Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said that an MRI exam on his sprained foot revealed no torn ligaments and ruled out a Lisfranc injury, reports ESPN.com’s Ben Goessling.

He was injured during the second quarter of the Vikings’ 29-26 loss to the Baltimore Ravens after a reception.

Peterson said he was going to undergo a CT scan to see if there was an bone damage to the foot and says he expects to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday even though he was in a walking boot on Monday.

Peterson only carried the ball seven times for 13 yards before leaving the game with the injury. He is second in the NFL in rushing behind Eagles running LeSean McCoy, who ran for a team-record 217 yards in their victory over the Detroit Lions.

“You can’t ignore that fact,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said. “You want to know exactly how severe the injury is, and it helps you make that kind of a decision. So as we learn more about the severity of it, or the lack of severity, then you can make a clear decision about this ballgame and future ballgames in this season.”
