    The Adrian Peterson Recovery Thread

    I figured A.P. deserves his own thread. We can post all updates about his recovery in here.

    I just heard Chris Mortenson talking about Peterson. He said Peterson was watching the team do wind sprints and asked trainer Eric Sugarman if he could go run with them. Sugarman said yes and Peterson went out there and beat everybody in 4 straight sprints. Mortenson said that Peterson is expected to be full go for week 1.


    I cant wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and were standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and were all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him hes world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.

    I agree man, A.P. is seriously inhuman. The things this guy can do are amazing. He's beating guys in sprints already and we still have about 3 and a half months till opening day! I wouldn't be surprised if he's ready at some point for training camp. I'll go on record right now and GUARANTEE Peterson is 110% healthy for the Jags.

    As a Sooners fan, I was hoping and praying that he would fall to the Vikings and he did! Adrian Peterson is a class act and one of the best running back in Vikings history besides Chuck Foreman and a future Hall of Famer!

    I hope before its all said and done he gets all the records a running back can have. For sure the 2000+ Marker. We need to build the most amazing run blocking line the sport has ever seen to compliment the most amazing RB the sport has ever seen.

    Not really big news to me, When your ligaments are made of steel all they had to do was weld it back in place.

    Can't wait to see what AP can do behind an improved o-line.

    AP is going to hit it harder than ever this year cause the whole NFL and medical world are all eyes on him and how he is going to recover. There is alot of people that are looking at APs body as almost non-human, no joking.

    If Loadholt can develop into the player he should be, it's looking like our offensive line will become a strength for us. Loadholt has never had much of a problem run blocking so I expect Peterson to see a lot more holes than what he's used to seeing.

    Adrian Peterson: Ill be surprised and disappointed if I miss Week 1
    Four months from the Vikings opener against the Jaguars, running back Adrian Peterson continues to believe hell be on the field.

    Peterson told reporters on Wednesday that his recovery from his torn ACL is progressing well, and he said hell be surprised if he cant play by September.

    I will be very surprised, Peterson said. I have been ahead of the schedule since day one. The staff here in Minnesota, the staff down in Houston, they have been doing a great job of just pushing me and pushing me, but having that limit on it, knowing I want to do this, I just have to play it slow and it will come. From square one I have been ahead of the curve. So, me personally, because thats my goal, I set my goals and expectations high, and that first game against Jacksonville I plan on being back. It will be disappointing if I am not.

    Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman is emphasizing caution in Petersons recovery, and Peterson says he has taken that message to heart and isnt pushing to do too much, too soon.

    But Peterson can already run and is getting in better shape and as the picture here, taken on Wednesday, shows, he can jump.

    I think Im doing pretty good, as far as running, Peterson said. Conditioning-wise I feel like I have a long ways to go, but I am making strides. The biggest hurdle I am trying to jump right now is being explosive, being able to cut like I once did before.

    In four months, Peterson sees himself being able to do everything like he did before.
