Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia, and the 2012 NFL MVP described the injury and the pain it caused this season to Josina Anderson of ESPN. Peterson initially suffered the injury during a Week 10 matchup against the Detroit Lions. He then received a cortisone shot to dull the pain prior to suiting up against the Green Bay Packers three weeks later, and he characterized the pain as a 10 on a 1-to-10 scale during Minnesota’s Week 16 contest against the Houston Texans. Even after the injury, Peterson rushed for 1,068 yards in his seven remaining games. Despite his amazing performances late in the season, he told Anderson that the injury impacted his play. He wasn’t 100 percent, and he said his performances would have been better without the injury. The procedure carries with it a three- to four-week recovery period, so Peterson is expected to be ready to go when offseason activities begin.
