Vikings RB Adrian Peterson Has Hernia Surgery

NFL MVP and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson had surgery on Thursday to repair a sports hernia in his abdomen.

The injury that bothered him for much of the last month of the season while he came up just 8 yards short of Eric Dickerson‘s single-season rushing record.

In the final couple of weeks of the season, Peterson stated that he played through an abdominal injury, but never let on about the amount of pain that he was in.

On Thursday, the Vikings disclosed he had undergone surgery in Philadelphia to repair the hernia.

“We expect a speedy recovery with no long-term concerns,” the team said in a statement on its website.

This past season Peterson ran for 2,097 yards, helped the Vikings into the postseason, and was selected the league’s offensive player of the year in a season in which he scored 12 touchdowns, had eight runs of 40 yards or more and averaged 6.0 yards per carry.
