Glazer: Vikings were 'taken aback' by Adrian Peterson's suspension

BY foxsports • November 23, 2014

The Minnesota Vikings were surprised that Adrian Peterson was suspended for the rest of the season, according to FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer.

The Vikings were "a little taken aback" by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Peterson until April 2015.

Peterson's appeal will be heard by Harold Henderson, a former NFL executive who routinely resolves appeals under the league's substance-abuse, PED and personal conduct policies. He most recently upheld Josh Gordon's 10-game suspension in the offseason.

Glazer said the Vikings are ready to play out the season without Peterson, even as he awaits appeal.
