Hours after the Vikings reactivated Adrian Peterson and announced that he'd be playing next week, another child abuse accusation has come to light.
The second case involves another four-year-old son of Peterson's, from a different mother than in the first case.
According to Troy Renck, linebackers Von Miller (groin) and Lerentee McCray (knee) are expected to play at Seattle on Sunday.
Per Renck, John Fox offered no official update on the players' injuries.
Once again, the NFL's new drug policy is said to be just a day away, with Wes Welker's reinstatement to follow.
According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, the new policy is expected to be approved by the NFL within the next 24 hours.
According to Jeff Legwold, linebacker Lerentee McCray will undergo an MRI for a right knee injury that may cost him "some time," whatever that means.
Von Miller sat out the Chiefs' final drive with a groin injury, and will be evaluated on Monday.
The league's new drug policy proposal was not ratified on Saturday due to reported unresolved issues.
As a result, Wes Welker has not yet been reinstated, and will not be active for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Denver figures to keep a roster spot open for Welker until he's reinstated.
The NFL has what appears to be another horrifying scandal on its hands, as Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted for child abuse in Texas.
Peterson allegedly whipped his four-year-old son with a tree branch as punishment for having pushed another of Peterson's children during a video game.
The NFLPA voted on Friday to approve a new drug policy that includes HGH testing, increased penalties for drunk driving, and a higher threshold for positive marijuana tests.
According to Mike Klis, Broncos wideout Wes Welker will be reinstated on either Friday night or sometime Saturday, once the agreement is ratified.
Welker had been serving a four-game suspension for a positive result for amphetamines, which he'd allegedly taken while attending the Kentucky Derby.
According to Mike Klis, the league's union reps will vote on the new drug policy proposal on Friday afternoon.
Upon approval, Klis says Wes Welker "would be among several" players to be reinstated, suggesting that it's more than just Welker and Josh Gordon.

Well, that would explain the roster vacancy.
The Broncos have filled their practice squad vacancy by re-signing wideout Nathan Palmer, who was on the active roster for Week 1 (but was a game day inactive).
Oddly, they have not yet filled the opening on their 53-man roster, perhaps holding out hope for a last-minute reinstatement of Wes Welker.
But Welker cannot practice during his suspension, so we'd expect Palmer to end up back on the active roster within the next day or two.
