MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was rushed to the hospital Monday afternoon after suffering an allergic reaction to seafood during lunch at training camp.
Peterson was eating with the team at Minnesota's dorm when he had the reaction, suffering shortness of breath and facial swelling, according to coach Leslie Frazier. An ambulance was called in to hurry Peterson to the nearest hospital, where he received treatment.
The running back, who is rehabbing from left knee surgery in December, was back at the team's dorms this afternoon Frazier said and was feeling better. Frazier said he expects Peterson will be back on the field and continuing his rehab on Tuesday.
"We had to rush him to the hospital and they diagnosed it. He's back now in the dorm resting. He's doing fine. He'll pick back up with his rehab tomorrow. He's been cleared. Everything's back to normal now. A little bit of a scare, but he's fine."
After watching the morning walk-through, Peterson was the only player not at the afternoon portion of Vikings' practice as the team had their first full practice in pads.
