Vikings Reverse Peterson eligibility, placed on NFL exempt list

Editor's Note: This has just been a complete disaster for the Vikings, from top to bottom. There are no winners in this situation at all, at least not yet. - Ross

After being reinstated on Monday, Adrian Peterson is now again suspended by the NFL and the Minnesota Vikings.

Peterson was inactive for the Vikings home opener versus the New England Patriots, a game that saw the Patriots roll the Vikings 30-7. Peterson was suspended for one game after being indicted by a grand jury on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child. The child being referenced in this case is Peterson’s son.

After his one game suspension and reactivation of Peterson to return to team activities this past Monday, the NFL reversed their decision and put Peterson on the leagues exempt list until the legal system decides the fate of Peterson. As of Wednesday, Peterson is barred from any NFL activities.

The Vikings held a press conference this afternoon in regards to the Peterson case. As the case is under further investigation, Twin Cities Nike shops have pulled all Adrian Peterson jerseys from the shelves. Peterson will remain banned from any team or NFL events as the legal process takes its course. The case comes on the heels of the Ray Rice suspension and subsequent release by the Baltimore Ravens was the penalty that was rendered by the NFL and the Ravens. Will the same penalties occur for Peterson? Unlikely, but nothing should be counted out once the proceedings are complete.
