Adrian Peterson is tentatively scheduled to resume running by the end of February which is amazing considering that he’s coming off of ACL and MCL surgery.
“I’m definitely making improvement. I’m starting to get my muscle tone and strength back into the legs,” Peterson said on Friday, via Scout.com. “I’m happy with the progress I’ve made so far. I’m extremely happy.”
“He’s [Peterson’s physical theripist] making sure I’m doing the right things. It feels strong, but he doesn’t want me to push it too much,” said Peterson.
This is great news for the Vikings as it very well could have been a debilitating injury for him.
Peterson has 6752 career rushing yards, and the injury riddled 2011 was the first season he did not reach 1,000 yards, although he did have 970. He has 67 total touchdowns in his career, 23 more touchdowns than Brett Favre had in his celebrated Vikings career.
