Adrian Peterson To Miss Vikings Training Camp For Monday's Court Appearance

It's been almost a month since Adrian Peterson was arrested in Houston for resisting arrest during a small scuffle inside of a nightclub, and the court date is finally here. Unfortunately, it came during the Minnesota Vikings training camp.

On Monday, Peterson will spend his day in court at the Harris County Criminal Court in Texas and will miss a day from the team.

Peterson is still technically on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the Vikings anyway, so his contributions to training camp would probably not have amounted to all that much. He's still gunning for an eventual return date before the first game of the season in September, but with preseason starting and him being forced to miss camp dates it might be less likely than hoped for originally.

Whatever verdict happens to come down in the arrest case might have some bearing on it as well.
