The Vikings have no plans to part ways with running back Adrian Peterson, according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post

According to Hubbuch, Peterson's future with the team will be re-evaluated after this season by GM Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer

Peterson was suspended Tuesday for the remainder of this season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Peterson pleaded no contest to child abuse charges in Texas earlier this month. He will appeal the suspension.
