The Sioux Falls police department released news this afternoon that Adrian Peterson's 2-year-oold son has died from injuries sustained in alleged assault by the boyfriend of the child's mother.

Police are withholding the child's name at the request of the family. Police spokesman Sam Clemens said the state attorney's office is reviewing the case to consider additional charges against 27-year-old Joseph Patterson.

Patterson was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery of an infant. His bond was set at $750,000.
