MVP candidate Adrian Peterson in Vikings' doghouse
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who is having an MVP-caliber season, now finds himself in coach Leslie Frazier's doghouse after arriving late to Soldier Field on Sunday
Peterson left the Vikings hotel in a cab at 10 a.m., after missing the team bus. Players were supposed to be at the stadium by 10 a.m. He arrived at 10:23 a.m., just over an hour and a half before kickoff. Peterson’s reason for arriving late is unknown.
Coach Leslie Frazier said "there is something that Adrian and I need to talk about regarding getting to the stadium."Peterson made matters worse by fumbling away his third carry of the game and setting up the Bears' first touchdown. The All-Pro continued to struggle early, rushing for just 32 yards in the first half. He eventually added to his league-leading rushing total with 108 yards on the day.
