Adrian Peterson: NFL's discipline process has been unfair

BY foxsports • November 16, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- Adrian Peterson says he feels the NFL's process of assessing his case for potential discipline has been unfair.

The NFL Players Association issued a statement Sunday on behalf of Peterson, who has been sidelined since his indictment for child abuse in September.

Peterson recently pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge, freeing himself from the court system. The union filed a grievance with the league, demanding he be allowed to play until any punishment under the personal conduct policy is determined. The NFL has ruled that Peterson will remain on paid leave during that process.

An arbitrator will hear arguments from both sides Monday regarding the grievance.
