The Vikings made the announcement on their website and say they "expect a speedy recovery with no long-term concerns." Peterson had the procedure in Philadelphia.
Analysis: Peterson, who also was named offensive player of the year after returning from a torn ACL to rush for 2,097 yards, was bothered by an abdominal injury for the last month of the season. He sat out the fourth quarter against Houston in December, which may have kept him from breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record.
|Feb. 2 4:56 PM PT5:56 PM MT6:56 PM CT7:56 PM ET0:56 GMT8:56 AM 北京时间5:56 PM MST7:56 PM EST6:56 PM CT4:56 UAE (+1)19:56 22:56 - Peterson's sensational season following major knee surgery has earned him The Associated Press 2012 NFL Most Valuable Player Award.
Analysis: Earlier Saturday, Peterson won Offensive Player of the Year. The Minnesota Vikings running back finished with 2,019 yards, a mere 9 yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's rushing record. Peterson beat out Peyton Manning, who in his first season as Denver's quarterback contended for a fifth MVP trophy. Manning's four are a record. Peterson received 30 1-2 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. Manning got the other 19 1-2 votes.
|Jan. 12 7:09 AM PT8:09 AM MT9:09 AM CT10:09 AM ET15:09 GMT11:09 PM 北京时间8:09 AM MST10:09 AM EST9:09 AM CT19:09 UAE10:09 13:09 - Peterson was an unanimous choice for The Associated Press All-Pro team announced Saturday.
Analysis: Peterson, who came within 9 yards of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, is a three-time All-Pro.
|Jan. 7 1:56 PM PT2:56 PM MT3:56 PM CT4:56 PM ET21:56 GMT5:56 AM 北京时间2:56 PM MST4:56 PM EST3:56 PM CT1:56 UAE (+1)16:56 19:56 - Peterson isn't about to let up after his awe-inspiring season for the Minnesota Vikings. After rushing for 2,097 yards and nearly breaking the NFL record just one year after reconstructive surgery on his left knee, Peterson is planning on a similarly intense offseason regimen.
Analysis: Peterson said Monday as the Vikings cleared out their lockers that he wants to get as many teammates as he can to join him for his workouts. The Vikings lost in Green Bay to the Packers in the NFC playoffs on Saturday to finish 10-7, a seven-win improvement from last year. Peterson said he'll take some time to rest his body, but not much. He said his rehabilitation program showed him the benefit of starting preseason training early.
|Jan. 6 8:58 AM PT9:58 AM MT10:58 AM CT11:58 AM ET16:58 GMT12:58 AM 北京时间9:58 AM MST11:58 AM EST10:58 AM CT20:58 UAE11:58 14:58 - Peterson was held to 99 yards in Saturday's playoff loss - an improvement after gaining 199 and 210 in the first two games against Green Bay.
Analysis: It was only the second time in the last 11 games that he was held below 100 yards.
|Dec. 31 8:17 PM PT9:17 PM MT10:17 PM CT11:17 PM ET4:17 GMT12:17 AM 北京时间9:17 PM MST11:17 PM EST10:17 PM CT8:17 UAE23:17 2:17 - Peterson became the seventh player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, plowing through the Green Bay Packers for a 20-yard gain that put him over the top in the third quarter Sunday. He finished with 199 yards and a touchdown in the 37-34 victory, leaving him nine yards shy of breaking Dickerson's single-season record.
Analysis: Peterson needed 208 yards when the day began to break Dickerson's record of 2,105 yards set in 1984. His 26-yard run late in the fourth quarter set up Blair Walsh's winning field goal, a kick that clinched a playoff berth for the Vikings. He'll have to settle for the second-best total - 2,097 yards - and a trip to Lambeau Field for a playoff rematch next Saturday night.
|Dec. 30 2:18 PM PT3:18 PM MT4:18 PM CT5:18 PM ET22:18 GMT6:18 AM 北京时间3:18 PM MST5:18 PM EST4:18 PM CT2:18 UAE (+1)17:18 20:18 - Peterson has become the seventh running back in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season.
Analysis: Peterson rushed into history in the third quarter with a 20-yard run, giving him 2,009 on the season.
|Dec. 27 3:15 PM PT4:15 PM MT5:15 PM CT6:15 PM ET23:15 GMT7:15 AM 北京时间4:15 PM MST6:15 PM EST5:15 PM CT3:15 UAE (+1)18:15 21:15 - Peterson was held out for a second straight day, but the Vikings have been giving the star running back days off during the week as a matter of routine throughout the second half of the season.
