Vikes RB Adrian Peterson: Hamstring injury has made me hesitant
Peterson, who has 511 rushing yards and five touchdowns this season, told the paper that he suffered a bruise on his hamstring about five weeks ago and the injury started to cause him gradual tightness which made him tentative. He said the injury overall is more a mental thing than a physical issue.
Peterson carried the ball only 13 times in Monday's night loss to the New York Giants. BANKS: NFL Week 8 picks
