Vikings’ Adrian Peterson practicing again after surgery


Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson saw his season end early with a groin injury that required surgery. Known for being a quick healer, Peterson is already healed and back at practice according to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.

“Adrian [Peterson] is doing fantastic, he practiced yesterday. He’s been here, been in good spirits and the rest of the guys are doing well,” Zimmer said, via 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.

Peterson is looking to get back on track as possibly the only real featured back left in the league. NFL legend Jim Brown said recently that he thinks Peterson has a chance at finishing his career as the all-time leader in rushing, just one season removed from a 2,000 yard campaign.

“If he wants that and he dedicates himself and he has good fortune, that’s a great possibility,” Brown told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Friday. “I think if he sets his goals and he understands his circumstances and he knows what it takes, that he can be successful. I’m not saying that he will break the record, I’m just saying it’s a possibility.”