Analysis: Peterson says his sore abdomen will not limit him in the season finale against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
|Dec. 24 11:56 AM PT12:56 PM MT1:56 PM CT2:56 PM ET19:56 GMT3:56 AM 北京时间12:56 PM MST2:56 PM EST1:56 PM CT23:56 UAE14:56 17:56 - Peterson rushed for 86 yards, falling far short of the 2,000-yard mark, yet helped the Vikings' postseason chances with a 23-6 upset of the Texans on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson needs 208 yards to break the NFL single-season rushing record held by Eric Dickerson. Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier said he took Peterson out late as a precaution because he has a sore abdomen.
|Dec. 23 4:37 PM PT5:37 PM MT6:37 PM CT7:37 PM ET0:37 GMT8:37 AM 北京时间5:37 PM MST7:37 PM EST6:37 PM CT4:37 UAE (+1)19:37 22:37 - Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier said he took Peterson out late in the Vikings' win over the Texans on Sunday as a precaution because he has a sore abdomen.
Analysis: Peterson has 1,898 this season and needs 208 yards to break the NFL single-season rushing record held by Eric Dickerson.
|Dec. 17 12:50 PM PT1:50 PM MT2:50 PM CT3:50 PM ET20:50 GMT4:50 AM 北京时间1:50 PM MST3:50 PM EST2:50 PM CT0:50 UAE (+1)15:50 18:50 - Peterson ran for 212 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries against the Rams on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson's fourth career 200-yard game - and second of the season - increased his season total to 1,812 yards, a new personal best. He needs 294 yards in his final two games to surpass Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record of 2,105 rushing yards set in 1984.
|Dec. 10 1:03 PM PT2:03 PM MT3:03 PM CT4:03 PM ET21:03 GMT5:03 AM 北京时间2:03 PM MST4:03 PM EST3:03 PM CT1:03 UAE (+1)16:03 19:03 - Peterson ran a career-high 31 times for 154 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday against Chicago.
Analysis: Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Peterson may have already run away with his second career rushing title. His 1,600 yards lead the NFL and the next closest player is Marshawn Lynch (1,266).
|Dec. 3 1:07 PM PT2:07 PM MT3:07 PM CT4:07 PM ET21:07 GMT5:07 AM 北京时间2:07 PM MST4:07 PM EST3:07 PM CT1:07 UAE (+1)16:07 19:07 - Peterson needed only 21 carries to run for 210 yards and a touchdown against the Packers on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson's dominant performance was the third-highest single-game rushing total of his career. His 82-yard touchdown run was a career long.
|Nov. 25 2:21 PM PT3:21 PM MT4:21 PM CT5:21 PM ET22:21 GMT6:21 AM 北京时间3:21 PM MST5:21 PM EST4:21 PM CT2:21 UAE (+1)17:21 20:21 - Peterson tied Robert Smith's club record with a 100-yard performance for the fifth straight game but he also lost two fumbles in the Minnesota Vikings' 28-10 loss in Chicago on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson finished with 108 yards on 18 carries despite gaining only 25 in the first half. He has 737 of his NFL-best 1,236 yards over the past five games.
|Nov. 13 11:54 AM PT12:54 PM MT1:54 PM CT2:54 PM ET19:54 GMT3:54 AM 北京时间12:54 PM MST2:54 PM EST1:54 PM CT23:54 UAE14:54 17:54 - A grand jury in Houston has dismissed a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson after hearing from the four-time Pro Bowl running back and other witnesses.
Analysis: Derek Hollingsworth, one of Peterson's attorneys, said Tuesday the case stemming from Peterson's July 7 arrest outside a night club is expected to be formally dropped on Wednesday. Peterson was due in court for a pretrial hearing on Thursday before Judge Natalie Fleming. Hollingsworth said Peterson testified before the grand jury on Tuesday, two days after he rushed for 171 yards on the Vikings' 34-24 win over Detroit. Peterson is the NFL's leading rusher this season.
|Nov. 12 2:08 PM PT3:08 PM MT4:08 PM CT5:08 PM ET22:08 GMT6:08 AM 北京时间3:08 PM MST5:08 PM EST4:08 PM CT2:08 UAE (+1)17:08 20:08 - Peterson ran for 171 yards and a touchdowns during Sunday's 34-24 win over Detroit.
Analysis: Peterson has proven nearly unstoppable over the last four weeks, rushing for a combined 629 yards and five TDs. With a bye in Week 11, Peterson figures to be extra fresh for the stretch run.
|Nov. 5 1:25 PM PT2:25 PM MT3:25 PM CT4:25 PM ET21:25 GMT5:25 AM 北京时间2:25 PM MST4:25 PM EST3:25 PM CT1:25 UAE (+1)16:25 19:25 - Peterson rushed for 182 yards and two TDs on Sunday in a 30-20 loss to Seattle.
