For months, people have wondered whether or not the Dallas Cowboys would attempt to acquire running back Adrian Peterson from the Minnesota Vikings. According the the team's official website, the Cowboys would be "serious contenders" if they were to add the league's top rusher...
Amidst growing public pressure, the Minnesota Vikings have changed course and deactivated Adrian Peterson, placing him on the exempt/commissioner's permission list and making him unavailable for the foreseeable future.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child by a Montgomery County, Texas grand jury. The case stems from an incident where Peterson used a switch to discipline the child involved.
UPDATE 1:40 p.m. ET: TMZ reports the boy is on life support with no brain activity since 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Sources say that if the child fails to show any signs of improvement over the course of the next 24 hours his mother wants to take him off of life support and donate his organs.
