Adrian Peterson, Xavier Rhodes hurt vs. Bears

The Vikings temporarily lost the services of Adrian Peterson and Xavier Rhodes in the first half Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson limped off the field after having his left ankle twisted late in the second quarter against the Chicago Bears, later walking to the locker room at the two-minute warning.

Peterson had gained 56 yards on 12 carries in the first half before leaving the game with the Vikings leading 10-7.

He was listed as probable to return just before halftime. While he didn't play in Minnesota's first drive of the second half, he returned for the second drive.

The Vikings also lost Xavier Rhodes for the end of one series after a right leg injury. Rhodes ended up returning on the final series of the half as Alshon Jeffery scored two plays after Rhodes was sidelined. Rhodes continued to play in the second half.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater also took a low shot to his legs after releasing a touchdown pass to Jerick McKinnon on the team’s final play of the second half, but he wasn’t being looked at by the medical staff after that play and was expected to return to the game.
