Gerhart's chance to make free-agent case?

The good news for Adrian Peterson is that tests revealed he did not sustain a long-term injury to his foot. However, ESPN Minnesota Vikings reporter Ben Goessling cited a source Monday evening who said that it is "unlikely" that All Day will play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. 1500ESPN.com's Judd Zulgad took it a step further, making a case for shutting Peterson down for the remainder of the season. That would give the free-agent-to-be Toby Gerhart a chance to build his resume for the offseason.
