Adrian Peterson done with surgery

"We’ve received word that Adrian underwent successful knee surgery with Dr. James Andrews and is now resting comfortably. Adrian is in our thoughts, we wish him a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him when he returns to Minnesota."

-Leslie Frazier

This is great news for all Viking fans, although I'm sure we expected nothing less from Dr. Andrews (who has lived up to the hype once again)

There has been a lot of speculation as to when he will be able to come back. Some, like Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman, believe the man known as Purple Jesus will be 100% by game one next year. Others have compared Peterson to players with similar injuries who have taken up to a full year to recover. Much has been made of the determination of Adrian, and I have no doubt that he will give full effort to rehabbing, however "special DNA" has been chalked up as something Peterson has over players who shared a similar injury. That is something I don't buy into, if Peterson returns for the start of our 2012 season; it will be because of his dedication to greatness, not some freak gene.

Anyways regardless of how it happens, I wish him a speedy recovery. He is such a vital part of our team it could be another long season without him for even part of it
