The Minnesota Vikings were dealt another serious blow Wednesday. Running back Adrian Peterson will have to undergo surgery to repair his torn meniscus, according to ESPN.
Peterson will miss multiple games, according to ESPN. He will more than likely be out at least three months, NFL Network reported. Peterson suffered the injury in the Vikings’ win against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night.
Mike Zimmer announced his injury Monday and didn’t rule out the possibility of him returning to the field for Week 3. However, ESPN suggests that he could end of missing the remainder of the season should Minnesota miss the playoffs.
Majority of the run game will rely on the shoulders of Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata.
