WASHINGTON – After being suspended for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy earlier this year, All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson appealed the league’s punishment.

On Friday, the league announced that his appeal was denied.

NFL executive Harold Henderson said that Peterson “had not demonstrated that the process and procedures surrounding his discipline were not fair and consistent.”

However, this may not be the end the case.

According to ESPN, Peterson may appeal the decision in federal court.

Peterson has not taken the field for the Minnesota Vikings since the first game of the season.

At that point, he was charged with child abuse in Texas.

The charges were filed after Peterson hit his 4-year-old son with a switch as a form of discipline.

He was placed on paid leave before he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault.

Peterson was suspended without pay for the rest of the season.
