Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson underwent a successful groin surgery Thursday, the team said. Peterson saw Dr. William Meyers at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia to repair his adductor muscle and perform a compartmental release.

Peterson, who recently announced he would miss the Pro Bowl in order to heal, is expected to make a full recovery in six weeks.

Meyers also performed Peterson's sports hernia surgery last offseason.

The 2012-13 season MVP rushed for 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns in limited action this season.
