Instead of preparing for another Pro Bowl appearance, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be seeing a specialist to evaluate his groin injury next week. Surgery is possible, according to USA Today. 

Peterson, 28, carried the ball just 18 times for 58 yards in the final four games of the season as he was sidelined twice. The 2012 NFL MVP played through a hamstring pull in October and didn't miss any time from a groin pull that most noticeably hampered him in a Nov. 17 loss at the Seattle Seahawks. But a mid-foot sprain in a Dec. 8 loss at Baltimore knocked him out of all but one of the final three games. 

Peterson, who had two surgeries to repair a torn ACL and a sports hernia before last season, is scheduled to see Philadelphia-based specialist William Meyers next week, per the report.
