Adrian Peterson has faced a lifetime of personal tragedies, running hard through each one


Adrian Peterson is one of the most popular players in the NFL, one of the most dominant, and sadly, one of the most tragic.

The 2012 league MVP has run through pain since he was a boy, and his latest anguish may be the most unfathomable. His 2-year-old son died Friday after an alleged assault by an acquaintance of the child’s mother.
