Minnesota Vikings superstar running back Adrian Peterson may need surgery this offseason. He is scheduled to visit Dr. William Meyers next week to evaluate an ongoing groin issue and decide if surgery is necessary. Dr. Meyers handled Peterson’s sports hernia surgery after last season.
Peterson was inactive for two of the Vikings last three games because of the groin injury and an additional foot injury. The injured groin had an impact on his success this year, finishing with only 1,266 rushing yards this season in contrast to his 2,097 yard season previously.
Despite this situation, Peterson should be ready to roll for next season. He will miss the Pro Bowl and instead focus on getting healthy and ready for next year.
