(NEWSER)– The Minnesota Vikings have decided to hit star running back Adrian Peterson with a ban until the legal issues over him hitting his 4-year-old son with a stick have been resolved.

"We have decided this is the appropriate course of action for the organization and for Adrian," the team's owners said in a statement issued early this morning.