Analysis: Peterson rushed for 144 yards in the first half alone, the most in the first-half of any game in his career, including his NFL record 296 yards rushing against San Diego in 2007.
|Oct. 26 5:19 AM PT6:19 AM MT7:19 AM CT8:19 AM ET12:19 GMT8:19 PM 北京时间5:19 AM MST7:19 AM EST7:19 AM CT16:19 UAE8:19 10:19 - Peterson finished with 123 yards on 15 carries in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Peterson had a season-long 64-yard run for a score that brought the Vikings (5-3) to 30-17, but his lost fumble in Minnesota territory in the second quarter led directly to a touchdown.
|Oct. 22 7:41 AM PT8:41 AM MT9:41 AM CT10:41 AM ET14:41 GMT10:41 PM 北京时间7:41 AM MST9:41 AM EST9:41 AM CT18:41 UAE10:41 12:41 - Peterson put together his best performance of the season with 153 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's win on Sunday.
Analysis: It was Peterson's second 100-yard effort of the season. It was only his third rushing TD this year. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry against the Cardinals.
|Oct. 18 3:57 PM PT4:57 PM MT5:57 PM CT6:57 PM ET22:57 GMT6:57 AM 北京时间3:57 PM MST5:57 PM EST5:57 PM CT2:57 UAE (+1)18:57 21:57 - The Minnesota Vikings held Peterson and Jared Allen out of practice Thursday as a precaution because of minor injuries, but expect to have both available against Arizona on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson has been playing through a sprained left ankle for the last few weeks. He says the ankle feels worse this week than it did this time last week, but he still fully expects to be on the field against the Cardinals.
|Oct. 8 7:58 AM PT8:58 AM MT9:58 AM CT10:58 AM ET14:58 GMT10:58 PM 北京时间7:58 AM MST9:58 AM EST9:58 AM CT18:58 UAE10:58 13:58 - Peterson ran for 88 yards during Sunday's 30-7 win over Tennessee.
Analysis: While Peterson didn't find the end zone, he averaged a season-high 5.2 yards per carry and continues to look more and more like his old self.
|Oct. 1 9:55 AM PT10:55 AM MT11:55 AM CT12:55 PM ET16:55 GMT12:55 AM 北京时间9:55 AM MST11:55 AM EST11:55 AM CT20:55 UAE12:55 15:55 - Peterson had 102 yards rushing on 21 carries in Sunday's win over the Lions.
Analysis: This was the first since Oct. 23, that Peterson has rushed for more than 100. It added more proof his surgically repaired left knee is just fine.
|Sep. 13 10:14 AM PT11:14 AM MT12:14 PM CT1:14 PM ET17:14 GMT1:14 AM 北京时间10:14 AM MST12:14 PM EST12:14 PM CT21:14 UAE13:14 16:14 - Peterson says his left knee has been a little sore and stiff this week after a successful season opener for Minnesota.
Analysis: Peterson said Thursday the expected discomfort lasted about two days but is "nothing that would hold me back." He rushed for 84 yards and two touchdowns last Sunday for the Vikings, a little more than eight months after reconstructive surgery. Peterson says he's at about 95 percent strength. He says he'll reach 100 percent soon and predicts the difference, once he regains the remaining explosiveness in his leg, will be "like night and day."
|Sep. 10 2:57 PM PT3:57 PM MT4:57 PM CT5:57 PM ET21:57 GMT5:57 AM 北京时间2:57 PM MST4:57 PM EST4:57 PM CT1:57 UAE (+1)17:57 20:57 - Peterson returned a little more than eight months after reconstructive surgery to lift the Vikings to a 26-23 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Analysis: Peterson ran 17 times for 84 yards and scored twice from inside the five. "My legs are loose. Seriously, I'm feeling really good. I'm ready to carry the load," he said. Peterson passed Robert Smith into first place on Minnesota's all-time rushing list, with 6,836 yards in his 74th career game.
|Sep. 9 7:53 AM PT8:53 AM MT9:53 AM CT10:53 AM ET14:53 GMT10:53 PM 北京时间7:53 AM MST9:53 AM EST9:53 AM CT18:53 UAE10:53 13:53 - The Minnesota Vikings have Adrian Peterson on their active roster for the season opener against Jacksonville. The Vikings waited until before the game to officially clear Peterson for action, but they've long said his workload will be limited at the start of the season.
