He has only 50 yards on 31 attempts this season. According to reports from ESPN's Josina Anderson, running back Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery this Thursday to fix his torn meniscus.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer will address the media later Wednesday morning. "It could be season-ending". "It could be season ending". It could be three or four weeks.

The last time Peterson was out of the lineup due to his exile from child-abuse allegations, McKinnon ran for 538 yards at a 4.8 yards per clip, although he did suffer a back injury that cut short his season, so durability is a concern.

"I think we went into the season with higher expectations than being 0-2, obviously". I think if you go back past year and look at the things that happened you know we're not the type of team that's going to sit back and cry about what's happening. "We're going to continue to stay that way".

Looking out for his future, the 31-year-old player made a decision to go with the procedure for obvious reasons. He hasn't officially been listed as out, but he is not practicing.

Charles has not played since Week 5 last season, when he tore the ACL in his right knee.
