Overshadowed by Josh Freeman being named the starter for the Vikings' Monday night clash with the Giants in New York, is the 2012 NFL MVP missing Wednesday's session to attend to a personal matter.

Head Coach Leslie Frazier declined to say if Peterson was in Sioux Falls as he deals with the death of his 2-year-old son.

The Star Tribune's Chip Scoggins reports the matter is related to his 2-year-old son's passing, although that has not been confirmed by other sources.
