06:08 PM ET 12.09 | Week 14 was a cruel week, with weather and the injury bug biting teams in a big way. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL, Arizona Cardinals rookie defensive back Tyrann Mathieu tore his ACL and LCL and then Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson went down with a lower leg injury of his own. There was no official word on the severity of Peterson's right foot sprain until today. Vikings fans, breathe a sigh of relief. Peterson was able to avoid any broken bones and damaged ligaments, but perhaps the greatest news about the sprain is he avoided the dreaded Lisfranc variety. There are still some tests to be done, but hopefully the news will continue to be positive.

Get your rest buddy.

My Eagles need the win. Your Vikings need the draft position. Everybody wins.

He is a selfish pri___K. Has kids he's never seen and probably never gave a dime to, wants to play to win the rushing record, doesn't really give two shakes about the team really. Hey if they traded him and Jared Allen they could draft a team of first rounders.
