NFL Reinstates Vikings RB Adrian Peterson

NFL Shield(MINNEAPOLIS) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell informed Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson on Thursday that he has been reinstated.

In a letter to the six-time Pro Bowler, Goodell said Peterson will be an active NFL player and may participate in all scheduled activities with the Vikings effective on Friday.

Peterson was suspended last season after he was charged with felony child abuse in Texas. He accepted a plea deal, which reduced the charge to a misdemeanor.

Goodell wrote that Peterson will have to fulfill his terms of the plea deal of counseling as well as adhere to the league’s new personal conduct policy to avoid further punishment.
