Adrian Peterson has sports hernia surgery
Posted by Michael David Smith on February 7, 2013, 12:25 PM EST

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is recovering from surgery.

The Vikings announced on Thursday afternoon that Peterson had successful surgery for a sports hernia, and that there is no reason to be concerned that the injury will be an issue going forward.

“Adrian Peterson had a surgical procedure done today by Dr. William Meyers, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,” the team said in a statement. “Dr. Meyers was able to successfully repair Adrian’s abdominal core muscle injury (sports hernia). We expect a speedy recovery with no long-term concerns.”

A year ago, Peterson was recovering from a much more significant injury to his knee. That recovery went so well that Peterson won the league’s Most Valuable Player award. So a little thing like sports hernia surgery probably won’t slow him down.
