Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had surgery this morning to repair a late-season injury that didn’t derail him from winning the MVP award.
The club announced that Peterson had surgery to repair an abdominal core muscle injury, also known as a sports hernia. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia.
“We expect a speedy recovery with no long-term concerns,” the Vikings said in the release.
Peterson made a remarkable recovery from a torn ACL last year to shock virtually everyone. Like the team said, this should be a much easier to return from.
