The Vikings lost another player to a knee injury when their running back, Adrian Peterson.
Last night during Sunday Night Football, Peterson went down during the third quarter on a 5-yard run with a right knee injury. Peterson left the game where he couldn’t put weight on that knee and in visible pain too.
Updates are still rolling in on the damage he received, but undoubtedly, Peterson is out. The Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that this morning, Peterson will receive an MRI.
This isn’t Peterson’s only knee injury since back in 2011, he tore his left ACL. The only good thing out of that 2011 injury was Peterson’s comeback was amazing.
The coach had this to say about the injury, “He might miss a week. I don’t know if he will or not. Whatever it has calmed down now, so we’ll see.”
The other Vikings’ player that went out for the season was their quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater’s knee injury is a dislocated left knee, a torn ACL and other structural damage during their last preseason practice. Bridgewater’s injury occurred during a non-contact drill too.
