Adrian Peterson Suspended for Entire Season

Union: Adrian Peterson to appeal ban

Adrian Peterson has been suspended without pay for at least the remainder of the 2014 season. The NFL announced its highly anticipated ruling Tuesday morning, stating that the Minnesota Vikings' star running back will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15, 2015, for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The NFL Players Association released a statement later Tuesday morning, announcing that it will appeal Peterson's suspension because "the discipline imposed is inconsistent."

Peterson was indicted in September on a felony charge of injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year. But the All-Pro pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless assault Nov. 4, setting the stage for the NFL's ruling. 

The league announced Peterson's suspension in a lengthy statement, citing "an incident of abusive discipline that he inflicted on his four-year-old son."
