Just when you think the world and the people in it can't stoop any lower they do.

Adrian Peterson's son has died from injuries he sustained in a beating from his mother's (Peterson's ex mate's) boyfriend on Wednesday.

Police have arrested the suspect and are holding him on a $750,000 cash bond.

Peterson obviously devastated, declared that he would play in the Vikings' game Sunday.

In a statement given to the press Peterson said that football "was a release" that he needed to help him cope with the loss of his son.

Peterson has received sympathy from around the NFL including current and past players like Terrell Owens who said he could not imagine what Peterson is going through. 

More details about the crime are yet to be released.

  • My heart is with you AD. Huge amounts of prayers and support to AD and his family. RIP
  • His punishment should be 15 minutes in a jail cell with ap. piece of sh!t.

    Oh and good luck panthers he's hard enough to stop when he isn't pissed.
