The NFL announced Friday that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's appeal of a league suspension for a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy has been denied. Per ESPN:
quote:

Peterson's appeal was heard by former NFL executive Harold Henderson last week in Washington, D.C. Henderson was appointed by commissioner Roger Goodell as arbitrator to hear the sides' cases and issue a ruling.

In upholding the NFL's initial ruling, Henderson concluded that Peterson "has not demonstrated that the process and procedures surrounding his discipline were not fair and consistent." Wrote Henderson: "He was afforded all the protections and rights to which he is entitled, and I find no basis to vacate or reduce the discipline."
ESPN also reports that Peterson is expected to appeal the arbitrator's decision in federal court.
