    Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Active Sunday

    Peterson (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest at San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Peterson fit in just one limited practice this week, though head coach Bruce Arians relayed after Friday's practice that the cornerback was expected to play Sunday. Indeed, Peterson is suiting up, but with an unknown snap count, he may yield snaps at cornerback to Justin Bethel.

    Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Questionable to face 49ers

    Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in San Francisco, CSN Bay Area reports. According to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that he expects Peterson to play in Sunday's game. The star cornerback missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he then returned as a limited participant Friday morning. There is some chance Peterson will be active but play fewer snaps than usual.

    Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: No practice Wednesday

    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.

    Cardinals' Patrick Peterson: Day-to-day with ankle injury

    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 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.

    Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson notches two tackles in loss Sunday

    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 CB Patrick Peterson gets INT in Week 2 win

    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.

    Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson proclaims self 'diabetes-free'

    Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he worked hard in the offseason to lose weight and slow the Type 2 diabetes that affected his play last season, per the team website. Peterson was diagnosed during the early part of last season, but still managed to make the Pro Bowl after making 50 tackles and grabbing three interceptions. "It's a big step, especially after you first find out about something like that, you worry it's life-threatening. But it's definitely something that's controllable," Peterson said. "The team doctors and (head athletic trainer) Tom Reed have done a great job monitoring, and I've been great so far. I'm ready to move forward."

    Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson could return punts this season

    Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said it's possible he could return punts this season. Peterson didn't return punts a year ago as Tedd Ginn did. With Ginn gone, it's an open competition and one that even the team's star cornerback could wind up getting. In his career, Peterson has totaled 1,323 punt return yards and four touchdowns. "Honestly, I do think there's a decent chance," Peterson told the Cardinals' website. "Now that we have nothing but young guys, I'll be the vet who understands these types of situations – how to handle those sky punts, how to handle those backed-up punts. I think there's a very, very high percentage chance that I'll get at least a couple this year."

    Cardinals DB Patrick Peterson says his diabetes is under control

    Cardinals defensive back Patrick Peterson admits dealing with diabetes affected his play during the 2014 season, reports The Arizona Republic. "Yeah, it did," he said. "I'd rather not go into deep detail about that. It was a situation that occurred during the season. The team [doctors] found it and got it all under wraps." Despite the diabetic diagnosis, Peterson said he doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward. "No question it made a big difference and once they found out what the problem was, they put their hands around the throat, wrangled it and we moved forward from it," he said.
