Peters (foot) returned to practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.
The 28-year-old defensive tackle received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis on Aug. 4, and has not practiced since. It is unsurprising that the Cardinals took their time with bringing Peters back in order to avoid a lingering issue.
Peters came down with plantar fasciitis early in camp and hasn't practiced in over a week. The injury may have to subside entirely before the Cardinals feel comfortable letting him back on the field. Nonetheless, the 2015 free-agent pickup has yet to play a regular season snap for the Cardinals due to an Achilles tear suffered last August.
Peters received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, which forced him from practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
When Peters left the field Tuesday, the Cardinals were concerned that another lengthy absence was imminent, but the defensive lineman is merely dealing with plantar fasciitis, rather than last August's Achilles tear. Because plantar fasciitis can linger, Peters will likely take his time before making a return to the field.
Peters sustained a season-ending left Achilles tear last year in training camp, and the 2016 version doesn't appear to be treating him well either. On a positive note, he was able to walk off the field under his own power, albeit with a limp. Expect head coach Bruce Arians to clarify the injury, if any, once the requisite tests are performed.
Corey Peters has healed from the torn left Achilles that he suffered in training camp 2015, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
The Arizona Cardinals inked the veteran defensive tackle to a three-year deal last March with the expectation that he would anchor the weekly battle in the trenches, but the injury wiped away Peters' first season in the Arizona desert. He'll attempt to uphold his standard from his first five years with the Falcons, with whom he averaged 2.2 sacks among 29 tackles per season.
