EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will miss Sunday's game against Oakland with a torn ligament in his right knee, coach Brad Childress said Monday.
Childress said Peterson tore his lateral collateral ligament in the Vikings' 34-0 loss to Green Bay. Peterson will not require surgery, Childress said.
``The good news is that the knee is otherwise stable and the injury is isolated to that ligament,'' Childress said. ``I'm told that's a good healing ligament.''
Childress said this is not a season-ending injury, but he did not talk about when Peterson might be back.
Peterson was hurt just a week after he set an NFL single-game rushing record with 296 yards in a victory over San Diego.
