Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not be returning to the team in time for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. The hearing on Peterson’s status with the league will take place after the game.
Per a league source, the hearing on Peterson’s non-injury grievance will happen Monday, November 17, 2014. Arbitrator Shyam Das will conduct the hearing and afterwards Das will have five days to issue a ruling.
Peterson, the 2012 NFL MVP and owner of the 2nd highest rushing total in a season in NFL history, was placed on the Commissioner’s exempt list after being arrested for child abuse against his 4-year old son. Peterson allegedly struck the child with a switch until he bled.
Last week, Peterson pleaded no contest to the charges and was given probation and community service as his punishment.
Whether or not the Minnesota Vikings would welcome Peterson back after the problems surrounding his controversial departure from the team remains to be seen, but most suspect that the Vikings will allow him to return.
