Vikings Flip-Flop To Bring Back Peterson For Sunday
Vince Lombardi famously said, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” The Minnesota Vikings agree. John Amato writes:
It didn’t take long for the Minnesota Vikings to reverse their principled stance against star running back Adrian Peterson, who they deactivated for yesterday’s game.
The Minnesota Vikings reinstated star running back Adrian Peterson on Monday, three days after benching him because he was facing a child-abuse charge in Texas for using a wooden switch to spank his 4-year-old son.
Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf said the decision to bring back Peterson for practices and Sunday’s game at New Orleans was made “after significant thought, discussion and consideration.” Peterson was deactivated for Sunday’s 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots after he was charged with striking his 4-year-old son with a tree branch this summer.
The Wilfs say they want to let the legal process play out before making any more definitive decisions on Peterson’s future with the team.
I wonder if Zygi will say they never saw the photos of Peterson’s bruised and bloodiedfour year old son?
It wasn’t long ago that the Vikings suspended a player for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend which lasted 10 games, but then again, he’s not Adrian Peterson.[su_csky_ad]
