Adrian Peterson Injury Not Completely Healed, But Leg Is 'Getting Better'

It hasn't seemed like Adrian Peterson is feeling the effects of the season-ending knee injury he suffered last year, but the Minnesota Vikings running back said on Thursday that he still isn't completely healthy. He's close enough, though, and says he's getting better each week.

Peterson told Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press that he's getting closer to where he wants to be, but he's not there quite yet:

"Each week I feel myself improving; the leg is getting stronger and more stable,. The body's feeling good, and I'll be ready to roll."

It'll be interesting to see if Peterson ever thinks he's back to his pre-injury condition considering the extent of the injury, but even 80 percent of All Day isn't a bad thing.
