Found October 23, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Minnesota Viking announced yesterday that running back Adrian Peterson, offensive lineman Matt Kalil and defensive end Jared Allen all would have been sidelined due to injury if the team had practiced yesterday, reports Joseph Alper of ProFootballTalk.com. The Vikings estimated that running back Adrian Peterson, tackle Matt Kalil and defensive end Jared Allen all would have been sidelined at practice on Monday. Peterson continues to deal with an ankle sprain that’s landed him on the Vikings’ injury report the past few weeks. Even so, the All-Pro has continued to put up gaudy rushing totals. Allen was limited at practice last week due to a groin injury, but he was able to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Kalil’s injury was new, as he wasn’t included on last week’s list. Minnesota said cornerback Antoine Winfield (knee) and tight end John Carlson (concussion) also wouldn’t have practiced yesterday.
