MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has confirmed reports that he didn't find out about his two-year-old son in South Dakota until two months ago.
He missed Wednesday's practice to attend the boy's funeral.
Two-year-old Tyrese died last Friday in a Sioux Falls hospital.
The boyfriend of the child's mother is charged with assault and battery but more serious charges could be filed.
Peterson says after he found out about his son, he'd planned on seeing him and was helping the boy's mom financially.
