Last week Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson underwent surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee.

After surgery Peterson was clearly feeling well enough to share his singing voice with the world. AP posted a video of his musical stylings on Instagram Monday.

No, this is me doped up! I didn't remember this video, my mother said to me "you were singing after surgery" ???? the look on my face! But clearly my wife recorded me after waking up from anesthesia! Not cool but nevertheless hilarious! To God be the glory !!!

While no one really knows when or if Peterson will be able to return to the Vikings this season, the team placed him on injured reserve last week, meaning he'll be out until at least Nov. 20th.
