Re: Adrian Peterson tears ACL, needs reconstructive surgery
i can see playmaker's points. I am optimistic about Peterson's comeback from this injury in the next 9 to 12 months. however, i don't see him making the same cuts or breakout speed like he did.
This was the same for McGahee before he got hurt in that BCS championship game. he was a beast with Miami before the injury. After the injury, he showed some signs, but wasn't the same back. He was able to come back successfully, but he really did need to make an adjustment in the type of running back he was 8 years ago.