Analysis: Just as Peterson pushed for all summer, the 27-year-old star running back was on the list of 46 players suited up on Sunday to face the Jaguars. Peterson is a little more than eight months removed from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
|Sep. 7 10:54 AM PT11:54 AM MT12:54 PM CT1:54 PM ET17:54 GMT1:54 AM 北京时间10:54 AM MST12:54 PM EST12:54 PM CT21:54 UAE13:54 16:54 - The Minnesota Vikings are willing to wait until game time to determine whether Peterson plays in the season opener against Jacksonville.
Analysis: Coach Leslie Frazier said after Friday's practice there is no reason to decide before the active list must be declared 90 minutes ahead of kickoff on Sunday. This was a back track from Thursday, when Frazier said the Vikings would figure out Peterson's status on Friday night or Saturday morning.
|Sep. 6 10:07 AM PT11:07 AM MT12:07 PM CT1:07 PM ET17:07 GMT1:07 AM 北京时间10:07 AM MST12:07 PM EST12:07 PM CT21:07 UAE13:07 16:07 - Peterson says he's ready to play for Minnesota in the season opener.
Analysis: The star running back, recovering from a surgically repaired left knee, said Thursday he has a "gut feeling" about whether the Vikings will let him suit up on Sunday for the game against Jacksonville. But Peterson didn't specify whether he's expecting to play or not.
|Aug. 21 10:55 AM PT11:55 AM MT12:55 PM CT1:55 PM ET17:55 GMT1:55 AM 北京时间10:55 AM MST12:55 PM EST12:55 PM CT21:55 UAE13:55 16:55 - The Minnesota Vikings have a better idea about how to prepare Peterson and his surgically repaired left knee for the season.
Analysis: Their plan is to simply load him up with a variety of work in practice over the next two weeks, rather than put him in an exhibition game for a couple of carries. Coach Leslie Frazier confirmed Tuesday his change of mind about Peterson's preseason action. Frazier originally said he wanted Peterson to experience some contact in a game setting before the regular season begins.
|Aug. 15 3:07 PM PT4:07 PM MT5:07 PM CT6:07 PM ET22:07 GMT6:07 AM 北京时间3:07 PM MST5:07 PM EST5:07 PM CT2:07 UAE (+1)18:07 21:07 - Peterson has cleared every hurdle in his rehabilitation either ahead of time or on schedule. As nervous as the Vikings must be -- and as skeptical as some observers around the league might be -- he is probably as capable as anyone of taking the ball right at his tacklers without hesitation in Week 1.
Analysis: Despite the evolution of the league into a passing-dominated game, Peterson is far too valuable for Minnesota to risk him getting hit the wrong way in some meaningless drill. He wore full pads in Tuesday's practice for the first time since his injury, but coach Les Frazier went out of his way to warn the defense not to touch him.
|Aug. 14 3:00 PM PT4:00 PM MT5:00 PM CT6:00 PM ET22:00 GMT6:00 AM 北京时间3:00 PM MST5:00 PM EST5:00 PM CT2:00 UAE (+1)18:00 21:00 - Peterson has taken another important step forward in his recovery from reconstructive surgery on his left knee: taking part in his first full-pads practice. This was the first time since his injury last Dec. 24 he put shoulder pads on.
Analysis: Peterson was finally cleared for full activity Tuesday. He carried the ball only a handful of times in full team drills with the first team offense, and he wasn't touched by the defense. That was the mandate from the coaching staff, to protect the Vikings star at all costs. Peterson said the precaution was unnecessary. He had a big smile on his face for much of the afternoon, except when he unsuccessfully lobbied the coaches to take a couple more snaps.
|Aug. 12 9:48 AM PT10:48 AM MT11:48 AM CT12:48 PM ET16:48 GMT12:48 AM 北京时间9:48 AM MST11:48 AM EST11:48 AM CT20:48 UAE12:48 15:48 - The Minnesota Vikings have activated running back Adrian Peterson from the physically unable to perform list Sunday, with coach Leslie Frazier saying Peterson had done everything in his rehab that could be done working by himself.
Analysis: Peterson had major knee surgery on Dec. 31, and Frazier credited Peterson's hard work for the quick return. During Sunday's morning walk-through, Peterson rejoined his offensive teammates for a half-hour session.
|Aug. 8 1:02 PM PT2:02 PM MT3:02 PM CT4:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 AM 北京时间1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST3:02 PM CT0:02 UAE (+1)16:02 19:02 - Minnesota is aiming to put Peterson in for some exhibition-game carries before they clear him for the regular-season opener. In order to get to that point, the star running back will have to start practicing. That could come next week. The coaching and medical staffs will evaluate Peterson's left knee after the Vikings return from San Francisco, the site of their first preseason game Friday night.
