Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson spoke out Thursday as to why he missed the team bus from the hotel to Soldier Field on Sunday: he overslept.
'I slept through the alarm, through the calls. I overslept. I had the wake-up call set up. I slept through it. That's it. It's unfortunate. But you know, it happened," Peterson told the media.
The Star Tribune reported that Peterson and head coach Leslie Frazier have "turned the page," from the incident.
The Pioneer Press reported that Peterson was seen getting into a cab at 10 a.m., and arrived at Soldier Field at around 10:23 a.m., about 20 minutes past the reporting time.
