Vikings | Adrian Peterson played through pain
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (sports hernia) played through the pain of a sports hernia injury, even though he did not practice much during the regular season. After the bye week I didn't truly practice not a week after that until the end of the season," Peterson said. "The only time I did do anything was pretty much on Fridays when I would just do a couple carries or so. Everybody knows that is our short day. I was getting rehab during this process. I knew I wasn't really practicing at all. I wasn't able to lift because of the strain that it would put on those muscles on an upper or lower body workout. That was too much. It was mind over matter. It was just about doing what I had to do to push myself every week. My body was sore from the game and the sports hernia every Monday, so I did what I had to do to recover and get my body right. I just played through the pain. I ran on adrenaline."
