Nike Suspends Deal With Adrian PetersonNike has suspended its sponsorship deal with Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson following child abuse allegations. The Beaverton-based shoemaker issued a statement Wednesday morning that said Nike "in no way condones child abuse or domestic violence of any kind and has shared our concerns with the NFL." The move comes the same day that the Vikings took Peterson off the team's active roster while he deals with a felony child-abuse charge in Texas. He is accused of injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch earlier this year. Peterson has an Oct. 8 court appearance scheduled in Montgomery County, outside of Houston, on a felony charge of injury to a child. Peterson has taken responsibility for the incident, insisting he meant no harm to the child. BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) – September 18, 2014