Analysis: The date that matters most is Sept. 9, when the Vikings play Jacksonville to start the season. Coach Leslie Frazier said again there's no indication Peterson won't be able to take part in that game.
|Aug. 6 7:25 AM PT8:25 AM MT9:25 AM CT10:25 AM ET14:25 GMT10:25 PM 北京时间7:25 AM MST9:25 AM EST9:25 AM CT18:25 UAE10:25 13:25 - Prosecutors have again agreed to push back the court date for Peterson to face a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge.
Analysis: A pretrial hearing was originally scheduled for July 13, and it was initially moved to Monday. Attorney Rusty Hardin says hearings will now be held Sept. 27 and Nov. 15 before Judge Natalie Fleming. Hardin says prosecutors need more time to review evidence and conduct interviews about the July 7 incident in which Peterson was arrested outside a Houston night club.
|July 31 5:30 PM PT6:30 PM MT7:30 PM CT8:30 PM ET0:30 GMT8:30 AM 北京时间5:30 PM MST7:30 PM EST7:30 PM CT4:30 UAE (+1)20:30 23:30 - Peterson has resumed his rehabilitation after a scary allergic reaction that sent him to the hospital.
Analysis: Peterson picked right up where he left off in his recovery work on his surgically repaired left knee Tuesday, the day after eating jambalaya caused shortness of breath and his face to swell. Peterson had hot dogs for lunch this time. He's concerned shrimp in the jambalaya caused his reaction. He says he's eaten seafood "all the time" without prior problems. He's waiting for blood tests to determine the source of the allergy.
|July 27 9:56 AM PT10:56 AM MT11:56 AM CT12:56 PM ET16:56 GMT12:56 AM 北京时间9:56 AM MST11:56 AM EST11:56 AM CT20:56 UAE12:56 15:56 - The Minnesota Vikings have placed Peterson on the active physically unable to perform list to start training camp.
Analysis: The move was expected, considering the team's preference to be cautious with their franchise player and his comeback from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. Peterson can come off the PUP list at any time, but he can't take part in drills with the team until then. He still counts against the 90-man roster.
|July 13 2:43 PM PT3:43 PM MT4:43 PM CT5:43 PM ET21:43 GMT5:43 AM 北京时间2:43 PM MST4:43 PM EST4:43 PM CT1:43 UAE (+1)17:43 20:43 - Prosecutors have agreed to reset Peterson's court date to Aug. 6 on a misdemeanor charge stemming from an incident at a Houston nightclub.
Analysis: The Minnesota Vikings star running back was charged with resisting arrest early Saturday. He was handcuffed and briefly jailed after a confrontation with an off-duty police officer at the club. He was released on a $1,000 bond.
|July 7 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET17:15 GMT1:15 AM 北京时间10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:15 PM CT21:15 UAE13:15 16:15 - Peterson has been arrested in Houston on a charge of resisting arrest.
Analysis: Peterson, who is from Palestine, Texas, remains in a Houston jail on a $1,000 bond, according to information on the Houston Police Department website. Team spokesman Bob Hagan said Saturday that the Vikings "are aware of the situation and are gathering more information." No further details were available on the arrest. A Houston police spokesman didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
|June 20 3:21 PM PT4:21 PM MT5:21 PM CT6:21 PM ET22:21 GMT6:21 AM 北京时间3:21 PM MST5:21 PM EST5:21 PM CT2:21 UAE (+1)18:21 21:21 - Peterson's steady progress and lack of setbacks since tearing the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments last Dec. 24 has only increased the expectations that he'll find a way to be on the field for the season opener Sept. 9 when the Vikings host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Analysis: Peterson declared himself "pretty much wide open" as far as his ability to go full speed in any type of drill, exercise or activity.
|Apr. 5 1:57 PM PT2:57 PM MT3:57 PM CT4:57 PM ET20:57 GMT4:57 AM 北京时间1:57 PM MST3:57 PM EST3:57 PM CT0:57 UAE (+1)16:57 19:57 - Peterson has pledged $1 million to the Oklahoma athletics department, his launching pad for a stellar NFL career.
Analysis: The university announced the donation Thursday. It will go toward construction of a new student housing facility and establish a football scholarship endowment in Peterson's name. The university says this is the largest gift to the athletics department from a former football player.
