Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery on his right knee to fix a torn meniscus but could return this season, Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (28) carries the ball and is injured on the play during the third quarter against the Green Bay Packers Sept.18 at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Vikings (2-0) signed running back Ronnie Hillman, who was on Denver's Super Bowl-winning team last season.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery on Thursday.

The Vikings, who conclude the regular season January 1 against Chicago, have not put Peterson on injured reserve. "A lot of mistakes last year I probably would not make this year". "With Adrian being banged up right now, it's a loss, but with those two guys, I think they still have an opportunity to be risky in the run game".

Eighty-four percent of the tickets printed by William Hill US (which operates a majority of Nevada's sports books) on last week's Sunday Night Football game were on the Packers minus-1.5 over the Vikings. We're going to continue to stay that way, " Zimmer said. With only 19 yards on 12 carries and two receptions out of the backfield for seven yards before he went out with a knee injury, which turned out to be a torn meniscus and unsure for a return.

MacOS Sierra launch time and new Apple features revealed
Messages on macOS can now see the stickers sent by iOS users, as well as handwritten texts, but those can't be created on the app. More specifically, Apple says, your computer will need OS X 10.7.5 or later, 2GB of RAM, and 8.8GB of free storage.


"At this point and time I think it's hard to find left tackles that are on the street, " Zimmer said. "I just look at it as a way to get better every day and learn something new".

In the case of Bridgewater, Minnesota was probably right to press the panic button and send a 2017 first-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder the next year to Philadelphia for Sam Bradford.

While some fans are obsessing about whether players take a knee, raise a fist or lock arms during the national anthem before games, Sherman said they should be talking about the reasons why players are protesting.

Zimmer has experience playing without Peterson from his first Vikings season of 2014.

McKinnon has just three rushes for eight yards so far this season, but he rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 5.2 yards per carry in 2015 to go along with 21 receptions for 173 yards and one touchdown as a backup. Take our shots when we get a chance.

Regardless, Kalil, who had played all 68 regular-season and playoff games during his first five seasons with the Vikings, will be out for awhile. We're going to miss him. If Garoppolo can't play, wide receiver Julian Edelman will back up Jacoby Brissett unless the team adds another quarterback to the roster. However, it's very possibly the end of his time as a premier back in the NFL.
