Adrian Peterson Undergoes Surgery

Peterson damaged his knee in Sunday night's game against the Packers. His surgery is scheduled for later today.

Peterson was the NFL's 2015 rushing leader with 1,485 yards. The Vikings are scheduled to play the Panthers on Sunday.

Sanchez's story garnered national attention when Joel Macias spotted the elderly man hunched over and struggling to push his cart selling popsicles.

Macias decided to start the GoFundMe campaign that went viral, with people from 52 countries donating money.
