The NFL will review the Adrian Peterson child abuse incident under their personal conduct policy.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson pushed aside Ray Rice as the center of controversy in the NFL due to alleged child abuse.
The running back admitted to using a switch to spank his four-year-old son as discipline for pushing another kid when they were playing a video game.
His son received cuts and bruises in multiple parts of his lower body area, and the kid’s mother took him to the doctor where she concluded that this was an act of child abuse.
According to a report by Pro Football Talk, the league will review this case. “This will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy,” the league said in a statement
The Vikings have already acted by deactivating Peterson for the Week 2 game against the New England Patriots, and backup running back Matt Asiata may be in for a heavy workload if Peterson is to miss significant time.
