look at jason allen, antonio cromartie, mcgahee....some of those guys had WAY worse injuries then peterson, and his combine numbers are going to be so good along with his production he wont leave the top 5, and most likely the big 3....mcgahee hasnt been hurt since so that payed off, alot of players pan out fine....


i wouldnt call him injury prone yet, he has had 2 injuries, the high ankle sprain that took all last year to heal, and a broken collarbone, that worries be because of the location of the injury, but you can get surgery on that if you want to have screws inserted, or let it heal natrually, either way by the time he lifts to rehab by pre season he will be fine again


And look at Deuce Mcallister and how much he dropped due to his injury. Although he stayed in the first round, I dont think somewhere in the 20's is what people thought of him before his injury.

I broke my right collarbone pretty bad while mountainbiking last fall and my sports medicine doc told me I was lucky - given the force applied to the shoulder, snapping that bone was much better than the other alternatives (e.g. damage to the shoulder joint, neck, etc.). Unless you're Charles Rogers, it heals back 100%. And sure enough 3 months later I was playing flag football & volleyball again.

Note: I'm not comparing myself to an elite football player, just saying a bone break is not necessarily worse than joint damage.

bone breaks heal stronger than they were originally.

i'm not worried about AD's ability to stay healthy. he's a tough runner that punishes the defense. he's going to get nicked up from time to time. he separated his shoulder as a freshman and played through it. high ankle sprain kept him sidlined for 1 (?) game last year. played the whole year hurt behind a bad offensive line. and this year the broken collar bone is a fluke. just a freak deal. there is no way he comes back for his senior year. no chance. and he's still the most talented player in the draft.

Last time I checked, RBs don't run or cut with their collarbone ;-D

Although Miami used a similar analogy with Culpepper vs. Brees... guess it didn't work out so well for them. :-t

the word is regardless.

It was a fluke play and im not really sure you can call him injury prone quite yet after something like this. Last year he was basically hurt the whole season though. He still made a lot of teams look silly though.

What worries me is the comparison ive heard from several sources linking APs style of running to Chris Brown....yuck. :-P


Irregardless can be used to add emphasis. It's non-standard english, but who cares. I don't see anyone trying to pull grammar teacher on the word "ain't" or "gonna".

And to get on topic, the NFL and fantasy owners will avoid Adrian Peterson at their own risk. I would absolutely love for someone to jump on Calvin Johnson at #1 and let AP drop to #2 for me. That is the DREAM dynasty draft scenario.

He might have been a lock at #1, until you factor in the Al Davis affect, but I wouldn't risk a #1 overall pick on a guy who doesn't seem too healthy.


LT dived into the endzone this week on his way to 4 TD runs.
