Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was carted off the field with a sprained foot in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.
Peterson got hurt during a sideline tackle by Ravens rookie linebacker Arthur Brown and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He'll undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday morning, according to Vikings coach Leslie Frazier.
"Adrian Peterson, I wish him a speedy recovery," Ravens running back Ray Rice said. "I'm not sure the extent of the injury, but he is somebody I look to for inspiration."
Peterson, the NFL's leading rusher coming into Sunday with 1,208 yards and 10 touchdown runs, was limited to 13 yards on seven carries, a 1.9 average per run, with a long run of 4 yards.
With Peterson sidelined, Toby Gerhart took over as the primary running back for the Vikings.
