Peterson is reinstated by the Minnesota Vikings after sitting out Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf say they will wait to see how the legal system deals with Peterson’s child abuse charges before making a decision on his future with the team. The Wilf’s statement:
To be clear, we take very seriously any matter that involves the welfare of a child. At this time, however, we believe this is a matter of due process and we should allow the legal system to proceed so we can come to the most effective conclusions and then determine the appropriate course of action. This is a difficult path to navigate, and our focus is on doing the right thing.
