Peterson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Clearly hobbled after Sunday's victory against the Bengals, Peterson's ankle injury is of keen interest, as the Cardinals may have to do without perhaps the NFL's top-performing cornerback for a period of time. On the other hand, there is a chance that he'll be able to practice by the end of the week, which would do wonders for his potential to suit up in Week 12 at San Francisco. If the training staff decides to rest Peterson, Justin Bethel will step into the base defense at cornerback opposite Jerraud Powers.
Head coach Bruce Arians considers Peterson day-to-day following the ankle injury suffered in Sunday night's win against the Bengals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Peterson was in tip-top shape for the majority of the contest, containing A.J. Green to two catches for 24 yards, one pass break-up, and a defensive holding penalty on the six passes on which they were matched up, according to Pro Football Focus. However, Peterson injured his ankle in the waning minutes, which contributed to a breakdown of the Cardinals' pass defense. While the team awaits the result of an MRI, his status will remain in question.
Peterson left Sunday's game against the Bengals in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Peterson did a nice job against A.J. Green prior to missing the final two drives. Justin Bethel stepped in at cornerback and would likely start in Week 12 if Peterson isn't available.
Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson notched two solo tackles, one tackle for loss, and one pass defended in Sunday's loss to the Rams. After logging all 53 defensive snaps in Week 4, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix, Peterson has earned 96 percent of those snaps this season. The heavy usage isn't reflected in Peterson's game log -- he has just six solo tackles and one interception -- but his ability as a shut-down corner may have reached new heights in 2015. Through four games, he's held opposing receivers to 85 yards total through the air, Pro Football Focus reports, which explains his lack of attention to date from opposing signal-callers.
Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson recorded three tackles and an interception in Sunday's Week 2 contest against the Bears. After a disappointing 2014 season, Peterson showed up to camp in great shape and assured everyone that he was healthy and ready to go. He looked good on Sunday against Jay Cutler and the Bears when he recorded his first interception of the year. Peterson picked off 7 passes back in 2012 and if he could possibly regain that form, he'd be a solid IDP at the cornerback position.
