Adrian Peterson will not be back in 2014

Adrian Peterson will not play in the NFL this season after losing his suspension appeal, the NFL’s Greg Aiello announced Friday evening. Peterson argued that the NFL backed out of an agreement that he would be reinstated as soon as the running back had resolved his child abuse case. Hearing officer Harold Henderson ruled otherwise.

According to Aiello, Henderson found that “[Peterson] has not demonstrated that the process and procedures surrounding his discipline were not fair and consistent.” He added: “[Peterson] was afforded all the protections and rights to which he is entitled, and I find no basis to vacate or reduce the discipline.”
