“Tragic” situation for Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson is indeed dealing with a personal situation that a source close to Peterson describes as “tragic.”

The source declined to share any further details, explaining that it’s a subject Peterson will address at the appropriate time.

On Thursday, Stu Whitney of the Argus (S.D.) Leader reported that Peterson remains in Sioux Falls, “dealing with [a] medical issue involving [a] young family member that likely will be a police matter” and that it is a “very serious” health situation.

No further details are currently available.  Multiple tipsters have suggested a possible link to news of a Sioux Falls toddler being in critical condition, and a man named Robert Joseph Patterson charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery of an infant.

We continue to extend our best wishes to Adrian Peterson and his family.
