AP might be skipping out on a trip to London this week.
The veteran running back missed Thursday’s practice, according to NFL Network’s James Palmer, who is stationed across the sea.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Peterson “tweaked his knee a little in practice” on Wednesday, per a source informed of the situation, noting that the runner’s absence was a “mix” of that setback along with taking a “veteran” break.
Peterson is coming off a game where he ran just nine times for 33 yards in a 34-13 romp over Carolina. He’s shown flashes of his remarkable running style this season, but Peterson’s overall body of work — 77 yards at 3.3 yards per carry — has been underwhelming.
