Peterson Undergoes Successful Knee Surgery

Six days after Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee, the perennial Pro Bowler underwent successful surgery, the club announced on Friday.

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

Peterson is facing a recovery time of at least six-to-nine months, which threatens his availability for the start of the 2012 regular season.
