Adrian Peterson attends son's funeral

  • Adrian Peterson missed practice on Wednesday in order to attend his 2-year old son's funeral. 

    Tyrese Robert Ruffin died after being beaten by his mother's boyfriend who already had a history of physical violence. 

    Peterson wasn't aware that he was the child's father until two months ago. He had been working with his mother since then, trying to support the family financially and meet the child. 

    Peterson mentioned that it was difficult to attend the funeral; he plans on playing against the Giants on Monday.
