Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl fullback Jerome Felton underwent an emergency appendectomy today.

The procedure will sidelined Felton for the remainder of the preseason following a successful surgery.

Luckily, the appendix didn't burst.

Felton blocked for Adrian Peterson last season as he rushed for 2,097 yards, the second-highest single-season rushing total in NFL history.

"Thanks for the well wishes everybody, I'll b fine, surgery went great and I'll b out there soon! #SkolVikings," Felton wrote on his Twitter account.
