Adrian Peterson Suspended for 2014 Season.

Adrian Peterson has missed 9 games with the Minnesota Vikings after his run-in with the law on various felony charges such as committing reckless or negligent injuries to a child. Peterson’s 4-year-old son sustained injuries when Peterson disciplined him with a “switch”.  Peterson pleaded no contest to the charges this past Tuesday morning. Peterson will be suspended without pay for the remainder of the season and the Vikings running back will not be eligible for reinstatement no time before April 15, 2015.  Apart from his suspension, Peterson is required to pay $4,000 and also provide 80 hours of Community Service.  Peterson’s reinstatement is said to depend on the progress of his counseling and program treatment.
