Re: Adrian Peterson tears ACL, needs reconstructive surgery
Running backs tend to drop off pretty fast from year to year even without serious injury. Look what happened to Shaun Alexander. Went from having a career year, to being worthless the next season. Even LT went from being best in the NFL to being a decent back up only two seasons later. I also hope Peterson comes back strong, but I think he has one, maybe two good seasons left in him max, if he's able to get back to full strength at all.
