Adrian Peterson's road to recovery
By Kevin Seifert
ESPN's Josina Anderson spent some time recently with Minnesota Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson in Houston, where Peterson is conducting part of his rehabilitation from knee surgery. This clip offers some higher-quality footage of his work than I was able to provide via Twitter a few weeks ago.
Asked how likely it is that he will be on the field for the Vikings' Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Peterson said: "Ultimately I'm going to be smart and do what's best for me. I know my body. I know if once that Week 1 comes, regular season, if I'm going to be able to go out and perform the way I know I need to. And I know I'm going to be able to do that."
Earlier: Peterson's career arc isn't lining up with the timing of the Vikings' latest rebuilding project.
