Peterson and Walker to Miss Spring Practice

Surgery for Both stars: Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson will miss spring practice after having surgery on his left shoulder Monday. The procedure was successful, the Sooners sports information department confirmed to ESPN.
Peterson, the Heisman runner-up, dislocated the shoulder in fall practice and again during the Sooners' game against Texas A&M on Nov. 6. "It's a common surgery in football and a number of players have had the procedure done and returned to perform at a very high level," Oklahoma trainer Scott Anderson said. Starting cornerback Marcus Walker, another freshman, had similar reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder. (ESPN)
