Peterson & Rudolph Out, Reisner In

The Vikings impotent offense will be even shorter on firepower against the Falcons on Sunday.

Both running back Adrian Peterson and tight end Kyle Rudolph are expected to miss the game.  Rudolph has a quadriceps injury and Peterson has a high ankle sprain.

To account for Rudolph’s absence, the Vikings promoted tight end Allen Reisner to the 53 man roster from the practice squad.  They made room for Reisner by waiving rookie wide receiver Stephen Burton.   

These injuries are just one of many reasons the Vikings are expected to lose to Atlanta.
