Adrian Peterson Should Only Play On Sunday If It Will Ease His Pain
In tragic news from the NFL, Adrian Peterson‘s son has died after sustaining injuries to his head. Police believe the injuries are the result of an assault from Robert Patterson, who is said to be the new boyfriend of the mother of Peterson’s child. Few details are available at this time, but Patterson is likely to be charged with murder in the coming days.
Peterson returned to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday and asked that the matter be kept private: “I really appreciate all the support that I’ve been receiving from fans, the Vikings organization. This is a private matter and I would ask you all to please just respect my privacy and not ask at all about the situation at hand.”
I hope that continues as the running back deals with this unthinkable tragedy.
Now clearly, football is secondary when an event like this happens, but the question will hang in the balance – will AP play on Sunday? Earlier on Friday, he said he would play, but that was before the news of his son’s death emerged.
No one in this situation can tell Peterson how to react or what to do or what not do. It’s his call if he’s going to play. We all deal with tragedy in different ways and if AP will feel better by playing the game he loves, then we all should respect that decision.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Adrian Peterson and his family as they try to deal with this tragedy.
