Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson miss the team bus yesterday to Soldier Field for a reason that has still not been explained.
Peterson did start, and rushed for over 100 yards again for the Vikings in a loss to the Bears.
Simply missing a team bus may not seem like a big deal, but according to NFL.com Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was not feeling it, and felt it was a big deal.
“We talked and it has not been something that’s come up in the past,” Frazier said during his Monday news conference. “We definitely have talked. Anytime your leader is not where he is supposed to be, it’s not good. I talk to our team all the time about being where you’re supposed to be and being where you’re supposed to be on time. It’s a big deal.”
Frazier was asked when he noticed Peterson was not on the bus.
“When we left,” Frazier said, drawing laughter. “He’s Adrian Peterson, so I know if he’s on or not on.”
