adrian petersonReports are coming down that Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson is currently away from the team while dealing with a “tragic” personal situation involving  a family member.

Per a report from ProFootballTalk:

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.

A man named Joseph Robert Patterson that has been charged with assault and aggravated battery of a two-year old in Sioux Falls may be linked to the Peterson ordeal. According to a report from Fox KMSP in Minnesota, the two-year old is Peterson’s son, and Patterson is the boyfriend of the child’s mother.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Peterson family. We will update with more information as it becomes available.
