Peterson has been plagued by his groin since mid-November, and cost him to miss the Vikings' season finale in December. He also struggled with a sore groin at the end of his MVP-winning 2012 season. Despite battling foot and groin injuries which caused him to miss two games this year, he still managed to collect 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns for 2013. Last off-season, following his 2,097-yard MVP year, Peterson underwent a sports hernia surgery. The prior off-season he spent rehabbing from a torn ACL. To many, it would seem like a groin surgery this offseason would just be another walk in the park for Peterson.
