Adrian Peterson still intends to play for Washington versus Vikings

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (ankle) said he plans to play in Thursday's Week 8 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

What It Means:

Peterson has reportedly been diagnosed with a Grade 1 high-ankle sprain and Grade 2 low-ankle sprain, but he says his foot is "feeling good." If Peterson winds up being ruled out, Wendell Smallwood may be asked to lead Washington's backfield.
