Toby Gerhart injury adds to Minnesota Vikings woes

The Minnesota Vikings are "optimistic" that Toby Gerhart will play against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend.

Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart is a doubt for Sunday's clash with the Philadelphia Eagles with a hamstring complaint.

Gerhart sustained the injury during last weekend's whirlwind defeat to the Baltimore Ravens, a game in which first-choice Adrian Peterson had also been hurt.

With Peterson still struggling himself, the Vikings are hopeful of having Gerhart active. Otherwise second-year back Matt Asiata will be called into action.

The team said via their official Twitter page: "Coach [Leslie] Frazier says he's more optimistic with Gerhart than with Peterson, but also said Peterson is a fast healer and is determined to play."

Gerhart has 283 rushing yards to his name so far this season, with two touchdowns.
