Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Minnesota Vikings running backs Adrian Peterson and Matt Asiata are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Peterson missed last week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a sprained right foot.

The star running back practiced in a limited capacity on Friday. In 13 games this season, Peterson has carried the ball 268 times for 1,221 yards and 10 touchdowns.

"We'll see how he feels tomorrow (Saturday)," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said regarding Peterson. "We didn't have him do every rep but he did enough to where he would feel confident. It was encouraging."

Fellow running back Toby Gerhart also missed last week's game with a hamstring injury. He practiced in full Friday and is listed as probable.

Asiata made his first NFL start against the Eagles and carried the ball 30 times for 51 yards and three touchdowns. The Utah product returned to practice Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday's sessions with an ankle issue.

Tight end John Carlson (concussion) is doubtful and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle) is out.
