Adrian Peterson had surgery Thursday morning to repair the meniscus in his right knee. The Vikings running back suffered the tear during Sunday’s 17-14 victory over the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The surgery was performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics by team doctor Chris Larson. The Vikings issued a statement saying the lateral meniscus repair was successful and that “there were no additional injuries or issues noted in or surrounding the knee joint during the surgical procedure.”
The statement did not give a timetable for Peterson’s return, but said the rehabilitation process will begin immediately.
The team will play at Charlotte on Sunday without Peterson and left tackle Matt Kalil, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
