ankle sprain.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson has been resilient over his career when it's come to injuries, but on a short week this is certainly something to monitor. He's going up against his former team in the Vikings on Thursday, making him a fringe RB3 in a bad matchup, even without the injury.

Adrian Peterson rushes for 81 yards, loses a fumble Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 20 times for 81 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson did not have a ton of success in poor weather conditions on Sunday, but the new regime in Washington is making it clear that it wants the veteran running back a focul point of the offense.

Adrian Peterson returns to practice Thursday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a quad injury.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson received a veteran rest day on Wednesday, but his full practice on Thursday means that he is good to go for the team's Week 7 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

Adrian Peterson (quad) misses practice

Running back Adrian Peterson missed Wednesday’s practice with a quad injury.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson had his best game of the season in Week 6, but now finds himself on the injury report. This is a situation to monitor as the week progresses. Fellow running back Chris Thompson also missed practice on Wednesday. Wendell Smallwood would be the next man up if both backs end up missing this weekend's contest.

Adrian Peterson tops 100 yards rushing in first game under new regime

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 23 times for 118 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson had easily his best game of the season and looked rejuvenated under interim head coach Bill Callahan's new approach. After being inactive in Week 1 and not seeing more than 12 carries in a game this season, Peterson saw 23 carries on Sunday. However, Sunday's performance came against the rebuilding Dolphins. Peterson might not find the same success over the next few weeks with the 49ers, Vikings, and Bills and their stingy defenses on tap.
