Update: Peterson is questionable to return with cramps.
The Minnesota Vikings are trying to hold on to a 28-20 lead against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6 but will have to gut out the final moments of the contest without CB Patrick Peterson. Peterson was covering a deep ball from Sam Darnold and landed awkwardly while breaking up the pass. He was eventually carted to the locker room.
Peterson appears to be dealing with a leg injury, specifically around his calf or ankle. He had trouble walking after breaking up the pass and ultimately had to leave the field on a cart. With the contest almost wrapped up, it’s unlikely he’ll need to come back on the field. We’ll see if Peterson is dealing with a long-term ailment once the week’s injury report starts to develop.
