According to Brian Murphy of, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was rushed to the hospital after having an allergic reaction to some seafood he ate at lunch time.

“Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was rushed to a Mankato hospital after suffering an allergic reaction to seafood during a team lunch but was successfully treated and cleared to resume his rehabilitation at training camp,” reported Murphy.

“Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson’s face swelled up and he experienced shortness of breath while eating at the Vikings’ dormitory at Minnesota State University following the morning walk-through,’ wrote Murphy. “Peterson was seen riding in a golf cart with trainer Eric Sugarman, who drove him from the medical facility to Gage Hall shortly after the afternoon practice.”

Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says that Peterson is doing fine.

He’s doing fine,” Frazier said. “He’ll pick back up with his rehab (Tuesday). He’s been cleared. Everything’s back to normal now. Bit of a scare but he’s fine now.”

Frazier said that they weren’t aware of Peterson having any food allergies.

“He had mentioned there was a time early in his life where he had an allergic reaction to something, maybe not quite as severe as this,” Frazier said.
