Vikings' Peterson Ruled Out for Sunday

November 26, 2011 Updated Oct 27, 2013 at 1:37 AM CDT

Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Atlanta with a high ankle sprain.

Peterson injured the ankle during the first half of last week's game and spent much of this week in a walking boot, not practicing at all with the team.

It will be only the fourth game Peterson has missed in his five-year career, as Toby Gerhart will get the start in his absence.
