Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been suspended for the entire season due to his child abuse charges.
These charges involve Peterson beating his four-year-old son with a switch in an effort to discipline him, and the running back has not played a down in the NFL since Week 1 of the 2014 season.
The running back officially appealed his suspension, and his hearing is coming up in early December.
