Minnesota Vikings tell Adrian Peterson to stay away from team until legal issues are resolved

(CNN) — Running back Adrian Peterson will not play again for the Minnesota Vikings until his legal issues are resolved, the team said early Wednesday.

Peterson has been placed on the NFL’s Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission list, which will require that Adrian “remain away from all team activities.”

Peterson, who was kept out of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, turned himself in to East Texas authorities Saturday, two days after an indictment alleged the 29-year-old father did “recklessly or by criminal negligence cause bodily injury” to his son, a felony.

Peterson quickly posted $15,000 in bail and was released, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

The Vikings said earlier Tuesday that Peterson would practice with the team and play in next Sunday’s game, but the governor of Minnesota and others criticized that decision.

So Peterson was with the team — then out — then in — and now out again.
