 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings running back Chester Taylor was receiving treatment Monday for a painful injury on his side that sidelined him in the first quarter of the season opener Sunday.
Taylor's condition was called a bruised hip after the 24-3 victory over Atlanta, but coach Brad Childress said Monday that the injury was to Taylor's oblique, a muscle near the lower part of the rib cage.
Taylor's status will be in question this week, though Childress sounded as though he expected him to play Sunday at Detroit. Taylor was at the team's practice facility at 8 a.m. Monday for treatment with the goal of being ready for Wednesday's practice.
``He's a pretty tough guy,'' Childress said, adding: ``There's nothing structurally wrong. It's just extremely uncomfortable right now.''
Rookie Adrian Peterson, who was supposed to split the carries with Taylor, rushed for 103 yards on 19 attempts and turned a short catch into a 60-yard touchdown.
Childress, however, said he would return to the original plan of sharing the load at that position when Taylor is healthy.
Also, fullback Tony Richardson has a bruised forearm. The 13-year veteran broke his forearm last season and missed the last seven games.
