Adrian Peterson's attorney: Latest allegation 'simply not true'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) Adrian Peterson's attorney said the latest allegation about the Vikings running back, that he was involved in a second child abuse investigation, "is simply not true."

"The allegation is more than one year old and authorities took no action," said the lawyer, Rusty Hardin. "An adult witness admittedly insists Adrian did nothing inappropriate with his son."

In the 2013 incident, a 4-year-old son of Peterson's had a scar on his forehead after Peterson acknowledged disciplining him, according to KHOU in Houston. How the injury happened was never made clear, and authorities did not bring charges.

Report: Adrian Peterson was investigated in another abuse case
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who's under indictment for reckless or negligent injury to a child in a case involving his 4-year-old son, was investigated for another accusation of child abuse last year in regard to one of his other sons, reports KHOU 11 News Houston.

The report said that boy, who also was 4 at the time, had a scar on his forehead after being disciplined by Peterson for cursing at his sibling. Charges were not brought against Peterson in that case.

According to KMSP-TV in Minneapolis-St. Paul, this "new" case could be used as evidence in the current investigation.

Adrian Peterson's court date delayed until Oct. 8
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) Vikings running back Adrian Peterson originally was scheduled to appear in a Texas court Wednesday on a charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child -- his 4-year-old son. But his arraignment has been postponed to Oct. 8, reports NFL.com.

Peterson, who's expected to play Week 3 at the Saints, released a statement Monday. It read in part: "I never, ever intended to harm my son. I will say the same thing once I have my day in court."

Adrian Peterson expected to play Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) The Vikings announced Monday running back Adrian Peterson will participate in practices and meetings this week, and he is expected to play Week 3 against the Saints. 

The following statement was released Monday by Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf:

Today’s decision was made after significant thought, discussion and consideration. As evidenced by our decision to deactivate Adrian from yesterday’s game, this is clearly a very important issue. On Friday, we felt it was in the best interests of the organization to step back, evaluate the situation, and not rush to judgment given the seriousness of this matter. At that time, we made the decision that we felt was best for the Vikings and all parties involved.

To be clear, we take very seriously any matter that involves the welfare of a child. At this time, however, we believe this is a matter of due process and we should allow the legal system to proceed so we can come to the most effective conclusions and then determine the appropriate course of action. This is a difficult path to navigate, and our focus is on doing the right thing. Currently we believe we are at a juncture where the most appropriate next step is to allow the judicial process to move forward.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and support Adrian’s fulfillment of his legal responsibilities throughout this process.
