Adrian Peterson has torn meniscus, timetable for return uncertain

Bradford made the first start of his Minnesota career, and was a huge part of the Vikings' win.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Peterson would have an MRI Monday, but might not miss too much time. "I don't know if he will or not", Zimmer said. "I think they're tough, determined".

The Vikings had another chance in the third quarter to recover a fumble when defensive end Everson Griffen knocked it out of Rodgers' hands. His second touchdown pass of the night is one of the best throws you'll see anywhere.

Another factor in the sense of calm is Peterson's quiet start. "Certainly, he has a nice little connection with (new Vikings quarterback Sam) Bradford, it appears".

Members of the Vikings' offensive line were upset with themselves last week after Peterson's 19-carry, 31-yard start to the season against Tennessee, during which the running back averaged just 1.16 yards per carry before contact, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

"Everything we do is for the team".

He wasn't happy about the production, or lack thereof, by the offense for which he calls the plays.

Peterson has rushed for just 50 yards on 31 carries in the first two weeks. The Vikings running back is reportedly deciding between a partial fix that will cause him to miss four weeks, or a full fix that will require a four month recovery, according Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson. During an interview with KFAN radio in Minneapolis, Zimmer said that despite the injury, he's not going to rule Peterson out for this Sunday's game at Carolina.

Safety Morgan Burnett missed 13 plays over the course of the game and needed medical attention twice for an injured hamstring. After winning his National Football League head coaching debut 34-6 at St. Louis in 2014, Zimmer was hit five days later with the news that Peterson had been indicted on child abuse charges. That's brutal, and confirms the snap judgment that Peterson seems to be getting hit in the backfield an very bad lot this season. Asiata is the team's best pass-blocking back, while McKinnon is the best pass-catching back.

"He's sitting down with the doctors and (athletic trainer Eric Sugarman) and all that stuff", Zimmer said.

"We're not going to overreact". "Fortunately, we were able to make some plays. we were able to get the important ones".

Peterson suffered a devastating left knee injury in 2011 - tearing both his ACL and MCL - only to bounce back and rush for 2,097 yards in the 2012 regular season.

The outcome: Rudolph gives the ball to Bradford to congratulate him, and the robust fans in attendance and watching the TV broadcast (22.8 million people) have a remember-where-you-were-for-the-Vikings-first-touchdown-in-U.S. Bank Stadium-moment. We've been as confident as we need to be and we'll continue doing that through ups and downs. "It's loud, for some reason, in this stadium". However, some USA media gave the design quirk a big thumbs down after Peterson had to run the gauntlet hurt. We could barely hear the snap counts a couple times. Here are a few things we learned after week two.
