RB Adrian Peterson Scheduled To Begin Running

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is scheduled to start running this week as part of his rehabilitation from ACL surgery, according to the Viking Update.

“This is the beginning stages of running,” Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier told 1500 ESPN.  “So, we’ll have a better gauge in another, let’s say, one or two weeks as to what kind of progress he’s going to make.  But we’ve got to determine if he’s going to have any swelling after the first time he runs, when he begins cutting and turning and twisting.”

Peterson sustained the injury in his left knee on Dec. 24 against the Washington Redskins.  His prognosis determined he would have to undergo rehabilitation for about 8-9 months.  Having surgery back on Dec. 30, Peterson seems to be right on schedule.

The Vikings are optimistic that Peterson will be available at the start of the regular season; however, it still may be too early to tell.  After completing Phase 4 of rehabilitation by running on land, team doctors will have a better idea of the running back’s chances of playing this upcoming season.
