Report: Adrian Peterson’s Son Not Expected To Survive


The heartbreaking story involving Adrian Peterson’s son seems to be taking a turn for the worse.

CityPages is reporting that Peterson’s two year old son is not expected to survive his attack at the hands of Joseph Patterson. 

Tragically, our source says Adrian’s son is not expected to survive his injuries. The plan is to take him off a ventilator this evening and donate his organs.

“Unless God provides some sort of miracle, he’s gone,” she said.

The blog also reported there was some initial confusion as to whether this child was Peterson’s because it was a secret and Adrian actually doesn’t know for sure if the boy is his.

A woman in Sioux Falls who is close to the mother involved in the tragic story about Adrian Peterson’s two-year-old son says the fact AP had a child living in Sioux Falls was “a secret.”

She said the mother of the child had a casual relationship with AP when she lived in the Twin Cities (she’s since moved to South Dakota). She became pregnant, but wasn’t sure about the identify of the father “until just recently.” A paternity test revealed that the dad was indeed Adrian Peterson. Our source says Peterson isn’t identified as the father on the birth certificate of the child, who goes by his mother’s last name.

Before the paternity test, the mother knew the father “could’ve been one of two guys,” she said.

Our source says Adrian was aware he was the father of the child before this week’s tragic incident. Previous reports have indicated Adrian only has two children, Adrian Jr. and a daughter named Adeja.

“Why would he be in Sioux Falls, missing practice, if it wasn’t his kid?” she said.
