The bad news for Adrian Peterson? He’ll miss at least one more game. The good news? He’ll be paid.
The better news? He’ll have a ruling on his status before the Vikings host the Packers on November 23.
Per a league source, the hearing on Peterson’s non-injury grievance will happen Monday, November 17. Arbitrator Shyam Das will conduct the hearing. Upon its conclusion (and it should be a short hearing), Das will have five days to issue a ruling.
If the grievance had been filed earlier — as in, immediately upon the NFL’s breach of the agreement that originally placed Peterson on the Commissioner-Exempt list — a ruling could have come before Minnesota’s next game on Sunday against the Bears.
