Adrian Peterson Needs to be Cautious with ACL
There’s plenty of excitement for fans of the Minnesota Vikings after a video of Adrian Peterson sprinting up a hill with teammate Percy Harvin hit the internet this week–which is impressive for a running back that went under the knife five months ago to repair a torn ACL.
Normally, an ACL injury takes about nine months to heal, but Peterson is obviously ahead of the recovery process if he’s already participating in these types of workouts this early. While this has to be a huge relief for the Vikings considering how valuable Peterson is to the offense, they need to make sure their Pro Bowl running back is extra cautious over the next few months to avoid re-aggravating the injury.
The last thing Minnesota wants to see happen is Peterson push himself too much to the point where his 2012 season is in jeopardy. There’s plenty of reasons to be excited about Peterson’s workout, but let’s wait until training camp before making any assumptions.
