    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper will miss the rest of the season and perhaps part of next season because of a severe injury to his right knee.

    Culpepper sustained damage to the three major ligaments in the knee: the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral.

    Coach Mike Tice said Monday that Culpepper, who was hurt on the final play of the first quarter in Sunday's 38-13 loss at Carolina, will have surgery in the coming weeks once the swelling subsides.

    Recovery from such injuries can take up to a year. "He has a long rehab ahead," Tice said.

    The Vikings (2-5) will use veteran Brad Johnson as their starter, with Shaun Hill moving up to backup status.

    Culpepper, bothered with a sprained MCL and bursitis in his knee this season, was hit low and from the side by Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble while scrambling for a first down.

    Sorry fot hear that.

    With all the problems they are having in Minnesota the organization is having more problems than the New Orleans Saints, and the Vikings haven't even had a hurricane, just DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA.

    I didn't like the Lemon trade too. But e did pickup a 6th round pick which we could use to pickup more depth at the oline or get a backup QB.

    A Rivers trade with Minn for their #1 would be awesome. We could go out and draft the best WR or CB in teh draft.
