Peterson hurt in Vikings loss to Packers

Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson sprained his right knee during Minnesota’s 34-0 loss at Green Bay Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Peterson took a low hit on the knee from Green Bay cornerback Al Harris then flipped forward through the air and lay on the ground for a few minutes.

"I didn't know what to expect," Peterson said, according to the Associated Press. "I was just in pain for a minute there and it slowly went away."

Peterson will have an MRI on his right knee Monday.

According to WCCO, Peterson was able to jog back and forth down the sidelines near the end of the game, but never returned to the game.

“There was no point,? said Vikings head coach Brad Childress.
