The last remaining shiny part of the Vikings turned to rust this past weekend when Adrian Peterson left the game in the second quarter with a high ankle sprain. If Minnesota is smart, they won't play him for at least a week or two. High ankle sprains have a history of popping up again if they aren't healed correctly the first time, and it's not like this team is in the middle of a playoff race like the Bears. —Tony Markovich
