Vikings CB Peterson Injures Hamstring, Out At Least 3 Games
MINNEAPOLIS -- AP -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson has been placed on injured reserve. He hurt his hamstring against Carolina and must miss a minimum of three games. The injury is not believed to be season-ending. That means Peterson is expected to return at some point during the second half of the schedule.
The Vikings are 3-3 entering their bye week. Peterson was hurt Sunday on the first play of the game-tying touchdown drive by the Panthers. He was covering D.J. Moore on a deep pass that fell incomplete. Peterson is in his first year with the Vikings.
