  • Peterson's mom: Whipping not abuse, it's about love

    17 Sep 2014 | 4:10 pm
    HOUSTON (AP) Adrian Peterson's mother is defending the Minnesota Vikings running back in the wake of child abuse allegations against him, saying that he is "trying hard to be a good parent." Bonita Jackson said she and Peterson's father, Nelson Peterson, were "big disciplinarians" who used hands, switches and belts to occasionally spank all six of her children. An indictment by the Montgomery County grand jury accuses Adrian Peterson of felony child abuse for swatting his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch and his team has taken him off the active roster while the case plays out. "I don't…
  • Panthers remove DE Hardy from active roster

    17 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers finally made a decision on Greg Hardy: the Pro Bowl defensive end will not play anymore games for Carolina until his domestic violence case is resolved.

So the Panthers placed Hardy on the exempt-commissioner's permission list just hours after the Vikings took a similar disciplinary approach with Adrian Peterson. The Minnesota running back is addressing child abuse…
  • To 'get it right,' Vikings put Peterson on leave

    17 Sep 2014 | 3:23 pm
    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was declared out, back in, then out again as he faces a felony child-abuse charge in Texas. This time, he could be gone for the season. "We made a mistake," Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said, "and we needed to get this right." Vikings executives emerged Wednesday from a late-night deliberation to voice regret of their initial decision to let Peterson play this week after sitting him for a game once he was charged with injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch. Now Peterson is back on paid leave…
  • Union appeals Rice's indefinite suspension by NFL

    17 Sep 2014 | 6:55 am
    BALTIMORE (AP) The NFL players' union appealed Ray Rice's indefinite suspension Tuesday night, saying that he shouldn't be punished twice for punching his fiancee in a casino elevator. Rice was originally handed a two-game suspension in July under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with assault for the Feb. 15 attack.

Within hours, the Ravens released Rice and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell…
