To 'get it right,' Vikings put Peterson on leave (Yahoo Sports) - Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was declared out, back in, then out again as he faces a felony child-abuse charge in Texas. ''We made a mistake,'' Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said, ''and we needed to get this right.'' Vikings executives emerged Wednesday from a late-night deliberation to voice regret of their initial decision to let Peterson play this week after sitting him for a game once he was charged with injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch. Now Peterson is back on paid leave through a special roster exemption granted by the NFL, the same protocol cited by the Carolina Panthers as they sat defensive end Greg Hardy a few hours later while he deals with his own domestic violence case. ''We will support Adrian during this legal and personal process, but we firmly believe this is the right decision,'' said Wilf, the team's co-owner with younger brother Mark Wilf.

Jackets ready to move on if Johansen doesn't sign (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 17, 2014, 8:38 pm]
Talks between the Columbus Blue Jackets and leading scorer Ryan Johansen are clearly at a contentious impasse. Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, said the young star left Columbus on Wednesday afternoon - a day before the start of training camp. ''We just thought it was a good opportunity that he leave town and not be a distraction to his teammates.'' John Davidson, the team's director of hockey operations, and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen separately said ''enough is enough'' after what they contended were offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years were refused by the restricted free agent center. We're trying to be very fair to a good young man in Ryan Johansen who's got a bright future here.
