Rapoport: 'Suspension looms' for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson

Ian Rapoport, Twitter - [Full Article]

NFL says Adrian Peterson can have a hearing prior to issuance of discipline. He’ll remain on the Commissioner’s exempt list until completion.

Peterson will be reviewed under the Personal Conduct Policy. NFL requests He’s asked to submit relevant info & meet with experts.

Adrian Peterson being on paid-leave since his situation arose is not considered discipline, source points out. Suspension looms.

When will the Peterson situation be resolved? Could be weeks. Means playing next week unlikely.

Fantasy Impact: 

The league apparently doesn't consider paid leave as a suspension, so Peterson is facing another suspension. Initial domestic violence violations would garner a six-game ban, so if the two sides don't work out a compromise, Peterson could miss the remainder of the season. We would recommending holding Peterson for at least another week to see if any progress is made.
