Adrian Peterson Is A Warrior, Plays Through “Chewing Tobacco” Injury

Adrian Peterson was questionable going into today’s game, much to the dismay of fantasy football owners nationwide, after the Vikings reported their running back was suffering from a mysterious illness after the team’s chartered flight. Turns out Peterson swallowed a lip during a turbulent ride to Detroit.

I did this before back in high school and was pretty much useless for the next forty-eight hours. Forget stomach viruses or mono, accidentally ingesting long cut straight is a sickness and pain I would wish on no man. Peterson not only being on the field, but currently closing in on a 100 yard game is madness. We’re talking Jordan flu game type of performance. A true warrior of the gridiron.
