Adrian Peterson played in ten games with a sports hernia

It was reported earlier that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson underwent surgery for a sports hernia.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Peterson played ten games this season with a sports hernia.

That’s really unbelievable.

Update: Peterson told ESPN’s Josina Anderson the following:

“I suffered the injury against Detroit at home, but I didn’t know the extent I was hurt then. I just remember getting twisted up pretty bad in an awkward position. My jersey never moves like that. I don’t know if it was from a tackle or from me pulling away from someone. I just remember thinking when I saw my jersey like that, that I must’ve gotten twisted up pretty bad. 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 came out after that play. Each week it just got worse and worse and worse. I kept thinking to myself why is this happening and why now. With everything that I was going through with my knee I just said to myself I am not going to let this bring me down. I just focused on doing my rehab, getting rest and continuing to play.”
