Adrian Peterson could discuss plea deal prior to court date
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson could discuss a plea deal prior to his October 8 court date, according to CBSSports.com Football Insider Jason LaCanfora. 

If that were the case, it's unclear how it would impact Peterson's availability. The Vikings have said Peterson would not return until his legal issues have been resolved, but the NFL can still opt to punish Peterson based on the findings from his case. As LaCanfora notes, if the case goes to trial, it could take months before it's resolved.
