Report: Adrian Peterson May Not Play Sunday Against New Orleans Saints
The Minnesota Vikings announced on Monday that Adrian Peterson would play in their upcoming game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. What, do they have Roger Goodell making their decisions for them or something?
Good news, guilt is creeping in. It sounds like somebody in the football business is starting to think about something other than football. The Vikings might recant their decision. There is a distinct possibility that Adrian Peterson will be held from the game, according to Pro Football Talk.
Don't be surprised if Vikings reverse course on letting Adrian Peterson play this Sunday. Hearing that Monday's decision could change.

Fantasy owners that picked up Matt Asiata and Jerrick McKinnon should not, I repeat, NOT drop either player.
NFL Sponsors have put a predictably weak amount of pressure on the league. Still, the Radisson Hotels showed some gumption and suspended their punishment. Nike removed Adrian Peterson apparel from the Twin Cities area.
Peterson is embroiled in a child injury charge that has opened a can of worms of accusations. He missed last Sunday's game against the Patriots due to his indictment. I'm not sure anyone is comfortable with the idea of him running onto the field to the applause of NFL fans. That doesn't strike me as the right thing to do.
