Vikings place Adrian Peterson on Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission List

Less than two days after activating Peterson for Sunday’s game in New Orleans, the Vikings reversed course by releasing a statement early Wednesday explaining that Peterson will be placed on the Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission List. That will require Peterson to remain away from all team activities while he takes care of his legal proceedings.

Peterson was deactivated for last week’s loss to the New England Patriots after being indicted on a charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child. The decision to activate Peterson for this week came under heavy criticism, including a call from the governor of Minnesota to suspend Peterson.

The statement indicates that Peterson will remain deactivated until his legal proceedings are resolved.
