The Vikings confirmed reports that running back Adrian Peterson needed groin surgery, adding that the procedure has taken place.
The team released a statement which said Peterson’s procedure was performed today by Dr. William Meyers at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia, Pa.
“Dr. Meyers was able to successfully repair Adrian’s adductor muscle while also doing a compartmental release,” the statement said. “Adrian is expected to make a full recovery in approximately six weeks.”
That’s good news for Peterson and the Vikings, as he’s struggled with groin issues the last two seasons, and this should have him back in plenty of time to get ready for the coming season.
