Viking’s Peterson Ready After His Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction?

With this week’s kickoff of the NFL season, Fantasy Football team owners everywhere are wondering how much playing time the Minnesota Viking’s star running back, Adrian Peterson, will get after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last season. No doubt about it…Peterson is a top-notch athlete, and he has worked extremely hard in physical therapy to get ready for this year’s season. While Peterson says he feels ready physically and mentally, all indications are that his participation in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaquars will be a game-time decision.
