In February, Adrian Peterson said he wanted to be ready to play in Week One after tearing his ACL on Christmas Eve.
Everything appears to be on track so far. Peterson ran for the first time last week since having surgery to repair the injury and Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that the session went very well.
“Did a great job,” Frazier said, via Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500 Radio. “Everybody was impressed. Our trainer, Eric Sugarman, was really impressed with his movement and the things he was able to do. He’s on schedule. He’s doing well.”
Frazier joked that Peterson wanted to run a 4.3 40 while the team just wanted to gauge where he’s at in his rehab schedule. The results showed that he’s on the schedule laid out for him after the surgery, which means that there’s a very good chance Peterson will be in the lineup when the Vikings kick off the 2012 season.
