12:52 PM ET 04.09 | Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson isn't yet fully recovered following January hernia surgery. The news comes from head coach Leslie Frazier, speaking after an autograph and sports collectible convention on Sunday. The Vikings will meet for voluntary offseason workouts on April 22, and Frazier also said he hopes Peterson will be at the start of those workouts. That said, they aren't always a huge deal, and it's the organized team activities in May that really set the pace for the upcoming season. Given that Frazier said Peterson is able to run and cut at this point in the recovery process, the running back being ready for the May OTAs does seem likely.

Yeah, the guy has a history of not returning from injuries in time for the season.

I would find a nice comfy chair for him to sit in when May OTA's come around.


A LaZ-Y-Boy should serve nicely.
