The Minnesota Vikings running back is facing a felony child-abuse charge.

He is accused of injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch earlier this year.

“Nike in no way condones child abuse or domestic violence of any kind and has shared our concerns with the NFL,” the company said in a statement. “We have suspended our contract with Adrian Peterson.”
