EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have voted Adrian Peterson as the team’s winner of the Ed Block Courage award.

The Vikings announced the vote on Tuesday. Peterson has been one of the feel-good stories of the NFL this year. He tore the ACL in his left knee last December, and has returned to lead the league in rushing this season.

Peterson needs 294 yards in the final two games to eclipse Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards set back in 1984. His 1,812 yards this season are already a career high.

The Ed Block Courage award is given to one player on each team who exemplifies commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.
