Adrian Peterson admits he was “uncomfortable” in Sunday’s loss at Cincinnati. Groin and foot injuries have limited his ability to perform, but the Vikings running back said he’s hopeful that he will be able to play the season and Metrodome finale Sunday against Detroit.

Adrian may have been uncomfortable, but the fans were really uncomfortable watching the pathetic performance by the entire team, except for Patterson's kickoff returns, which there were too many.

This kind of bothers me about AD , he admits he wasn't ready to play but wants to play against the LIons ? I was at the game and I could clearly see AD had no burst at all and couldn't cut much, when a fan can see the obvious why can't the coaching staff? This is a meaningless game and AD is obviously not even close to being healthy I think for once Frazier should man up and say NO your not taking the field this game .

First, hire a general manager who has a brain and then trade Peterson while you can still get something for him. Speilman had 3 chances to pick Nick Foles in 2012 and blew it!

@ dynalee10 -- I 100% agree. This is what happens when you give one player 100 million dollars. They feel compelled to play in every game. You know he saw Toby running wild against the Ravens in the snow, after he went down, and then the following week without him against Philly the Vikings score a season high in points, and Asiata has 3 tds. He's probably thinking, man I have to get back out there, or people will wonder why this team looks better without me on it. Peterson has been a special player for us. But if you aren't ready to roll, step aside and let the healthy guys go out there, you are hurting us (and possibly yourself) more than you are helping.

i admire peterson's toughness for playing with a foot sprain that takes 4-5 weeks normally. however, frazier needs to show some authority for once and shut him down. when you can't cut like he normally can then he is just leaving himself vulnerable to another serious knee or leg injury.

I remember Earl Campbell's short career with the Oilers. He routinely took a pounding, and, all of a sudden, his performance took a nose dive. I think he lasted about 5 years. AP, these days, seems to be getting some of the nagging injuries that come with getting pounded. As much as I like to watch him run for the Vikings, I wonder if he should be traded before his value plummets. It would be a sad day for me, but it might make sense for the Vikings. They have proven that any adequate running back can take enough pressure off the passing game to let the team be successful on the field. (That's if you can field a decent QB)

Let's all wave goodbye to Frazier & his Frazierettes after the game on Sunday. I'm hoping it's the last time we see this very inept coaching crew on our sidelines! Chow, Adios, Sayonara, Goodbye!!!!!

Hear ya AP. The fans don't feel comfortable either. The best move for you is to demand a trade back home to Dallas and get yourself out of this mess!
