We all know Adrian Peterson had a major knee injury (which required ACL surgery), but many of us forgot that Toby Gerhart tore his MCL on Jan. 1.

Gerhart did not have surgery but says that the MCL has healed on it own, and has been working to strengthen his quads. Gerhart’s non-surgery injury has him on pace to be back in time for Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

The Vikings are hurting by having their two best RBs down with knee injuries, but they both plan to be back by the week 1 of the regular season.  Perhaps they will split carries more evenly early in the season while AP continues to mend.
