Vikings RB Peterson questionable, plans to play

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a sprained foot.

Peterson said Friday he expects to play with Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy "within reach" in the pursuit of the 2013 NFL rushing title

"It's not over 200, so it's still in play," Peterson said.

Peterson missed last week's victory over the Eagles with the foot injury suffered Week 14 at Baltimore. Toby Gerhart (hamstring) also sat out last week.

Peterson said "As far as the foot, I'll be ready to go."

Peterson has 1,221 yards rushing, considerably off his 2,097-yard total of 2012.

Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson was limited in Friday's practice but "should be" able to play.
