That was a good solid hit. Honestly they have nothing to play for and he was still banged up... I would have sat him for the rest of the year. Gerhart has been playing well.

Dirty a** Redskins!

All joking aside. That injury looked horrible.
I doubt he will ever be the same RB.
This is why I don't believe in paying RBs franchise $ these days.

Without AP the Vikings will be lucky to win 2 or 3 games

This just in: even with AP they are a 2-3 win team.

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities' Tom Pelissero reports that the Vikings fear Adrian Peterson tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee Saturday.

Pelissero also confirms that such an injury would "probably" jeopardize Peterson's availability for the start of next season. Typically, doctors are forced to wait several weeks and sometimes months for the MCL to heal before repairing the ACL with reconstructive surgery. Peterson's MRI is scheduled for tonight, on the heels of the Vikings' flight home from D.C.

Too bad for him. He's a hell of a running back. Or at least he was.

Great.

Now we can't tackle him by the ankle, or the leg!
