Washington RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He put in a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out the first 2 workouts. Peterson is a weak fantasy option against a tough Minnesota defense. But he's available if you need him.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) will play against the Vikings tonight, "barring any pregame setback." He'll be playing through what he said is a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a grade 2 low-ankle sprain. Peterson was already a shaky fantasy starter against the Vikings' 5th-ranked RB defense. The ankle injury just adds more risk.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. He said earlier this week that he's dealing with a minor high-ankle sprain and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. Peterson was already in a bad spot as a big road underdog against a tough Vikings defense. The ankle only adds more downside. Wendell Smallwood figures to operate as Washington's lead back vs. Minnesota if Peterson sits. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he has a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a grade 2 low-ankle sprain. (Ankle sprains are graded on a 1 to 3 scale, with 1 being the least severe.) Peterson added that he's "good" -- but it's unclear if he'll be available for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. With RB Chris Thompson (toe) unlikely to play, Peterson's absence would leave Wendell Smallwood as Washington's lead back.

Injury Predictor

Peterson tore the meniscus in his right knee in September of 2016. He returned to play just 1 more game (Week 15) before his season ended with knee and groin injuries. This year, the 32-year old will play backup to Mark Ingram in New Orleans. That should minimize his injury risk.
