Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson said that he will not wear a brace when he returns from his knee injury:
 
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told reporters he could practice again as soon as Sunday, but doesn’t want to wear a brace on his surgically repaired knee when he does.
 
Peterson obviously won’t play in Friday’s exhibition opener against San Francisco, but indicated he shouldn’t be out too much longer.
 
Peterson had surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Dec. 30, but has no plans to wear a protective brace when he does return.
 
“It’s just uncomfortable,” Peterson said of wearing a brace. “It is what it is. If I get hit in the knee, it’s like I’m back to normal now. I’m just looking at it like that.
 
“I’m not trying to have that mentally — ‘I’ve got this knee brace on’ so you’re kind of playing timid or you’re kind of thinking a little more. I’m just going all natural like I’ve been.”
 
Peterson is a great inspiration for anyone who got injured. I have never seen a guy this motivated to get back to playing, and this confident that he will be the same player he was prior to his injury. You have to respect that. Let's hope AP will be back in full strength..
