1. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
After tearing his ACL late last season, there were reports that Adrian Peterson might have to miss the 2012 season. Not only did Peterson make a full (and miraculous) recovery, but he’s had arguably the best season we’ve ever seen from an NFL running back. He now has 1,812 yards on the ground this season, topping his previous career high of 1,760. He is just 294 yards away from Eric Dickerson’s record of 2,106. He’s the comeback player and that can’t even be argued. 2. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
He hasn’t had such a bad "comeback" year, either. - Peter Schrager
