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.
