In NFL limbo for the last five-plus months, Adrian Peterson's future with the Minnesota Vikings is still in question. The path toward resolution of his status has been cleared, though the clash between league and the union over the personal conduct policy persists. Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL were handed a second high-profile legal defeat Thursday, when U.S. District Judge David Doty overruled league arbitrator Harold Henderson's December denial of the six-time Pro Bowl running back's appeal. Doty ruled that Henderson ''failed to meet his duty'' in considering Peterson's punishment, for the child abuse charge that brought national backlash for the league on the heels of the bungled handling of the assault case involving former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.
