Whenever anyone claims that they were roughed up by someone else, the question becomes whether the injuries required medical attention.
In the case of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the answer is yes.
Attorney Rusty Hardin, whose media tour began on Tuesday (and hopefully it will last into Wednesday, when yours truly guest-hosts The Dan Patrick Show), Peterson received treatment from a physician on Tuesday for facial injuries suffered during his Saturday arrest.
Hardin said on ESPN’s NFL Live and separately on KFAN radio that Peterson has bruises “from where he was hit” several times, and that his shoulders were “wrenched.” Peterson’s father, Nelson, has said that Adrian suffered a black eye.
