Re: Adrian Peterson tears ACL, needs reconstructive surgery
Even if this injury hadn't happened, he has still reached a stage in his career where wear/tear was going to become a concern soon. He's been a workhorse back.
The stats were already in a slow decline.
Even with just one of these injuries, it was bound to be a tough road ahead for him, let alone two. He can still come back and be a solid contributor, but I think his days of being one of the top stars in the league is sadly over.
