Injuries are common in the NFL but injuries to major players on the same team this early in the season? Not so common. Not until this season anyway as the Vikings are quickly learning. Adrian Peterson was the latest to go down as he twisted his knee and underwent surgery for a torn meniscus.
Dr. Jeffrey Bechler is one of our sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery specialists. He also serves as the official team orthopaedist for Princeton Athletics. Dr. Bechler is very familiar with torn meniscus injuries and explains how the positioning of the tear matters not only for the surgery but also for the recovery and Peterson’s return to play.
