The Vikings placed running back Adrian Peterson on injured reserve Monday. The all-pro is expected to miss eight-to-nine months after tearing his ACL and MCL in his left knee during the third quarter of Saturday's win over the Redskins. Running back Caleb King was activated from the practice squad, along with tight end Mickey Shuler.
