Adrian Peterson Player Overview

Peterson tore the meniscus in his right knee in September of 2016. He returned to play just 1 more game (Week 15) before his season ended with knee and groin injuries. This year, the 32-year old will play backup to Mark Ingram in New Orleans. That should minimize his injury risk.
