Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson expects to play on Sunday after an MRI on his foot revealed no torn ligaments, which also ruled out a Lisfranc injury.

X-rays taken on Sunday were negative.

Peterson told ESPN that he was scheduled to undergo a CT scan on Monday to rule out a fracture but believes he will play against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Peterson left the Vikings game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in the second quarter and did not return after being carted to the locker room.

Peterson is second in the NFL in rushing yards and the reigning NFL MVP.

The Vikings placed tight end Kyle Rudolph on IR Monday, six weeks after he suffered a broken foot.
