The Minnesota Vikings released a statement this morning, announcing the reinstatement of running back Adrian Peterson. The move allows Peterson to return to practice, and he is expected to play Sunday against the Saints in New Orleans. Here's the statement from the team:
It was the regular season home opener yesterday at the temporary home of the Minnesota Vikings, TCF Bank Stadium, and despite the controversy, plenty of Vikings fans were wearing their #28 jerseys and supporting Adrian Peterson.
NBA Hall of Famer and sports analyst Charles Barkley joined the list of prominent sports figures chiming in on Adrian Peterson's child abuse arrest – this time, defending the Minnesota Vikings running back.
The Minnesota Vikings (1-1) fell to the visiting New England Patriots (1-1) 30-7 this afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, just two days after their star running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of abusing his 11 year-old son.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted by a Texas grand jury on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. The charges stem from a case earlier this year, and have nothing to do with the death of his two year-old son in South Dakota last year.
