The Minnesota Vikings announced early Wednesday that they have put running back Adrian Peterson on the exempt-commissioner's list, meaning he must stay away from all team activities as he faces child-abuse charges, The Associated Press reports.
The Vikings previously previously had said Peterson could play.
Peterson was indicted by a grand jury on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child on Friday. Multiple media sources reported that the charges stem from Peterson disciplining his son with a switch.
Additionally, ESPN reported Monday that Peterson was accused in a separate incident involving another son, but no charges were filed.

Thousands of tourists, vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, have been scrambling to get out of the area after Hurricane Odile hit.
One of those tourists was Ashley Talbot, 28, of San Francisco.
Her mother Mona Talbot spoke to KTVU Tuesday night. She said she'd had spotty contact with her daughter after the hurricane hit, but had lost all communication on Monday night and had not heard anything for more than 24 hours.
"Oh it's awful. You don't know what to think, you know. You always start thinking the worst," said Talbot. "But I keep remembering they're at the Hilton so they're probably safe."
Ashley was in Cabo for a bachelorette party with 13 friends. Mona said 11 of the women had gotten a flight out to Mazatlán earlier.
At the end of her interview with KTVU, a series of text messages came in from one of her daughter's travel partners. They indicated the three women had gotten to Tijuana by military plane and were headed to San Diego.
Anxiety and frustration turned to relief and joy, and tears of happiness flowed down Mona's face.
"That's wonderful. At least they're out of there -- that's fantastic," said Talbot.
As of late Tuesday night, the group had made it to San Diego.

National Park Service is warning visitors to the Golden Gate Bridge that they are being targeted by burglars.
KTVU was there just minutes after a burglar broke into a rental car at Battery Spencer in the Marin Headlands. The three victims from Austria say they were on the way to the airport, and stopped for just a few minutes to take one last look at the bridge.
They say the burglar made off with "a lot of stuff," but didn't get their passports.
Alexandra Picavet says burglars’ prowl parking areas on the north and south sides of the bridge, looking specifically for rental cars.
"The more likely car to be broken into is a rental car, especially one that has a bar tag or something that advertises that it's a rental car," said Picavet.
She said burglars are looking for luggage or any valuables left in the cabin of the car, and she said it can happen in just seconds.
"You could literally be standing in that woodchip area, just a hundred yards away and they'll break into your car. It's very very fast."
Merton Chinen and his daughter Melinda are visiting the Bay Area from Hawaii, and say they made an error when they parked in the Battery East parking lot, just south of the Golden Gate Bridge.
"Well, we left our backpack in plain view, so anyone could see it looking out from the outside, so that wasn't very smart," said Chinen.
Picavet says at times the burglars can turn violent. In October 2012 a Park Police officer opened fire on a vehicle after the burglars he interrupted tried to run him down.
Picavet says the best option is for people to leave valuables at home or in their hotel, or take them with them every time they leave the rental vehicle. She also says it's not just tourists who should be on alert. With high profile events like Fleet Week in October drawing visitors from all over the Bay Area, everyone needs to be aware.
