Purple Jesus, Broken

News Item: Adrian Peterson has torn LCL; will miss at least a week

Well, I guess it could be worse; after all, he doesn't need surgery. Last time a major Vikings player injured a knee ligament that I had never heard of- Daunte Culpepper's MCL (along with his ACL and PCL)- it was the end of his career in Minnesota. Thankfully, Peterson's knee is merely injured, as opposed to completely obliterated.

If the Vikings win more than one or two more games this year, I'll be shocked. I only hope Childress' inevitable departure doesn't put the kibosh on my Donovan-in-Purple dreams.
