Nov. 21 1:21 PM PT2:21 PM MT3:21 PM CT4:21 PM ET21:21 GMT5:21 AM 北京时间2:21 PM MST4:21 PM EST3:21 PM CT1:21 UAE (+1)16:21 ET19:21 - Adrian Peterson's hearing for the appeal of his suspension will be held on Dec. 2, and it will not be in front of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Analysis: The NFL announced Friday that longtime hearing officer Harold Henderson will preside over the proceedings involving the Minnesota Vikings star running back. Goodell has the authority to decide whether to hear the appeal himself or appoint someone else. Peterson has not played since the opening week of the season while dealing with child abuse allegations in Texas.
Nov. 20 8:52 AM PT9:52 AM MT10:52 AM CT11:52 AM ET16:52 GMT12:52 AM 北京时间9:52 AM MST11:52 AM EST10:52 AM CT20:52 UAE11:52 ET14:52 - The NFL players' union has appealed the league's suspension of Peterson.
Analysis: In a letter to its player representatives and executive committee obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday, the NFLPA calls Commissioner Roger Goodell's punishment "unprecedented, arbitrary, and unlawful" and demands an independent, neutral arbitrator hears Peterson's case.
Nov. 15 3:34 PM PT4:34 PM MT5:34 PM CT6:34 PM ET23:34 GMT7:34 AM 北京时间4:34 PM MST6:34 PM EST5:34 PM CT3:34 UAE (+1)18:34 ET21:34 - The NFL has suspended Peterson without pay for at least the rest of the season.
Analysis: The league said Tuesday it informed the Minnesota Vikings running back he will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15 for violating the NFL personal conduct policy. The NFL Players Association quickly announced its plan to appeal the punishment. Peterson pleaded no contest Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless assault in Texas for injuries to his 4-year-old son he was disciplining. He had been on paid leave from the team since Sept. 17.
Nov. 6 11:42 AM PT12:42 PM MT1:42 PM CT2:42 PM ET19:42 GMT3:42 AM 北京时间12:42 PM MST2:42 PM EST1:42 PM CT23:42 UAE14:42 ET17:42 - Peterson will meet with the NFL on Monday about possible reinstatement with the Minnesota Vikings.
Analysis: Peterson has been on the commissioner's exempt list since Sept. 18 following his indictment for felony child abuse in Texas. The running back pleaded no contest last week to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless assault, freeing him from the court system provided he fulfills his probation terms.
Nov. 4 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET20:00 GMT4:00 AM 北京时间1:00 PM MST3:00 PM EST2:00 PM CT0:00 UAE (+1)15:00 ET18:00 - Peterson avoided jail time on Tuesday in a plea agreement reached with prosecutors to resolve his child abuse case.
Analysis: Peterson pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault under the deal that Montgomery County state District Judge Kelly Case approved during a court hearing. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.
Oct. 9 11:55 AM PT12:55 PM MT1:55 PM CT2:55 PM ET18:55 GMT2:55 AM 北京时间11:55 AM MST1:55 PM EST1:55 PM CT22:55 UAE14:55 ET17:55 - The hearing on whether to remove the judge in the felony child abuse case against Peterson has been pushed back.
Analysis: Mary Flood, a spokeswoman for Peterson attorney Rusty Hardin, said Tuesday the recusal hearing for Montgomery County District Judge Kelly Case has been rescheduled for Oct. 22. Retired Tarrant County District Judge Jeff Walker will preside. Peterson is charged with injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son. A not guilty plea is expected.
Oct. 7 12:08 PM PT1:08 PM MT2:08 PM CT3:08 PM ET19:08 GMT3:08 AM 北京时间12:08 PM MST2:08 PM EST2:08 PM CT23:08 UAE15:08 ET18:08 - A spokeswoman for Peterson's attorney says the NFL player plans to plead not guilty to a child abuse charge during his first court appearance in Texas since his indictment last month. Peterson was scheduled to be in court Wednesday in Conroe, located north of Houston.
Analysis: Mary Flood, a spokeswoman for Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, said Tuesday that if asked at the hearing, Peterson will plead not guilty to a charge of injury to a child. Peterson says he never intended to harm his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a tree branch earlier this year.
Sep. 19 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET19:34 GMT3:34 AM 北京时间12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST2:34 PM CT23:34 UAE15:34 ET18:34 - The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that authorities in Minnesota have filed a petition seeking a protective order for the son of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. The petition asks a judge to block Peterson from using any corporal punishment or physical discipline on the 4-year-old boy. It also would block any unauthorized or unsupervised contact.
Analysis: Peterson faces a child abuse charge in Texas for using a wooden switch to spank the boy in May. He's said he meant only to discipline the boy and not hurt him. The order says Peterson told investigators in Texas that he also used a belt to spank his son. Hennepin County authorities have also asked that the order be suspended until the Texas case is resolved.
