CONROE, Texas (AP) - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's first court appearance in Texas on a child abuse charge has been delayed until October. Peterson has been indicted on a charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child and faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty. He says he never intended to harm his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings are reinstating Adrian Peterson this week after he was charged with child abuse. They say he'll play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Peterson was benched during a 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots last weekend after he was charged for striking his 4-year-old son with a tree branch this summer.
