Suspended Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will reach an agreement today to resolve his on-going child abuse case.
According to ProFootballTalk, per a source with knowledge of the situation, Peterson will plead no contest to one count of misdemeanor reckless assault. The plea will not include reference to family violence or violence against a minor.
If the agreement is accepted by Judge Kelly Case, Peterson will pay a $2,000 fine, be placed on probation, and perform 80 hours of community service. The adjudication of the case will be deferred for two years.
Questions remain whether the NFL will impose any further sanctions or punishments on Peterson after letting the Vikings place him on the exempt-list, essentially a paid suspension similar to Panthers DE Greg Hardy. If no further punishment is forthcoming and the Vikings choose to activate him from the list, he could very well play again in the coming weeks.
