Raiders Won’t Have to Contend with Peterson


The Raiders will carry a five-game losing streak with them as they travel to Minnesota to meet the Vikings Sunday.  Today it was announced that Minnesota’s star rookie running back Adrian Peterson will not play after suffering a knee injury in yesterday’s 34-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers.  Peterson tore his lateral collateral ligament and will miss at least this week’s contest, however, according to head coach Brad Childress, Peterson will not require surgery.  Peterson’s injury comes just one week after setting a single-game rushing record with 296 yards against the San Diego Chargers.  He has already racked up 1,081 rushing yards and eight touchdowns halfway through the season.
