Los Angeles, CA (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson won two ESPY awards on Wednesday night as the best NFL player and best comeback athlete.

Peterson finished the 2012-13 campaing with 2,097 rushing yards, just nine yards short of breaking the all-time NFL rushing record, less than a year after coming back from major knee surgery.

He was also nominated for the Male Athlete of the Year but lost out to Lebron James in that category.
