Adrian Peterson suited up Sunday morning for the Vikings-Steelers match, just two days after his two-year-old son died. Peterson’s son died Friday after allegedly being beaten to death by his mother’s boyfriend. Peterson explained his decision to play via text to Fox’s Laura Okmin, writing “We mourn and grieve but heaven had the baddest welcoming party for my son. That knowledge gives me peace.” TMZ reported that Peterson met the boy for the first time when he was in the hospital, with Peterson apparently having learned he was the boy’s father two months ago.
