Adrian Peterson In Sioux Falls On Thursday
Adrian Peterson In Sioux Falls On Thursday

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is in Sioux Falls this afternoon after reportedly missing practice due to personal reasons.

When contacted by the Argus Leader, Little Coalinga Bar and Grill owner Jane Bammert confirmed that the reigning NFL MVP had lunch at the Indiana Avenue restaurant. Bammert said Peterson was a “super nice guy” and treated her staff well, eating one and a half hot turkey sandwiches then posing for pictures.

Peterson didn’t say why he was in the city.

“They didn’t offer, and I didn’t ask,” Bammert said.

The team announced Thursday that he was missing practice but was expected to return Friday. It wasn’t immediately known why Peterson was in Sioux Falls.

Peterson is second in the NFL with 421 yards rushing. After an ordinary first three weeks by his lofty standards, Peterson rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns to help the Vikings get their first victory of the season two weeks ago against Pittsburgh.

The Vikings had the bye last week and Peterson returned to practice with the team on Wednesday in preparation for their game against Carolina.

Peterson’s five touchdowns rushing lead the NFL.
