SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota -- The 2-year-old son of NFL running back Adrian Peterson has died after an alleged beating/

Sioux Falls police said the boy was assaulted by the boyfriend of the child's mother Wednesday.

The boy was hospitalized in critical condition for the past two days before his death.

The boyfriend, identified as 27-year-old Joseph Patterson, appeared in court Friday on charges of two counts of aggravated battery of an infant and aggravated domestic assault. Those charges could change due to the boy's death.

There is no word on whether the NFL's second-leading rusher will play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

He should die like a rabid animal and the mother sterilized so she can't give another boyfriend a punching bag to play with
