    The Minnesota Vikings are preparing as if running back Adrian Peterson will miss this weeks game with the knee injury he suffered on Sunday, a league source told ESPNs Ed Werder on Wednesday.Peterson has been provided with multiple options about how to treat what coach Mike Zimmer said Monday was a torn meniscus and is deliberating how to proceed. The running back is waiting to hear back from Dr. James Andrews, who performed extensive surgery on Petersons knee in 2011, before he makes a decision, a source told ESPNs Ben Goessling.Surgery on a torn meniscus is not uncommon, and the recovery time can be anywhere from one week to three to four weeks depending on the location and severity of the tear.Peterson slightly twisted his knee at the end of a 5-yard run. His right foot was briefly stuck under the upper leg of Kyler Fackrell as the Packers linebacker brought him to the ground. Peterson left with 3:32 to play in the third quarter.He hobbled off the field with the assistance of athletic trainers. After being examined on the sideline, Peterson hopped through a field-level club at the teams new stadium toward the Vikings locker room.Upon arriving in the locker room, Peterson was quickly ruled out.He was later seen using crutches with a large black brace around the knee.The 2015 NFL rushing leader, who had just 19 carries for 31 yards in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, was injured on his longest run of the night.He had gained only 19 yards on 12 carries, although his presence had helped Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford hit Stefon Diggs on a pair of long strikes when the Packers were loading up to stop Peterson.Peterson suffered a devastating left knee injury in 2011 -- tearing both his ACL and MCL -- only to bounce back and rush for 2,097 yards in the 2012 regular season.If Peterson were unable to play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, the Vikings could turn to Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon, who combined to run for 1,108 yards in 2014 while Peterson missed 15 games because of NFL discipline.I have a lot of confidence in those two guys, Zimmer said Monday. Theyre both different types of runners, but I think the combination of the two can help us.The injury to Peterson is the latest blow to the Vikings. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater?tore multiple knee ligaments on Aug. 30, and the team started the season with two different quarterbacks after trading for Bradford on Sept. 3. The Vikings, though, are 2-0 and in sole possession of first place in the NFC North.Everything we do is for the team. Were not going to be the only team to have injuries, Zimmer said. So were going to keep plugging away. Philipp Grubauer Jersey . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Yvon Labre Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.cheapcapitalschinajerseys.com/ . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. Matt Niskanen Jersey . It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. Christian Djoos Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. BALTIMORE -- A poor start by Yovani Gallardo and an abundance of missed scoring opportunities cost the Baltimore Orioles a chance to enhance their position in the playoff picture.Evan Longoria homered and drove in five runs, and the last-place Tampa Bay Rays again played the spoilers role in a 7-6 victory over the Orioles on Thursday night.Baltimore dropped two games behind AL East-leading Boston and dripped into a tie with Toronto for the two AL wild cards after the Blue Jays beat the Los Angeles Angels later Thursday.Gallardo (5-8) gave up six runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings.When Orioles manager Buck Showalter emerged from the dugout to pull Gallardo in the fourth, many of the hometown fans cheered. They subsequently booed the right-hander as he walked toward the dugout.In spite of this, Baltimore had runners on the corners with one out in the ninth inning before Alex Colome struck out major league home run leader Mark Trumbo and slugger Chris Davis to earn his 33rd save.Its a tough loss because we fought back and had a chance there at the end, catcher Matt Wieters said.Baltimore went 3 for 15 with runners in scoring position.Tampa Bay has won three straight, including the last two of a three-game series in Toronto. The Rays also defeated the wild-card contending Yankees on Sunday.Its fun that we are playing competitive baseball, Longoria said. Its one thing to go out in a great environment against a team that is a playoff contender, but to be in the game and winning games is the best thing about it.Longoria hit his career high-tying 33rd homer with two on in the first inning and added a two-run single in the fourth to increase his team-high RBI total to 91.Coming off a 6-3 road trip culminated with two successive wins in Boston, the Orioles fell flat against a team they dominated for much of the season. Baltimore is now 11-5 against Tampa Bay, 6-1 at home.First game back home, you obviously want to get home and start off on a good note, Gallardo said. Ive been feeling good my past few starts, and I was just a little off.Althoough the temperature was a comfortable 72 degrees and the Orioles are in the midst of a playoff push, the game attracted an announced crowd of only 19,233.ddddddddddddongoria put the Rays up 3-0 before Gallardo got an out.
