Report: Peterson, Gerhart Out

The Eagles will be facing a banged-up Vikings rushing attack, according to a report.

Per Sean Jensen of K-TWIN in Minnesota, the Vikings will be without both Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart.


Matt Asiata (5-11, 209) had three carries for 9 yards last year, but does not have a rushing attempt this season. The second-year back out of Utah is more power runner than speedster, according to this profile.

Banyard (5-11, 205) does not have an NFL carry. He spent 2012 on the Vikings’ practice squad.
