Peterson faces up to two years in prison after being indicted last week in Texas on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child after authorities said he hit his 4-year-old son with a switch. He is due in court on Oct. 8 for an arraignment.
Hardy was found guilty of assaulting and threatening an ex-girlfriend, but he is appealing the conviction and is due in court Nov. 17. Peterson and Hardy were placed on the NFL’s commissioner exempt list until their court cases are resolved.
