Anybody know where Peterson lives during the season? I know little Adrian is about 2 years old. Don't know if he and the mother are together, so I wonder if perhaps a new boyfriend has something to do with this.

At risk of sounding insensitive about a very serious issue, I know full well this can be far more important than football, but if something like that is the case, the Panthers better get ready, AP's gonna run like a man possessed on Sunday.

I believe this is the douchebag in question.

Dude... It's sounding like AP's kid has passed on according to several people on Rube Chat anyway. If this is the case, he's not playing and he shouldn't.

This is the story that some people are linking AD to.

Hoping that whatever the situation is, that the kid comes through it OK.

What an awful story, had a tough time reading it. The entire Peterson family are in my thoughts.

How does a supposedly "grown man" beat-up a 2 year old kid? Makes my stomach turn.

Way too much of this negative stuff goes on in our sick society today! I hope the team rallies around this young boy and is motivated to have a convincing victory Sunday. As for the man who beat this young child, he needs to be brought to justice.

It was sickening reading about this. My thoughts are with Peterson and is family. No one should have to go through something like this because of some idiot.

Apparently it is not AP Jr. in the hospital, but instead a secret son he had that recently moved to Sioux Falls with the mother and scumbag boyfriend.

Did his boy die?

I don't think he has died yet but reports are stating that he has not had any brain activity for 12 hours and isn't expected to survive. He is currently on life support.

Don't know for sure, but it sounds like he's hanging on by a thread. I haven't heard much since noon though.

I am anti-death penalty except for those who mess with kids, either physically or sexually. They just don't change, and we need to protect our children from them. God, this just makes me sick to my stomach, I have 5 kids, and I cannot even imagine what it feels like to deal with this.

Peterson: "I Will Be Playing Sunday" (http://www.vikings.com/media-vault/videos/Peterson-I-Will-Be-Playing-Sunday/04652f86-14f7-4088-a7e2-c6ee8b0f39a7)

You couldn't blame him for not playing but he words were "I will be playing Sunday without a doubt" I would not want to be the first defender to try and tackle him on Sunday.

You see this with a lot of athletes who are hit with a death in the family (Brett Farve and Torrey Smith come to mind, Farve with his father, Smith with his brother). They want to get on the field and have something "normal" for 2-3 hours, otherwise the grief is overwhelming.

I am disabled, and do not have this option; I instead picked up a Tom Clancy book I had read like 10 times and submerged myself into it for a few weeks when my father passed. It was the only time I had where I did not have to stare at the huge hole in my life.

I hope AD is playing this week because he wants to be around his friends on the team and use it as a distraction...and not because he feels like has to for anybody else's sake.

It's horrific, whatever AD wants to do now is the correct decision, I really feel for him.

I'm sickened by this news. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Peterson family.

No parent should ever have to bury their child. As mentioned already, if AD does decide to play Sunday I hope it's for himself and the healing process. In no way should he feel he's letting anyone down or "needs" to play. What he's dealing with is one of the toughest things any person can go through.

May that little boy rest in peace and comfort as he moves on towards a better place much too soon.

Can't describe how shocked I am by this. Thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family. Suddenly football isn't that important anymore.

I'd like 5 minutes with the Boyfriend.

Adrian won't say that. He's too good of a person. He's one of the very few athletes that I admire and respect as a person, not just an athlete.

But I can say it.

What I can't do is speak about what i'd like to DO to the Boyfriend. It's almost as if even speaking about would somehow tarnish Adrian and his family...and they don't deserve that.

This is an unspeakable wrong. I literally cannot fathom what I would do if it were my child. I cannot imagine how Adrian must feel.

But I hope that he knows that we all grieve with him.

My daughter is 2 1/2 and i can not even imagin what i would do to a person that even used a forceful shove let alone beat her to death..

my thoughts and sympathies to the peterson family.. and my hopes and courage to AP that he contineues to do the right thing.. and stays away from the temptation of doing the wrong one.. i'm not sure i'd be able to resist..

as far as AP playing and being around the team. i'm sure it's the best place for him at this moment. help him focus on something else.. something other then the pain and frustration that i'm sure are building up.

South Dakota does have the death penalty, however I think the "prison system" might not let him see that day & that the inmates there will teach him what it's like to be assaulted and I don't mean sexually.
