According to Pro Football Talk, suspended Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will receive a hearing on his status today, with a decision coming by the end of the week. The hearing, which will be held under arbitrator Shyam Das, comes after the NFL Players Association filed an expedited grievance with the NFL requesting the immediate reinstatement of the star running back according to ESPN. Under the league’s collective bargaining agreement, a hearing must be held within seven days of the filing of the grievance, after which an independent arbiter has five days to render a decision.
