Adrian Peterson leaves with leg injury

Adrian Peterson AP

One of the few bright spots for the Vikings this season has been the consistent durability and high-end performance from running back Adrian Peterson.

But Peterson moments ago was helped off the field with a leg injury after being tackled awkwardly against the Raiders.

Peterson lost his shoe before impact, and the leg twisted as he was dragged down by Raiders safety Michael Huff.

Peterson, who had 26 yards on six carries plus a touchdown, currently is being evaluated on the sidelines.  They are working on his ankle.

    Ugly injury. I’m sure he is done for the season.

    Hopefully he is okay, I’m not a Vikings fan but its hard not like a guy like AP

    Thanks, Dr. Premature. I think I’ll wait for the actual report to come out

    Looked nasty and I hope he is okay. They showed him on the sideline moving his foot around so hopefully that is a sign it isn’t too bad.

    Don’t know about the season, but definitely for the day. Couldn’t put weight on it and carted to the training room.

    Damn I just traded for him. Hope he’s ok.

    The replay did not show a terrible injury but a bad ankle sprain means he is out 4 weeks minimum. The Vikings are 1 step closer to getting Matt Kalil in April.

    hope its not season ending

    Didn’t look like a big deal at all. I’m surprised he didn’t get up and walk it off.

    2-14 normally would get you a top 3 pick, but there are so many terrible teams they have to hope they break the top 5.
