Vikings RB Adrian Peterson Resting Comfortably Following Surgery

The Vikings were encouraged by the results of running back Adrian Peterson’s surgery today to repair torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, coach Leslie Frazier said in a statement.

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

Peterson underwent the procedure in Birmingham, Alabama, six days after absorbing a hit from Washington Redskins safety DeJon Gomes in the third quarter of the Vikings’ 33-26 win.
