Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has suffered from an injury that could cost him his chance to break the record for most rushing yards in a season. Eric Dickerson currently holds the record, but Peterson’s strained abdominal muscle could set Peterson back as the Vikings head into a game against the Green Bay Packers.
Peterson only needs to rush 207 more yards to break Dickerson’s record. The Los Angeles Rams player got a total of 2,105 yards when he played in 1984.
“Adrian is a little bit sore with his abdominal muscle,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier tells the Associated Press. “We’ll have to see how he does this week, how much work that we’ll give him as we get ready for this ballgame, which will be a huge ballgame for our team.”
