NEW YORK (AP) -Adrian Peterson insists his collarbone has healed properly and he will be in minicamp for whichever team selects him in Saturday's NFL draft.
He's also not concerned that a recent report claiming he will need further surgery on the left collarbone will hurt his draft stock.
The Oklahoma running back expects to go very high.
``The last couple of teams I visited with, Atlanta and Minnesota, I've been through everything you can do and there is nothing negative,'' he said Thursday. ``Everything has been positive news. They've got everything right there in front of them and there are no red flags.
``I'll be ready for minicamp and won't miss anything at all.''
Peterson acknowledged he reinjured the collarbone during Oklahoma's loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl.
``Yes, but it was not a re-break,'' he said. ``It wasn't completely healed at the time, but it was solid. I hurt it, but I didn't break it again.''
He estimated the injury is ``95 percent healed.''
In the last two months, Peterson has had CT scans and X-rays, been poked and probed by team doctors and trainers, then had more exams. He said not once has a team indicated it was dissatisfied with the findings.
