Those were the two most significant injury updates in Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier's postseason media conference on Tuesday.
Peterson's abdominal injury -- described by Frazier on Tuesday as a "core muscle issue" -- first appeared on the injury report before the Dec. 16 game at St. Louis. He dropped out late in the following week's game at Houston but nonetheless led the NFL in rushing.
Kluwe was on the injury report beginning with the Nov. 4 game at Seattle. He didn't miss any game time and finished the season ranked 22nd in gross average (45.0 yards) and 17th in net (39.7) among full-time punters.
Frazier also confirmed end Jared Allen will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder after the Pro Bowl, which will be played on Jan. 27 in Honolulu.
