VIDEO: Toby Gerhart Gets The Longest Run Of His Career

The Vikings have lost Adrian Peterson for the season. . .and maybe longer. . .after a nasty leg injury, but his replacement has not been deterred.

Check out the career-long 67-yard run by Toby Gerhart on Minnesota's most recent possession.

Gerhart isn't necessarily known for his speed or anything like that, and it looked like the Redskins' defense might have been taking a breather knowing that Adrian Peterson was not lined up in the backfield.

Whatever the reason was, it set up a 9-yard touchdown run for Joe Webb two plays later, and it gave the Vikings a 17-13 lead. . .temporarily. The Redskins have just answered with another score, and we'll have all of the details on that one for you momentarily.
