Adrian Peterson Has A Successful First Run

In his continuing rehabilitation from a torn ACL and MCL suffered on Christmas Eve, Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson had his first land-based run of his rehabilitation last week, and the team was quite pleased with the results.

"Did a great job," coach Leslie Frazier said before an Athletes in Action lunch event at the Westin hotel. "Everybody was impressed. Our trainer, Eric Sugarman, was really impressed with his movement and the things he was able to do. He's on schedule. He's doing well."

...

"He said, 'How fast should I go?' We're trying to just judge movement, and he wants to run a 4.3 40. But he has to let that graft continue to heal. He understands that there's a time frame he's working within, and so far, so good."

Hopefully things will continue to progress for the NFL's best running back. He has said on numerous occasions that he wants to be back for Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season, and there's no reason to doubt the guy if that's what he wants to do. Sugarman and company will make sure that he does it right, and after the work they've done with injured Vikings in the past, I don't have any reason to doubt them at this point, either.
