Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Minnesota Vikings are unsure if running back Adrian Peterson will be available for this Sunday's road game against the Atlanta Falcons after he hurt his ankle against Oakland this past weekend.

Minnesota head coach Leslie Frazier said Monday that Peterson has a Grade 1 sprain, the least sever of three categories, but also that he won't even try to practice until Friday.

Peterson was in a walking boot at the team facility Monday and said he plans to play, but Frazier said that decision will be made based on the running back's health.
