TMZ said, "Child Protective Services confirms they are working on a case involving Peterson and an 11-year-old boy."

Matt Vensel, Vikings reporter for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, says that Peterson missed practice Thursday, but was back with the team Friday.


Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that Peterson will now have to turn himself in to Texas authorities, which makes his status for Sundays game against the Patriots unclear.

The Vikings released the following statement on Friday:

The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrians attorney Rusty Hardin.

In 2013, Petersons 2-year-old son Tyrese was killed after being beaten by 27-year-old Joseph Robert Patterson in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Patterson faces murder and child abuse charges.

Peterson posted the following message on Twitter earlier on Friday. It is unclear if this tweet is related to the indictment.

BuzzFeed News reached out to the Montgomery County District Court and will update this story.
