There is finally progress in the case. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson avoided a felony child abuse trial Tuesday by pleading no contest to the charges. He will pay a fine of $4,000, serve 80 hours of community service, be placed on probation.
Now the question is will he play again this season? The Vikings have yet to activate him and are probably awaiting on the league to see if he will have to serve further punishment. Peterson's teammates have already stated they would welcome him back to the team.
Since the NFL has no previous precedent to use in this situation, it is difficult to predict what will happen. Check back for further developments.
