An initial round of tests on his injured foot showed no Lisfranc injury and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson reportedly got good news after a CT scan as well.

Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press reports that a team official confirmed that the results of further testing on Monday confirmed that Peterson will not need to have surgery to repair the injury. That leaves the door open for a return to the field this season.
