News: A tentative date of Dec. 1 has been set for Peterson's trial on a felony charge of injury to a child. Peterson's lawyers are pushing for an expedited trial and Peterson's case might begin in November if another case falls off the docket, ESPN reports. Impact: Peterson made his first Montgomery County, Texas court appearance as part of the proceedings, but did not enter a plea, as none was requested. Peterson's lawyer said he had planned to plea not guilty if asked. The ESPN report also cited a source close to Peterson that he is not looking for a plea deal. With a trial set for November at the earliest and a plea deal looking unlikely, it's a long shot that Peterson will play again this season, as the Vikings have said Peterson won't practice or play until his legal issues are resolved.(RotoWire, )
