EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's son has passed away.

Earlier on Friday Peterson returned to the team after missing Thursday's practice to tend to a personal matter.

Peterson was on the field for stretching with the Vikings on Friday morning. He left for the locker room briefly during special teams drills, which he doesn't participate in, and returned later. The team has not specified Peterson's absence on Thursday.

His father, Nelson Peterson, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that one of Peterson's sons was in critical condition in a hospital in South Dakota.
