Rookie Adrian Peterson Out With Injury

Minnesota's rookie running back Adrian Peterson will miss this Sunday's game with Oakland because of a torn ligament in his right knee. Peterson, who set the NFL single-game rushing record two weeks ago, suffered the injury during yesterday's 34-0 loss to Green Bay.

Vikings coach Brad Childress says the injury is not season-ending.
