Adrian Peterson Tears Ligiment

by

The #1 back in the NFL, rookie superstar, & Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson will miss Sunday’s game against Oakland with a torn ligament in his right knee, coach Brad Childress said Monday.

Childress said Peterson tore his lateral collateral ligament in the Vikings’ 34-0 loss to Green Bay. Peterson will not require surgery, Childress said.

“The good news is that the knee is otherwise stable and the injury is isolated to that ligament,” Childress said. “I’m told that’s a good-healing ligament.”

Childress said the injury is not a season-ending injury, but he did not talk about when Peterson might be back.

    I read this today on the Adrian Peterson website:

    “Peterson becomes the first Vikings rookie since Randy Moss (1993) and first Vikings rookie running back since Chuck Foreman (1973) to be named to the Pro Bowl.”

    “The Vikings have the No. 1 rushing offense in the league, and that success has helped get center Matt Birk and guard”

    What a god he is and he is only just starting, if he can avoid more injuries…dammmm.

    Mike.
