Much of Adrian Peterson's success this season can be credited to Washington's strong offensive line. Injuries however, have absolutely decimated the Redskins' offensive line and this could potentially make Peterson less effective.

Peterson is well aware of this, which is why he decided to start drinking Maker's Mark after he heard about the injuries to the offensive line.

To be clear, Peterson was actually just joking about drinking away his sorrows. Overall though, Peterson plans on staying positive and hopes everyone can step up in the wake of the injuries to the offensive line.

From ESPN's John Keim:

"Me and my friend Maker's Mark, we had a long night," Peterson said.

"You've just got to stay positive and keep pressing," said Peterson, the NFL's ninth all-time leading rusher. "It's not the end of the world, and it's not the end of the season for us. We all have to perform better. That's the mindset that I have. … There's something different when you lose three starters to where your mindset shifts to, 'I just gotta do more than what I was doing before.'"

Time will only tell if Peterson can remain this positive. But if Washington's replacement offensive lineman do their part, it's safe to say that Peterson will remain a happy camper.
