Adrian Peterson, former NFL MVP, charged in child injury case: report

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is cooperating with police after being indicted on reckless or negligent injury to a child, according to a report from Fox 26 in Houston.

It's the latest incident in what's been a terrible week for the NFL.


On Tuesday, TMZ released a tape showing Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens striking his then-fiancee Janay Rice in a casino elevator.

Rice has since been suspended for the season.
