(Reuters) - The National Football's League's Minnesota Vikings said Monday they have reinstated Adrian Peterson despite his indictment for negligent injury to a child charges.

"To be clear, we take very seriously any matter that involves the welfare of a child," Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf said in a statement. "At this time, however, we believe this is a matter of due process and we should allow the legal system to proceed so we can come to the most effective conclusions and then determine the appropriate course of action.
