Former Sooner Star Adrian Peterson To Undergo Knee Surgery

  • Adrian Peterson set to have surgery on Thursday to address torn meniscus

The black cloud hanging over Cleveland gets a shot of Miami sunshine, and the Patriots may start you at quarterback - that Belichick is crafty - on this week's National Football League of the Week. But, well, here we are.

First off on Wednesday, head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed that running back Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery Thursday on a meniscus tear in his right knee, and might be done for the season. The Republican governor said he spoke with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis this week and thought Davis was "committed and resolute in the team's interest in relocating to our state". It might sound insane, but there's a chance the answer is "yes".

It's yet another blow to Minnesota's offense.

Through two games, Peterson has had difficulty finding running room behind the Vikings offensive line. He's 31, with a lot of yards and carries on his legs, including a career high 327 last season, also leading the NFL. Bridgewater had six games without a passing touchdown a year ago, too, five fewer than any other regular starter. He's not Dan Marino, but he's quietly been pretty effective recently.

While Hillman said he doesn't know any of his new teammates, he said he's familiar with the team's 2-0 start.

The Vikings were unable to secure the win without suffering a significant injury, however. "We're not going to change and go to like five-wide's every play". The running back said he's approaching his surgery and recovery with "faith and optimism". When they see him coming downhill, everyone is stepping up to stop the run. "We played him past year".

Matt Asiata is listed as next up on the depth chart, though Jerick McKinnon is probably the better back.

It's not out of the question running back Adrian Peterson has played his last game for the Vikings.

Two yards downfield, Fackrell piggybacked onto Peterson.

As we all remember, Peterson recovers superhumanly quickly from major injuries. "We know what is expected of us and we can help the younger guys and the new guys and showing them what to expect on game days". The Vikings also signed Ronnie Hillman, who had 863 yards and seven touchdowns rushing last season for Denver. He returned to rush for more than 2,000 yards in 2012, when he was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player.

"Obviously, it's hard to replace a player like Adrian, " Bradford said. We're going to go forward. "They get rid of the ball quick, and they have great pocket presence".

Zimmer added that left tackle Matt Kalil had been placed on injured reserve with a hip injury.

The Browns say they are "aware of the situation". The defense remains healthy and looks elite. Luck said his throwing shoulder is just sore, downplaying any concern.

One more successful cover-Minnesota's a 7-point underdog at Carolina in Week 3-and the Vikings will match the "07 Patriots and '11 49ers with an eight-game winning streak against the spread".
