Nike has cut ties with a former Sooner standout who was indicted for child abuse.

The sportswear giant had already been distancing itself from Adrian Peterson following the indictment.

However, a spokesman told CNN in a written statement, “Our only comment is that Adrian Peterson is no longer a Nike athlete.”

Peterson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault charges after whipping his 4-year-old son with a “switch.”

The former NFL MVP also lost his Castor Motor Oil sponsorship.

He is still suspended from the Minnesota Vikings and is banned from team facilities.
