Adrian Peterson has spent time in South Dakota this week dealing with a family issue.
The Vikings have not commented publicly on Peterson's absence. However, a Sioux Falls, S.D. sports columnist offered the following perspective Thursday afternoon:
Adrian Peterson is still in Sioux Falls, dealing with medical issue involving young family member that will likely be a police matter.
