ESPN is reporting that Minnesota Vikings runningback Adrian Peterson has opted to have surgery on his groin in the near future.

Peterson met with Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia Wednesday and it was determined that surgery was necessary.
Meyers performed Peterson's sports hernia surgery last offseason.
Peterson was plagued by the groin injury for much of the second half, missing two of the Vikings' final four games and seeing limited action in the other two. It seemed to rob him of his breakaway speed, and he carried just 18 times for 58 yards in the Vikings' last four games, as he lost his grip on his second consecutive rushing title.
Even with the injuries this season, Peterson still managed to rush for 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns.
