Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has dealt with groin injuries in each of the last two seasons.

Now it appears Peterson will finally have surgery to address the issue.

According to Josina Anderson of, Peterson has elected to undergo surgery on his groin in the near future.

Peterson was scheduled to meet with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia to ultimately determine whether surgery was necessary. Meyers performed hernia surgery on Peterson after the 2012 season.

The surgery likely wouldn’t have any affect on Peterson’s availability for the start of training camp next season.

Peterson missed a pair of games in December 2013 (he also had a foot injury), but Peterson still rushed for 1,266 yards.

    So he averaged about 90 yards a game, which isn’t great. I know the team was a hot mess but they really need to try and bring Gerhart back and utilize him in tandem with AP a bit more. As we saw, the NFC North is wide open.

    Damn shame AP is being wasted. No offense Vik fans, but he deserves a better compliment of players around him.
