Adrian Peterson hurt

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson left Saturday’s game against the Washington Redskins early in the third quarter with a knee injury.

The Redskins held Peterson to 23 yards and 10 carries in the first half. He had 12 carries for 38 yards when he left the game. He also had a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Peterson came into Saturday’s game rushing.
