Adrian Peterson to address the media

On Friday morning, conflicting reports surfaced surrounding the condition of Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson’s two-year-old son. TMZ reported that Peterson’s son is in critical condition after a severe beating from the boyfriend of the child’s mother, while other reports have since said that the child harmed was not Peterson’s son.

Peterson returned to the Vikings facility on Friday and will be at the practice, but we should have a clear answer on the situation after he addresses the media following the session.

From NFL.com:

Peterson was back at the Vikings’ facility Friday and will attend practice, according to multiple outlets. Peterson is expected to address the media after the light walkthrough, which is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. CT. Coach Leslie Frazier is schduled to speak to the media at 12:15 p.m. CT.

This is a very fluid situation, so we will continue to update you with the most up-to-date information as it becomes available.

In the meantime, continue to send positive thoughts to the family of the young boy who was harmed and is now fighting for his life.
