The 2013 ESPY Awards are this week, and Adrian Peterson is in the running for a few different awards; including Best Male Athlete and Best Comeback. As AP continues his campaign for the awards, he and blocker Matt Kalil appeared in a new commercial for the award ceremony.
In a vote for who will grace the cover of the 25th anniversary edition of the Madden NFL video game franchise, a classic name beat out Adrian Peterson. In resilient AP fashion, Peterson will still appear on some covers of this year's Madden release; even after coming in second place in voting.
Minnesota Vikings rusher and fan favorite Adrian Peterson appeared on a sports talk show yesterday, discussing topics like the his return from the devastating knee injury. During the interview, Adrian was asked about outspoken former Viking Chris Kluwe, when he made a remark some are viewing as controversial.
Rebuilt knee? No problem! Abdominal injury in December that was bad enough to require surgery? Just give him the ball! Adrian Peterson's amazing season now seems even more improbable as the team announced that he did need surgery to help a sports hernia.
Many players suffer injuries like the one Adrian Peterson suffered on December 24, 2011, never returning to their pre-injury form. Peterson took his injury in stride, proving critics wrong and coming in under 10 yards away from claiming the single-season rushing record. His awe-inspring performance earned him a few accolades including MVP and other offensive honors.
The 2012 season for the Minnesota Vikings was an interesting ride for fans. Returning to the field with several young players, relying heavily on rookies in key positions, and hoping to improve from a 3-13 season the year before; expectations were low.
When Border Battle II ended on Sunday, Vikings fans everywhere had mixed emotions about the result. People were certainly elated about earning a spot in the playoffs, but it was frustrating watching Adrian Peterson rush for 199 yards, falling just 9 yards short of beating Eric Dickerson's NFL single-season rushing record. Some are saying there is still a chance he got the record.
After a devastating injury on Christmas Eve in the 2011 NFL season; "incredible" is the only word that seems to fit Adrian Peterson, his recovery, and his 2012 performance. Peterson continues to inch closer to breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season NFL rushing record and keeps breaking personal and team records as he shows the world that an injury that has ended some careers will not slow him down.
Last Sunday, the story broke that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed the team bus to Soldier Field as the team prepared to play the Chicago Bears. He ultimately had to take a cab to the game and while he arrived in plenty of time for the kickoff, he was late to join his team and this did not please head coach Leslie Frazier at all. Four days after this all happened, Peterson provided his reason for being late.
