Nike said on Wednesday it had suspended its contract with National Football League athlete Adrian Peterson over allegations of child abuse.
Peterson, 29, stands accused of reckless or negligent injury to a child, stemming from a whipping incident that allegedly left bruises and wounds on his son.
"Nike in no way condones child abuse or domestic violence of any kind and we have shared our concerns with the NFL,'' the company said in an emailed statement on Wednesday.
Separately, Mylan said in a statement that it had "ended all activities with Adrian Peterson. We remain committed to supporting those managing potentially life-threatening allergies and will continue our educational efforts to increase anaphylaxis awareness."
The Minnesota Vikings NFL team, of which Peterson is a part of, suspended the star running back on the NFL exempt list, suspending him from all team activities until his child-abuse case is resolved, the franchise said on Wednesday.
"This is a good decision that will allow Adrian Peterson to resolve his personal situation and the Vikings to return the focus to the football field,'' the NFL said of the decision to place Peterson on paid leave.
The Vikings will continue to pay Peterson his full $11.75 million salary for this season.
