    Adrian Peterson's case for reinstatement following a plea deal of no contest to one count of misdemeanor reckless assault will be expedited and is expected to be heard this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports via Kevin Patra of

    Rapoport said on NFL Network's NFL GameDay Morning that while Peterson is facing a six-game suspension under the NFL's personal-conduct policy, it will likely be fewer than that with a compromise based on time served and loss of pay. Rapoport reports it's possible Peterson could return in December.

    The question, according to Rapoport, is whether the Vikings are eager to get the running back on the field.

    "The big problem, one big problem, is that there is an internal battle with the Minnesota Vikings," Rapoport said. "Some of their executives are divided on whether they want Adrian Paterson back immediately."
