It doesn't appear Adrian Peterson will be adding to his list of Metrodome memories. The Vikings' star running back has talked all week about his greatest moments in the building, which will play host Sunday to its final game. But Peterson was listed Friday as doubtful for the season finale against Detroit because of lingering groin and foot injuries. Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson was sore Friday from Thursday's practice. The Vikings also listed backup running back Toby Gerhart as out because of a right hamstring strain, meaning third-stringer Matt Asiata likely will make his second start in three weeks. Peterson, who sat out the Dec. 15 home game against Philadelphia because of a sprained right foot, likely will miss his final two games at the Metrodome. He returned for Sunday's 42-14 loss at Cincinnati to rush 11 times for 45 yards but had just one carry in the second half when the game got out of hand.
