You didn't think Science Buzz could go all week without jumping on the Vikings/Adrian Peterson media frenzy bandwagon, did you? Here's an interesting Q&A with Dr. James Andrews, the doctor who did the surgery on Peterson's injured knee, on why AP's recovery has been so good. He also has a warning that all youth sports athletes, parents and coaches should heed.

So why do you think AP has had such a good season after suffering such a devastating injury? Post a comment below.
