The Vikings announced today that rookie RB Adrian Peterson will not need surgery to complete the healing process of his broken collarbone. Dr. Joel Boyd, the team’s new orthopedic doctor, said in a meeting with reporters today that Peterson will be ready for full contact when training camp begins in July.

Team officials made the final decision Tuesday after another round of tests showed that Peterson’s collarbone is healing satisfactorily on its own. Had he been forced to undergo surgery, Peterson would have needed 3-6 months to recover, Boyd said.

Look for more details later tonight on StarTribune.com and in the morning paper.

I broke my collarbone twice. It's a bone....it's not like a tendon tear or ligament tear.
