The decision has come out from the NFL. Adrian Peterson's appeal of his suspension has been denied and will be suspended until April 2015.

Appeal officer Harold Henderson made the decision and the results were announced late Friday afternoon.

According to Kevin Seifert of ESPN, the NFL Players Association will push the case to federal court.

The timetable of how quick the NFLPA could get the matter situated is not known, but the chances of Peterson playing again in 2014 is very unlikely.
