Gerhart Has Torn MCL

Newly appointed Genreal Manager Rick Spielman and Head Coach Leslie Frazier are underway with their press conferences announcing various offseason plans, but before we dissect their various statements, I wanted to pass along one very important piece of information from the pressers.

Toby Gerhart, contrary to previous reports, actually did tear his MCL in the season finale.

The team will evaluate the running back over the next few weeks to determine whether or not surgery will be required.

Adrian Peterson has already gone under the knife, so the Vikings running game in 2012 is suddenly a very big question mark.
