    Teams wary of Peterson's health

    Teams wary of Peterson's health
    Oklahoma RB re-injured his collarbone in Fiesta Bowl

    "Former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson, an almost certain top-10 pick in the first round of Saturday's NFL draft, re-injured his collarbone in the Sooners' loss in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year's Day -- an injury that has not been previously disclosed except to NFL teams.

    Peterson broke his collarbone on Oct. 14 against Iowa State and missed the rest of Oklahoma's regular season, returning for the first time in the bowl game against Boise State. Peterson made NFL teams aware of the re-injury at the NFL Scouting Combine in February...."

    Probably not a major concern, unless he can't partake in early parts of training camp.
    ???

    But if Peterson incurred injuries related to his recent collarbone injury in the future, and was less effective than many people who suggest he would be another LT, would they own up to their inability to understand why the Vikings passed on him?
    ???

    All speculation, obviously.
    :

    But there was mention of AP's upright running style, which might contribute to upper body injuries.




    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Well, Banks points out that the re-injury delays AP another 2 to 3 months which is enough time to take him out of training camp.

    The important thing is to make sure that collarbone can fully heal and not be a lingering problem throughout all of AP's career.

    Yeah I keep hearing more and more about his injury. A reason to concern maybe. anytime a player gets one of those lingering injuries that can be a problem.

    Exactly.
    Many here say that "we've already got CT".
    Sweet, let AP get healthy.
    Just too much talent to pass on IF he's still there.
    The "You Tube" videos make me drool.

    A definite case of "Man Love" overload.
    Sorry, but I see much Chuck Foreman in this cat.

    Many people said AP would make an immediate impact.
    I guess that reason may be out the window now, if this injury restricts him from training camp.

    BTW, I don't think a player taken at #7 needs to have an immediate impact.
    Rather, he should contribute greatly over his entire Vikings career, however long that may be.

    I don't think we need Landry. We have Sharper (one of the best vets in the game), Tank Williams (a good safety who got hurt last year), Greg Blue (a good, young safety who is only in his second year) and Mike Doss (one of the better Tampa 2 safeties in the league). IMO, drafting Landry would be addressing a position that we have no need in.

    I like Peterson and I think if he stays healthy he will be a good back, but we've already got Chester. If Peterson gets hurt and ends up a bust, what are we left with?

    As an NFL team, you CANNOT MISS in the top 10. If you do, it will ruin your franchise. Look at the Browns. They've missed consistently in the top 10 and it has put them lightyears behind other franchises.

    Just look at the effects of the Williamson pick. Troy was a top 10 pick that (up to this point) has been a bust, and it has affected our offense a great deal. Peterson just has too many question marks to draft.

    Good point. I m just worried that no matter who we pick the expectaions will be unreasonable
