Played with an abdominal sports hernia from week 10 on. The fact that he almost broke the rushing record anyway is pretty amazing. He's a special player.

If this isn't a topic worthy of its own thread in NFL News, just lock it up / move it. Figured it was news-worthy though.

Viking fans were well aware of this. I'm surprised this wasn't common knowledge to everyone.

I hadn't heard about it till now. I'm sure there were a couple other people as lost as I was. With all the media coverage, and the fact that they still didn't point this out till now, I think that would mean most people are still in the dark about this. Until now. Wink

Wow...

If injuries don't slow his career down, he'll probably go down as the GOAT.

I remember him saying toward the end of the season he was feeling amazing and seriously thought he could play like a 21 game regular season.

I remember lots of reports about "soreness" and pain throughout that timespan but I don't recall them actually coming out and saying it was a hernia. For some reason I remember them saying he had a minor tear.

This man isn't human.

He can't be.

If he doesn't win a SB, or even get to one, it'll be one of the biggest letdowns in NFL history.

Yeah, that's pretty common. It's almost every season that you hear that some player actually had a sports hernia for half the season.

It's impressive that Peterson played so well, but it's a fairly common injury to play through.

Imagine the numbers.

Peterson said he suffered the sports hernia injury some time during the Vikings' 34-24 home victory over the Lions on Nov. 11.

Peterson: "I just remember getting twisted up pretty bad in an awkward position. That next day I felt very uncomfortable in my groin and abdominal area. I thought to myself, 'I'll just wait until I recover,' but I never did. I wasn't able to lift weights because of the strain that it would put on those muscles on an upper- or lower-body workout. It was just about doing what I had to do to push myself every week. My body was sore from the game and the sports hernia every Monday, so I did what I had to do to recover and get my body right."

"I just played through the pain, it was a 10 on a scale of 10. I ran on adrenaline."
