Minnesotta Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will have to wait a little longer to put the pads back on.
According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, the league rejected an attempt by Peterson and the NFL Players Association to gain activation from the commissioner’s exempt list following the resolution of child abuse charges filed against him.
The league also refused to take part in any discussions of a settlement regarding Peterson’s playing status, per Garafolo.
According to the report, the league told Peterson’s representatives that a decision would “be forthcoming” and that the running back would be notified when a decision had been made.
AP was suspended from the league indefinitely after he was accused of abusing his son during a visit.
His missed a total of 8 games so far.
