Vikings place CB Patrick Peterson on injured reserve

The Minnesota Vikings placed eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson on injured reserve Monday with a hamstring issue.

Peterson will miss the team’s next three games as a result of the move, but the injury is not expected to be season-ending. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed the hamstring injury Monday.

Peterson dealt with what was labeled as cramping issues during the fourth quarter of the Vikings’ 34-28 overtime victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. He was replaced by Cameron Dantzler.

“Patrick has played really well and we’ll miss him for sure,” Zimmer said. “But Dantzler has done decent and so has (Bashaud) Breeland.”

Peterson, 31, recorded 13 tackles and two passes defensed in six games this season, his first with Minnesota.

Peterson has 512 tackles, 28 interceptions and 12 fumble recoveries in 160 career starts with the Arizona Cardinals and Vikings.

The Vikings also added tackle Blake Brandel from the practice squad.
