Found January 02, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

Adrian Peterson underwent ACL surgery conducted by Dr. James Andrews on Friday in Birmingham, AL. But the real news was that Peterson was still in the hospital on Saturday night where he celebrated the New Year with this hospital bed photoshoot, complete with Blue Bell ice cream and family.

Look, you guys want shots of ‘hoes couch dancing Purple Jesus in an Atlanta nightclub? Wrong post.

This is all about grindin’ for 2012.

The Vikings PR machine put out the following message:

“We’ve received word that Adrian underwent successful knee surgery with Dr. James Andrews and is now resting comfortably,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said in a statement on the team’s website. “Adrian is in our thoughts, we wish him a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him when he returns to Minnesota.”

Resting comfortably? Dude is throwing ragers in some Birmingham hospital. Just pulling so much nurse tail that he has to cover it up with tweets about having fun with family. Guaranteed this costs him at least 3-4 extra games next year.
