>>Report: Peterson Investigated For Separate Abuse Incident

(Houston, TX) -- The attorney for Adrian Peterson says reports of the Minnesota Vikings running back being investigated for a second case of alleged child abuse are "simply not true." KHOU-TV in Houston reported Monday Peterson is being investigated for a separate incident with another son. The television station posted a Twitter picture of a young boy with his face blotted out but showing a large Mickey Mouse bandage over his right eye. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the allegation was "unsubstantiated and was shopped around to authorities in two states over a year ago and nothing came of it."

Peterson was reinstated by the Vikings on Monday and the former NFL MVP is expected to practice this week and play Sunday against New Orleans. He was indicted last week on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child for allegedly "spanking" his four-year-old son with a tree branch. He issued a statement Monday saying he never meant to cause his son harm and is, without a doubt, not a child abuser.

>>Radisson Suspends Sponsorship With Vikings

Radisson adds that it will closely follow the situation and evaluate the facts and circumstances. The Vikings re-instated Peterson on Monday despite his indictment for allegedly hitting his four-year-old son.

"RG3" is calling it "positive news" and is optimistic he can return to the playing field this season.

>>Chiefs' Charles Has High Ankle Sprain

(Kansas City, MO) -- Kansas City Chiefs star running back Jamaal Charles is dealing with a high ankle sprain. Head coach Andy Reid says the injury doesn't "look to be a real severe one," but it is not clear if Charles will miss Week Three's matchup with Miami. The three-time Pro Bowler suffered the sprain on a rush in the first quarter of the Chiefs' 24-17 loss to Denver on Sunday. Charles has nine carries for just 23 yards in KC's two losses this season. Safety Eric Berry, who also left Sunday's game, is suffering from an ankle sprain as well.
