Vikings star back Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery on his groin

According to Josina Anderson, Adrian Peterson will undergo surgery on his groin in the coming days.

The Minnesota Vikings running back missed two of the final three games of the season with groin and foot injures. All Day carried the ball just 18 times in the final four weeks of the season. He finished with 1,266 yards in 14 games in 2013.

The groin was an issue since he was injured in a mid-November loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

According to USA Today, one option to relieve the groin pain is an abductor release — a minimally invasive procedure that involves cutting an irritated tendon. That procedure would require about a two-month rehab process.

Peterson still registered a 279-1,266-4.5-10 which is pretty nasty, imagine him 100 percent?
