>>Decision On Vikings' Peterson Could Come Tuesday

(Undated) -- A decision on the appeal by Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson could come as early as Tuesday. ESPN reports Peterson's appeals hearing via conference call lasted around 30 minutes on Monday and a decision on the matter may come Tuesday. Peterson is hoping to be reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list. He has been on the list and has not played since Week One of the season while the legal process played out in his child-abuse case.

The former NFL MVP pleaded no contest in his case and was given two years' probation, a four-thousand fine and 80 hours of community service after disciplining his four-year-old son with a tree branch earlier this year. The Players' Association filed an expedited, non-injury grievance last Monday to get Peterson put back on the Vikings' roster immediately. The 29-year-old could still face discipline from the league under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy.
