Vikings reactivate Peterson

Share Tweet Email

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Adrian Peterson has issued a statement after being charged with child abuse, saying he’s sorry for hurting his child.

Peterson issued his statement a few hours after the Vikings reinstated him to the team. The star running back was charged last weekend after he struck his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of discipline earlier this summer.

Peterson says he has met with a psychologist and has to live with the fact that the discipline caused an injury he never intended to happen.

Peterson says he’s not perfect, but also says “without a doubt I am not a child abuser.”
