Minnesota Vikings Inactives: Adrian Peterson, CBs Asher Allen, Chris Cook Out Vs. Broncos

Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow's struggles in the passing game have been well documented, but with the Vikings missing three key cornerbacks in Sunday's match up, maybe Tebow will finally light it up through the air. Star Vikings CB Antoine Winfield is already out for the season with a broken clavicle, and vs. Denver the Vikings will also be without Asher Allen and Chris Cook in the secondary. Benny Sapp, who is back with the Vikings in 2011 after a stint with the Miami Dolphins, will fill in for Allen at corner.

The Vikings will also be without RB Adrian Petersen, whose high ankle sprain will keep him out for a second straight game. Starting in his place will be ex-Stanford Cardinal Toby Gerhart. Here is the full inactive list for Week 13:

  • CB Asher Allen
  • CB Chris Cook
  • OL Brandon Fusco
  • OL DeMarcus Love
  • RB Adrian Peterson
  • DE D'Aundre Reed
  • S Andrew Sendejo
