Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings was listed as questionable on Saturday night because of an illness, but was able to start Sunday’s 28-19 victory game against the Lions. According to the player it was shrimps, and not tobacco the reason he was feeling ill.

Peterson learned he was allergic to shellfish, when he had an allergic reaction to jambalaya in 2012 during a training camp. He used his Epipen after ingesting shrimps on Saturday.

“That might have had something to do with it. I didn’t have any type of reaction, but I’m sure it contributed to how my stomach was feeling,” Peterson explained. “Sometimes I love shrimp so much that I go against the grain sometimes. I always make sure I keep an EpiPen with me.”

The player said that next time he will not eat shrimps before a game, he realized this after he vomited on the team’s bus. “I learned my lesson,” he said.

After media started speculating that it was because he swallowed tobacco when the plane he was in hit turbulence, the player denied it and said, “I’ve been dipping for the last 10 years. For me to swallow a dip, my body’s immune to it. That doesn’t affect me at all,”

Peterson logged 1,490 yards on 283 carries in 14 career games against the Lions.
