I realize football is a ways away, but with the draft approaching it’s a hot topic.  For Minnesota Vikings fans, Adrian Peterson’s knee will now always be a hot topic because he is such a crucial part of the any success the team may have.  You take him out of the mix and you have, umm..give me a minute….Okay, you have Percy Harvin but nobody fears the Vikings offense at all without Peterson in there.

For us in the Northland, it’s a road trip to see this team in person so we at least want think we have a chance.  With that said, the news regarding Adrian Peterson is met with guarded enthusiasm.

 

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier delivered the update Wednesday with obvious enthusiasm. Adrian Peterson has hit the ground running.

Peterson has returned to the Twin Cities this week to begin the next phase of his knee rehabilitation. A little more than 12 weeks since having surgery to repair torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, the star running back has been cleared to try running on land again.

Peterson is doing so this week under the watchful eye of head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman at Winter Park.

Frazier’s assessment nearly three months into Peterson’s rehab? Yes, it’s still early. But so far, so good.

“Everything he’s done up to this point has been very good,” Frazier said. “So we’re hoping once he starts running he’ll stay on course as well.”
