Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson NFL

(Christian Post)  The 2-year-old son of Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings running back, has died Friday afternoon in a South Dakota hospital after suffering horrendous injuries from an aggravated assault by Joseph Robert Patterson, the boyfriend of the boy’s mother.

News broke earlier on Friday that Peterson’s son had been hospitalized in critical condition following the shocking beating. The NFL player missed training with his team on Thursday to attend to what was only described as “a private matter.”

The RB returned to his team’s training camp on Friday where he said, “I should start off by saying I really appreciate all the support that I’ve been receiving from fans, the Vikings organization.”

He went on to ask that his privacy be respected, and he also confirmed that he planned to play in the Vikings’ game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

He told the media: “You know, football is something I will always fall back on. It gets me through tough times. Just being around the guys in here, that’s what I need in my life, guys supporting me, and just being able to go out and play this game I love. Things that I go through, I’ve said a thousand times, it helps me play this game to a different level. I’m able to kind of release a lot of my stress through this sport, so that’s what I plan on doing.”

Peterson’s teammates have rallied around their star player by offering messages of support and prayers.
