Adrian Peterson, running back for the Minnesota Vikings, is set to meet with NFL officials on Tuesday to discuss his playing status, and whether or not there will be ongoing punishment for his 2014 arrest for child abuse, according to sources. Peterson was suspended early in the 2014 season after he was arrested on criminal child abuse charges under the leagues personal conduct policy. His suspension was set to expire on April 15th, but there has been no word on whether Peterson’s punishment will be extended. He originally appealed the decision.
Peterson’s distaste for the Vikings administration seems to stem from the child abuse charges and how the team and the NFL originally handled the issue. His criminal charges came in the wake of several high profile legal battles for NFL players. The abuse chargers were filed shortly after Ray Rice was arrested on domestic violence charges, and in the wake of Aaron Hernandez murder arrested.
