Adrian Peterson expected to need 4-6 weeks for rehab after surgery

The Minnesota Vikings will be without running back Adrian Peterson for the next month as he rehabs from groin surgery. Peterson needed to undergo groin surgery on Thursday morning and as a result, he’ll be missing the next 4-6 weeks while he rehabs.

This really isn’t that big of a deal for the Vikings, as they won’t be doing much other than trying to build their new team up over the next 4-6 weeks. Mike Zimmer can probably rest easier at night knowing that his franchise running back has had groin surgery as soon as possible, putting Peterson well on track to start the first week of the season next year.

Unlike the last time Peterson had offseason surgery, there is hardly any drama attached to the groin procedure. Peterson’s ACL caused a lot of concern among Vikings fans, and he responded with a newer record-breaking MVP season.
