SIOUX FALLS (KELO-AM) The 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson, died Friday of his injuries at a Sioux Falls hospital. He had been in critical condition with head injuries since Wednesday when police found him at an apartment at 6201 South Connie Avenue. They reported that the injuries were consistent with child abuse and charged 27-year-old Joseph Patterson, the boyfriend of the child's mother. He faces up to 40 years in prison.

Earlier Friday, Peterson told the media that he was still planning to play Sunday's game because he says football helps him through tough times. It is unclear whether Peterson knew his son had died when he announced his decision to play.
