Peterson set to return to scene of knee injury
They may be sick for another reason on Sunday.
Though Peterson has put the injury behind him and never complained about the legality of Gomes’ hit, he did admit he’d be looking for a little revenge this weekend.
“Maybe a little bit,” he said. “But nothing that’s just overwhelming and really that personal.”
In a situation eerily similar to last year, Peterson has been bothered by a sore ankle this week. Some wondered if playing through the pain last year contributed to Peterson’s knee injury, but most discount the theory. Still, Peterson did not practice on Wednesday was limited on Thursday because of the discomfort, though he did say he planned on playing against the Redskins.
“I wouldn’t call it a concern, but it’s something I definitely want to get back to feeling good,” Peterson said. “I don’t think it’s going to hinder me. I’ve been able to play and push through worse ankle injuries than the one I had, so I’m just focused on the things I can control.”
After all, he may not take Gomes’ hit personally, but that doesn’t mean Peterson won’t be looking for Gomes’ No. 24 this week.
“Of course,” Peterson said with a chuckle. “I’m going to make sure I have my shoulders low. He might be going for the ankles. I’m just going to go out and play ball and just have fun.”
Notes: WR Percy Harvin (hamstring) was limited in practice on Thursday. Coach Leslie Frazier said Harvin started to get sore on Wednesday so they limited him as a precaution. … WR Jerome Simpson (back) practiced on a limited basis after missing on Wednesday. Frazier said he wants to see how Simpson comes back on Friday before they decide on his availability for the game against the Redskins.
