Saints trying to injure Peterson again
NFL.com news: Peterson is latest opponent to call out Saints for dirty play
When Adrian Peterson returned to action Sunday after a three-game absence, he expected his high left ankle sprain would be a target for over-eager defenders looking for an edge.
There's a line to that in-the-trenches type of gamesmanship, however, and the Vikings' all-world running back said the Saints crossed it. Peterson singled out cornerback Jabari Greer, whom he said twisted his ankle in the scrum following a second-quarter run during New Orleans' 42-20 victory.
"I came into the game kind of expecting that coming back from a high ankle sprain," Peterson said, according to The Times-Picayune. "Guys are going to try to take their shots when we're on the pile and try to twist it up and things like that.
"I felt like it kind of got overboard. I got up and kind of got in his face. Thank God I was able to keep my composure."