Sep. 15 8:02 AM PT9:02 AM MT10:02 AM CT11:02 AM ET15:02 GMT11:02 PM 北京时间8:02 AM MST10:02 AM EST10:02 AM CT19:02 UAE11:02 ET14:02 - The Minnesota Vikings have placed Peterson on the exempt/commissioner's permission list, a move that will require him to stay away from the team while he addresses child abuse charges.
Analysis: The Vikings made the announcement early Wednesday morning after initially deciding that Peterson could play with the team while the legal process played out. Peterson is charged with a felony for using a wooden switch to spank his 4-year-old son. The Vikings came under heavy criticism for their initial stance. And several sponsors responded by either suspending their deals with the Vikings or severing ties with Peterson.
Sep. 15 8:51 AM PT9:51 AM MT10:51 AM CT11:51 AM ET15:51 GMT11:51 PM 北京时间8:51 AM MST10:51 AM EST10:51 AM CT19:51 UAE11:51 ET14:51 - Peterson will make his first court appearance Wednesday in Texas on a child abuse charge. Peterson is expected to enter a plea at the hearing in Conroe, Texas, after his indictment for reckless or negligent injury to a child. Peterson faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty.
Analysis: Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, has said he's accused of using a wooden switch to spank one of his sons. Hardin has said Peterson is cooperating with authorities and "used the same kind of discipline" that he experienced growing up. After benching him Sunday, the Vikings announced Monday that they had reinstated Peterson for the coming week.
Sep. 15 10:58 AM PT11:58 AM MT12:58 PM CT1:58 PM ET17:58 GMT1:58 AM 北京时间10:58 AM MST12:58 PM EST12:58 PM CT21:58 UAE13:58 ET16:58 - Peterson has issued a statement after being charged with child abuse and says he is "sorry about the hurt I have brought to my child."
Analysis: Peterson issued his statement on Monday a few hours after the Minnesota Vikings reinstated him to the team. Peterson was charged last weekend after he struck his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of discipline earlier this summer.
Sep. 14 8:31 AM PT9:31 AM MT10:31 AM CT11:31 AM ET15:31 GMT11:31 PM 北京时间8:31 AM MST10:31 AM EST10:31 AM CT19:31 UAE11:31 ET14:31 - Matt Asiata will start in Peterson's place for Minnesota, with the star running back inactive for the Vikings against New England.
Analysis: The Vikings, as promised, shelved Peterson on Sunday against the Patriots following his indictment on a charge of child abuse.
Sep. 12 2:49 PM PT3:49 PM MT4:49 PM CT5:49 PM ET21:49 GMT5:49 AM 北京时间2:49 PM MST4:49 PM EST4:49 PM CT1:49 UAE (+1)17:49 ET20:49 - Peterson was booked and released from a Texas jail on a child abuse charge early Saturday, capping a tumultuous week for the NFL, which was already facing heavy criticism for its handling of a domestic violence case involving another star player.
Analysis: The star running back won't play Sunday in Minnesota's home opener against New England. Shortly after the news of the indictment broke Friday, the Vikings announced that Peterson had been benched for the game against the Patriots.
Aug. 28 11:23 AM PT12:23 PM MT1:23 PM CT2:23 PM ET18:23 GMT2:23 AM 北京时间11:23 AM MST1:23 PM EST1:23 PM CT22:23 UAE14:23 ET17:23 - Peterson is reiterating that he hopes to remain in Minnesota until he retires in response to a report that he reached out to Jerry Jones about playing for the Dallas Cowboys this summer. The 29-year-old Peterson is in the fourth year of a seven-year contract.
Analysis: Peterson issued a statement on Thursday after ESPN reported that he asked Jones about playing in Dallas. Peterson says it "was a casual conversation between NFL colleagues in which I never indicated I wanted to leave the Vikings. I have always said I understand the NFL is a business but that I would love to retire as a Viking."
Apr. 9 12:28 PM PT1:28 PM MT2:28 PM CT3:28 PM ET19:28 GMT3:28 AM 北京时间12:28 PM MST2:28 PM EST2:28 PM CT23:28 UAE15:28 ET18:28 - Peterson is still working his way back from offseason groin surgery. He says he is eager to rejoin his Minnesota Vikings teammates for the team's offseason program once his body is ready.
Analysis: Peterson played in 14 games last season and rushed for 1,266 yards and 10 touchdowns. But he injured his groin in November and Peterson says that contributed to a foot injury that slowed him toward the end of the season. The Vikings opened their offseason conditioning program under new coach Mike Zimmer on Monday. Peterson has not been present because he is still rehabbing in Texas.
