Adrian Peterson is Cleared to Play

By | Posted Friday, May 18

Vikings draft pick Adrian Peterson will not need to undergo collar bone surgery. Peterson broke his collarbone in a game against Iowa State on October 14th. He missed the final seven games of the regular season before returning to play in the Fiesta Bowl against Boise State. The collarbone was broken again early in the bowl game on a tackle in the backfield, but Peterson played through the pain and did not report the injury until an examination on January 30th, Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman said.

Despite the health questions that surrounded Adrian Peterson on draft day, the Minnesota Vikings football franchise simply couldn't pass up the chance to add a player with his game-breaking skills. "We felt very confident it would be a non-issue," Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman said. Let's hope the Minnesota Viking front office is right and that Adrian Peterson will be a force to be reckoned with right out of the shoot. Let's go Vikings!
