NEW YORK, NEW YORK - It looks like Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson still has to pay for the allegations of child abuse that have haunted him all season.

The moment prosecutors accepted Peterson's no contest plea to misdemeanor reckless assault his legal battle ended.

But another one started.

The league has suspended Peterson without pay for at least the rest of the 2014 season -- for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Peterson's been on the commissioner's list since September -- which means he wasn't on the field, but was still getting paid.

Not for the rest of the season, though.

The earliest he can be considered for reinstatement is April of next year.

Either way, Peterson plans to appeal the league's decision.

Has Peterson been punished enough? You be the judge.
