BREAKING: Adrian Peterson suspension overturned

Posted: Updated:

In what many will consider a surprise, a U.S. District Judge has ruled in favor of Minnesota Vikings running Adrian Peterson in his petition to vacate an arbitrator's decision that made him ineligible to play in the NFL until April 15.

Judge David Doty says in his order that NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson overstepped his authority in suspending Peterson according to rules agreed upon by the league and the players union, according to KARE in Minneapolis.

Doty is ordering the matter sent back to the arbitration stage.

At this point it is unclear whether Peterson will be immediately reinstated.
