Adrian Peterson (knee) scheduled for MRI

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson might be joining QB Teddy Bridgewater on the sideline for a while depending on what they find out today on his injured right knee.

Peterson exited Sunday’s night win against Green Bay late in the third quarter and did not return. Before the injury, he wasn’t quite himself, with only a pedestrian 26 yards on 14 carriers.
