Over the last 15 years, I would say surprise has gone out the window, as far as finding out that an injured superstar used PED's to help in their recovery and ability to get back on the field quicker. Is Adrian Peterson the latest of these athletes to be tempted by shortened recovery time from a once career ending injury?

You would be naive to believe that the possiblity isnt there. Of course he could be using. In this day and age of sports you never know. Quite frankly i really dont care. If im the owner, thank god he used them if he did. He just made me a lot of money!

I hope he didn't use anything, but damn he came back quick and better than ever. Until there's proof he did, I'm going to assume he didn't and keep giving him all the credit in the world, but I kinda wanted to see what the consensus of the board is. Love watching him play, it's a breath of fresh air in the pass happy NFL

What exactly is a PED? Is Creatine one? Is Tylenol one? I mean they help you enhance your performance and are drugs. I think people are way to sensitive about this subject. Players have used something since sport began, but the media wants us to believe it just started in late 70's.
If serious, Bo's career ending injury ended his career. AD was back in less than 9 months. I guess the question is, has medical technology(surgery and rehab) come that far in 20 years, or is he using PED's?
