Adrian Peterson has had enough on his plate over the last calendar year. After recovering from the complete shattering of his left knee, he now must deal with legal troubles.
As first reported by Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle, Peterson was arrested in Houston for resisting arrest outside of a Houston nightclub after he reportedly didn't leave when the establishment closed, a source with knowledge of the situation told ProFootballTalk.com.
The odd part, as PFT points out, is that in order for the Vikings' running back to be charged with resisting arrest, he must have been arrested in the first place.
PFT states that, as of now, Peterson hasn't been charged for any other crime.
In regards to his rehabilitation, there's a positive vibe coming from Vikings' headquarters about the freakish physical specimen's chances to play in the season opener on September 9th.
ESPNTwinCities gathered some quotes from head coach Leslie Frazier about Peterson's recovery:
"He looks good. He's moving around without any hitch, he's doing a lot of good things. What you don't know is how he's going to be when you put pads on and someone comes and they dive at his ankle or they look as if they're going to grab his knee. That you can't predict. But based on where he is today, everything is moving in the right direction. I don't know if we'll put him on the practice field anytime soon when we get to Mankato.
It'll be interesting to track when Peterson sees the field again, if at all, before the the 2012 season begins.
