Adrian Peterson's two-year-old son passes away
For those who missed it, Peterson's infant son was beaten by Joseph Patterson - the 27-year-old boyfriend of the child's mother. Patterson was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery of an infant, and his bail has set placed at $750,000. The state's attorney is now considering additional charges.
Peterson said that he will play "without a doubt" on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, and that he is "able to release a lot of stress through sports," which is a subject I touched on earlier today. I'll be rooting for him during this weekend's emotional contest, and I'd be pretty scared if I were the Panthers right now.
