Adrian Peterson suited up for Minnesota's game against Carolina on Sunday, as he promised. But he couldn't help the Vikings avoid a 35-10 loss to Carolina. One of the star running back's sons, a 2-year-old in South Dakota, died Friday after an alleged attack in a child abuse case. He declined to speak specifically about the situation following practice that day, but reiterated the comfort he's found from the game over a number of tragic and challenging circumstances in his life. Peterson wound up with 62 yards rushing and 21 yards on three receptions.
