Vikings’ Peterson To Have MRI On Sprained Knee

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was scheduled for an MRI late Saturday after taking a direct hit to his left knee in Saturday’s 33-26 win over the Washington Redskins.

Coach Leslie Frazier said Peterson had a sprained knee and would be evaluated after the team returned to Minnesota.

Peterson said he knew “it was something bad” the moment he was hit and that he was in “severe pain” on he lay on the field. He was hurt on a tackle by Redskins safety DeJon Gomes on a 3-yard gain on the first offensive play of the second half.

On the next play, Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was hurt when sacked by Adam Carriker and London Fletcher. Frazier said Ponder had “concussion-like symptoms” and will be reevaluated in the coming days.

    maybe it was the camera angle but to me it looks more than sprained, it looks like he broke it.
