EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian
Peterson did not practice on Thursday because of an injured
hamstring. Coach Brad Childress calls the injury "a concern" because
Peterson was able to do limited work in practice on Wednesday, but
was too sore to go a day later.
Before practice began, Peterson told reporters that he is
hopeful to play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He was
injured late in last weekend's loss to Indianapolis, but did not
specify which leg was hurt. Peterson leads the NFL in rushing with 263 yards through two games. If he cannot play on Sunday, backup Chester Taylor will get the bulk of the carries.
