Peterson “Feeling Pretty Good” After Surgery


Dec 8, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (28) lays on the ground after being injured against the Baltimore Ravens at M

Adrian Peterson had surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday to fix a problem with his groin.  It was announced that the recovery time for the procedure would be approximately four to six weeks.  But Vikings fans are well aware of Peterson’s freakish ability to heal from injury and despite it only being four days since the surgery, he said he is “actually feeling pretty good, considering I just had surgery Thursday”.

This should have nearly no impact on his offseason workouts.  He usually starts around the middle of March, but isn’t used to not being able to work out while recovering from the surgery.

“I like to try to keep the body tuned up,” Peterson said. “That’s the hardest thing as I’m sitting here, is to really drop off and not do nothing for a long period of time and then just try to jump back into it.”

Fans shouldn’t worry though.  Peterson is one of the hardest working players in the league and he is always trying to get better.  As soon as he is able and cleared, there is little doubt that he will be back to working hard to stay the best running back in the NFL.
