A scary incident took place at Vikings camp today when running back Adrian Peterson had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance after getting sick from having an allergic reaction to some seafood. But Peterson was out of the hospital and back to the team’s dorm within a few hours.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier acknowledged being scared when he first learned that Peterson was having shortness of breath and swelling in the face, but the medical staff took care of Peterson and he was OK.

“I don’t know if any one of you has had anyone experience that, but, yeah, it was scary,” Frazier said. “But he’s fine now. Everything’s fine.”

Peterson, who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list while he rehabilitates his torn ACL, will be back at work on Tuesday.

“We’re anticipating him being back in rehab tomorrow, whether he’s doing things in the pool or back out on the field. He’s cleared to get going tomorrow,” Frazier said.

And we’re anticipating that he’ll stay away from the seafood at lunch.
