AP Explains Why He's Playing After Son's Death

Despite the terrible unexpected news of his son's death on Friday, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson decided to play today against the Carolina Panthers today. Why? Peterson explained...
quote:

“My brother died the night before the combine and I decided to go through with it. The same reason why I will play this week. You may ask why? God wants good to come from it. We mourn and grieve but heaven had the baddest welcoming party for my son. That knowledge gives me peace. I’m still hurt and feel the pain of life, but I’m able to function because of the peace and joy of knowing my loved ones are in a much better place.”
Prayers to AP and his family.

AP doesn't have to explain his "reasons" to anyone. Beyond football, whatever goes on in his life, and how he handles that, is none of our fricking business!

He's gotta be dying inside. What a terrible blow.
