Adrian Peterson Injury Update: Vikings Back Running In Water

Adrian Peterson won't be back on a football field any time soon, but his recovery from a late season torn ACL is starting to pick up.

After Peterson said that he wanted to start running again two weeks ago, coach Leslie Frazier raised concerns at the combine about his treatment being a bit rushed and told Peterson not to rush it. Twincities.com reports that instead of just running on the ground, Peterson has instead switched over to doing some running in the water, a much easier exercise on the legs.

Peterson is currently spending the week in Minnesota as his rehab continues to try and get himself back in shape for the 2012 season. If he doesn't rush things with his recovery, he won't be back for the start of the season but is far more likely to be back to his old, dominant self when he does come back.
