Adrian Peterson's son has been injured badly. His 2-year-old son is reportedly in critical condition, with Peterson expected to address the media later on Friday afternoon (Oct. 11). According to a report from Friday, 27-year-old Joseph Patterson has been arrested in the case. He is is being held on two felony counts of aggravated battery of an infant and aggravated assault domestic.
There are a lot of details still missing from this case, including the relation of the suspect to Peterson. Information had started coming out on Thursday (Oct. 10) that something tragic had taken place in his life and that it was a police matter. One report stated that there could be a link between an injured toddler in Sioux Falls and the Peterson family.
More details about this case will likely come out during Friday, with the expectation that at some point Adrian Peterson will also address the press about the status of his son. Whether or not he will play Sunday (Oct. 13) is only a secondary concern at this point when it comes to the welfare of his family.
The Minnesota Vikings are slated to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon in a must-win situation.
