Peterson Ready To 'Get Back To Normal'

July 31, 2012, 10:05 PM by Matt Holsen

Peterson Ready To 'Get Back To Normal'
MANKATO, MN -

It's been one heck of a year for Adrian Peterson.

The Vikings running back is already busy rehabbing after knee surgery and on Monday he was back in the hospital for a different reason. Peterson had an allergic reaction to some jambalaya at training camp. He's all better now though and on Tuesday he even had a public workout to prove it.

Watching Adrian Peterson get put to the test, it's hard to believe he was in big trouble just a day before.

“It was a critical situation and they did a good job. They had the epi-pen, stuck me, and that helped me out a lot,” Peterson said. “It opened my lungs up and I was able to breathe a lot better until the ambulance made it. I'm feeling good now.”

Peterson, a lover of seafood, still isn't sure what it was that caused him to have an allergic reaction. Thankfully head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman was nearby and rushed to the room with a doctor to help stabilize the All-Pro.

“It was like 20 minutes after I ate. I was getting ready to lay down and I felt my throat itching, my ears itching,” Peterson said. “All of a sudden, my face just swelled up, my eyes swelled up. I couldn't breathe out my nose. That's when I made the phone call to Sugarman.

With the incident out of the way now and his health getting back to normal, Peterson is looking forward. He continues to push coaches to let him return to practice and is hoping to suit up for a game soon.

“I definitely want to play a preseason game. That's the only way to really get back to normal is going out there and participating and cutting and dodging guys, playing football. Hopefully I get the opportunity to do that,” Peterson said.

Peterson stuck to a safe choice for lunch on Tuesday, he went with hot dogs.
