Peterson supplied 51 tackles (45 solo), six passes defended, and three interceptions in 16 contests during the 2016 campaign. After an offseason in which he underwent ankle surgery, Peterson proved his health in the preseason, getting a few possessions under his belt in both of the first two games. Over the course of the campaign, his practice reps were occasionally impacted, most notably by a left knee injury from a Week 12 battle with Julio Jones. At this point in his career, Peterson is rarely picked on, as evidenced by 21 combined passes defended over the last three years. The lack of looks inhibit his annual interception total and thereby his IDP potential. No matter, he's a mainstay within the Cardinals' secondary, with no DNPs to date through six seasons.
Peterson (knee) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Redskins after fully practicing Friday. Peterson sat out Wednesday's practice due to knee soreness but increased his workload as the week unfolded, culminating with a full session Friday to remove any questions regarding his availability to face Washington's high-powered passing attack.
Peterson (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Peterson is making progress this week after he spent the entirety of Wednesday's practice session on the sidelines. Look for more updates to come after Friday's practice as the Cardinals are dealing with a slew of injuries in their secondary including Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder), and Justin Bethel (foot).
Peterson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. On Sunday, Peterson left Atlanta with an ailing left knee to go with his efforts on Julio Jones, whom he held to four catches for 35 yards. During a radio spot with SiriusXM NFL on Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians acknowledged that Peterson may sit out Wednesday's practice, yet he expressed confidence that the cornerback will suit up this Sunday against the Redskins. A practice appearance or two would lend credibility to Arians' statement, but the veteran that is Peterson doesn't require those reps to be ready on a weekly basis. Only time will tell if Arians' prediction for Peterson comes to pass.
Peterson (knee) may be limited in Wednesday's practice or miss it altogether, but head coach Bruce Arians is confident that he will play in Sunday's game against the Redskins, Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports. Peterson is currently dealing with soreness in his knee and was clearly limping in some portions of Week 12's game against Atlanta. That being said, he reportedly suffered no structural damage in his knee, suggesting that any limitations he faces in practice this week are merely precautionary.
