Zimmer: Adrian Peterson has torn meniscus in knee

Zimmer: Adrian Peterson has torn meniscus in knee

Zimmer did not rule out that Peterson might be able to play Sunday at Carolina.

"(He is) going through the evaluation process to figure out what the next procedure will be and the options that we have", Zimmer said.

The Minnesota Vikings opened brand new US Bank Stadium with a 17-14 win over rival Green Bay on Sunday night thanks to a massive game from Sam Bradford.

After Peterson suffered a right knee injury, he was helped off the field by medical staff and had to hobble his way through a series of restaurants before reaching his destination.

A torn meniscus often calls for several weeks of rehab.

Quotable: "He can throw the ball", Zimmer told the Associated Press of Bradford's performance in his Vikings debut.

"He's sitting down with the doctors and [head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman]", Zimmer said. Linebacker Lamarr Houston left the game with a left knee injury.

To replace Bridgewater, the Vikings sent a first- and a fourth-round draft pick to Philadelphia on September 3 for Sam Bradford. In his first start since being traded to the Vikings just two weeks ago, Bradford was 22-of-30 passing for 286 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. Burnett said after the game that his hamstring tightened and gave him problems during the second half.

Adrian Peterson's definitely injured, but might not keep him sidelined for long.

Arian Foster played most of the 2010 season with a torn meniscus and led the league in rushing with 1,616 yards.

Danny Woodhead, RB, Chargers: Woodhead went on season-ending injured reserve Monday with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Peterson had just 12 attempts for 19 yards during the Vikings' win over the Packers Sunday night, his second consecutive game managing just 1.6 yards per carry.

Asiata and McKinnon filled in for Peterson when he missed the final 15 games in 2014 because of a child-abuse incident. Asiata said the experience he and McKinnon gained that season could prove beneficial.

"I know he's got some things going on in the middle of the week", McCarthy said.

Asiata is good friends with Peterson.

"Defensively, we stopped the run very well", he said. They added three more points just before halftime when Walsh kicked a 46-yard field goal to make it a 10-7 game. "You never want to see guys go down like that". To be fair, right tackle Phil Loadholt retired because of an injury, Mike Harris is still missing with a mysterious ailment, and center John Sullivan was cut before the season because the Vikings assessed that Joe Berger was better for the job.

According to injury expert Dr. David Chao, Peterson will require surgery for the meniscus tear.

"We have been trying to find ways to get the young man active, and because of what we have to do on special teams and all that, we haven't had the chance to put him active".

"If Jonathan's [injury] is prolonged", Rivera said, "then we certainly will get an opportunity to see Cameron Artis-Payne out there which I'm pretty excited about because he is a heck of a young football player".
