After deactivating Adrian Peterson prior to their week 2 game against the Pats, the Vikings organization quickly changed their mind. I wonder if it is has anything to do with the crushing 30-7 defeat handed to them by New England. The reason for originally deactivating him was due to Peterson's indictment for allegedly abusing his son with a switch.

Here Is The Statement From Vikings Owners Zygi and Mark Wilf:

Today’s decision was made after significant thought, discussion and consideration. As evidenced by our decision to deactivate Adrian from yesterday’s game, this is clearly a very important issue. On Friday, we felt it was in the best interests of the organization to step back, evaluate the situation, and not rush to judgment given the seriousness of this matter. At that time, we made the decision that we felt was best for the Vikings and all parties involved.

The question now is whether or not the NFL will take action to prevent Peterson from playing. Of course Roger Goodell is facing enough criticism already due to his handling of the Ray Rice incident. This season has already started off in a very negative light with 2 other players being charged for domestic violence and Adrian Peterson's situation. These incidents have caused distrust and a loss of respect for some of the league's best players. Whatever the NFL decides to do, it needs to be big enough that it will deter these players from committing violent acts.
