Adrian Peterson 'Ahead of Schedule', Runs Sprints at Vikings Practice

Former Sooner Adrian Peterson has taken another step in his recovery from knee surgery.

The star running back, who had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in late September, was spotted running short sprints while his Vikings teammates practiced at Winter Park this morning. Head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman watched closely before the two walked inside toward the locker room.

Tuesday was not the first day Peterson had resumed running, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Asked when Peterson was healthy enough to start running again, Zimmer said “I don’t know, I’m not in charge of the rehab.

“He’s doing good. He’s doing good,” Zimmer added. “He’s probably ahead of schedule, I guess. I don’t know.”

Since Peterson was hurt during the Week 2 win against the Packers and underwent knee surgery on Sept. 22, the Vikings had been holding out hope that the reigning NFL rushing champion could return in December. There are now five games left for the Vikings, who have lost five out of six. (Star-Tribune)
