Minnesota Vikings DEACTIVATE Adrian Peterson (Again) Pending Legal Proceedings
According to The YBF, Adrian Peterson has been banned from all team activities while he handles his legal proceedings. The Minnesota Vikings organization have reversed their decision. They have now suspended NFL star running back Adrian Petersonplacing him on the exempt/commissioner’s permission list. Days after reinstating Adrian to play in this Sunday’s upcoming game against the New Orleans Saints, the Vikings have suspended the NFL baller indefinitely, requiring him to stay away from all team activities while he takes care of his legal proceedings.
According to NFL.com, the Vikings statement indicates that Peterson will remain deactivated until his legal proceedings are resolved. Peterson has an initial hearing for his charges on October 8th. But, a trial likely won’t proceed until 2015.
Adrian’s agent Ben Dogra has issued a statement regarding the recent suspension saying,
"This is the best possible outcome given the circumstances. Adrian understands the gravity of the situation and this enables him to take care of his personal situation. We fully support Adrian and he looks forward to watching his teammates and coaches being successful during his absence."
