NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson insists his collarbone has healed properly and he will be in minicamp for whichever team selects him in Saturday's NFL draft.

Peterson says he's not concerned that a recent report claiming he will need further surgery on the left collarbone will hurt his draft stock.

Peterson acknowledges that he re-injured the collarbone during Oklahoma's loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl, but says it was not a re-break.

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. Not once has a team told him it was dissatisfied with the findings.

Peterson estimates the injury is "95% healed" and says he still expects to go very high in the draft.
