The Minnesota Vikings received a shock when it was announced that Adrian Peterson is being indicted on child abuse charges, which allegedly involved him spanking his four-year-old son with a switch to discipline him.

Due to this uproarious incident, the Vikings have decided to deactivate Peterson for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
