Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told ESPN on Wednesday that he will have surgery Thursday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and he could be out the rest of the season. Peterson was injured late in the third quarter of the Vikings' 17-14 victory over Green Bay on Sunday night in the first regular-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium. He has what he said is a "bucket handle tear." "I'm told that it's a minimum of three, four months out and up to six months usually," Peterson told ESPN.
