Peterson Out with ligament tear
Adrian Peterson will be out against the Raiders for certain after the knee injured he sustained against Green Bay on Sunday. He will miss at least one game with a torn lateral collateral ligament(LCL). But the injury is not deemed serious enough to require surgery to end his season. He did not tear any of the major ligaments. This is bittersweet news for Viking fans. Team doctors told Childress that with ligament tears graded on a three-point scale, with three being the worst, Peterson's tear is "two-plus." It's not as serious as an anterior cruciate ligament tear.With a little time Peterson will be back in his same form.
This all for now with the issue.
