Eight days after groin surgery, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is making the rounds in New York City before the Super Bowl. He's been conducting interviews for a handful of promotions, headlined a Super Bowl party earlier this week and is hosting a comedy show featuring Chris Tucker in New Jersey on Friday night. On Saturday, he'll present the Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors show.

Peterson stopped by ESPN Radio's "Mike and Mike" show on Friday morning, and said he's feeling fine after surgery, adding he's been able to do some upper-body workouts and will be back to normal in about six weeks.

"I would probably be back working (out already if not for the surgery, but) not too much. It's not going to interfere," Peterson said. "I'm still able to do some of the upper body exercises and things like that, but kind of laying off the lower body workouts."
