Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Peterson had surgery Thursday to repair a torn meniscus, which usually requires 3-to-4 months of recovery. The Vikings haven't officially ruled him out for the season, but if he does actually return, it wouldn't be until the very end of the regular season or the playoffs. Peterson could technically return from injured reserve in Week 12, but it's highly unlikely he'll be ready by that time. Jerick McKinnon is taking over as the starting running back, with Matt Asiata also expected to have a significant role.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Set to miss time due to meniscus injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that with Peterson slated to undergo right knee surgery Thursday, the running back is "likely out until December at least."

Added details regarding Peterson's status/timetable should arrive once coach Mike Zimmer addresses the media, but it's clear that the running back is going to miss a decent chunk of time. In his absence, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata are on track to head the Vikings' backfield.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Expected to have surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson is expected to have surgery Thursday for a torn right lateral meniscus, Larry Fitzgerald Sr. reports.

Fitzgerald, the father of the Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald, is a long-time local Minnesota sports reporter. Peterson will likely miss two to four weeks after the surgery based on estimates of his most likely procedure, but we may not get specific details on the surgery or the extent of the damage. Peterson's return date may be uncertain for awhile as a result. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will likely split the workload at running back with Peterson out.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Could miss multiple games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson is reportedly planning to undergo surgery Thursday morning to repair his torn right meniscus, ESPN.com reports. He has a "bucket handle tear" of the meniscus, which typically has a recovery time of three to four months, the report adds.

Thus far, the Vikings have yet to outline a timetable for Peterson's return to action, but per the report, the running back is expected to miss "multiple games." We'll await further details, especially with regard to mapping out a time-frame for his post-surgery recovery, but as long as Peterson is sidelined, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata are in line to head the Minnesota backfield.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Expected to miss at least Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Peterson (knee) is expected to miss at least this week's game against Carolina, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

The Vikings said Monday that Peterson has a torn meniscus, but this report calls the injury a sprained MCL. Peterson was set to meet with doctors Tuesday about his next course of action. It would seem likely he'll have surgery that's expected to sideline him two to four weeks, but it's possible his injury could be more significant and be out several months. However, this report would appear to indicate his injury is off the lesser variety.
