Without Peterson, look for more Patterson

Think Cordarelle Patterson likes to celebrate with officials?
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be held out of today's game with the Eagles according to a report from Sean Jenson of KTWIN.

Peterson suffered a mid-foot sprain last weekend,

Peterson's backup, Toby Gerhart, also will be scratched per  the report. Gerhart strained a hamstring last week.

That makes Matt Asiata (5-11, 234) the starter.

But the Eagles should be ready to defend rookie Corradelle Patterson as well. The game-breaking wide receiver/kick returner has five carries for 35 yards this season, including a 35-yard score two weeks ago.

Patterson has sub 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash.

To paraphrase the old-timers,  Patterson has two speeds ... here he comes and there he goes.
