Peterson recorded eight tackles (six solo), an interception and a pass defensed across 72 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Peterson finished the game tied for the most tackles on the team and with his first interception of the season. The interception came with the Rams driving, when Jared Goff rolled to his right and tried to sneak a throw past Peterson. However, he did not track Brandin Cooks for the entire game, as Cooks ended the contest with seven receptions for 159 yards.
Peterson recorded one solo tackle and one sack in Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Redskins. The Cardinals struggled defensively to contain Alex Smith, as the quarterback passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns. However, Peterson was able to reach Smith once during the contest, his first sack since the 2014 season.
Peterson said he was evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Giants but avoided the league's concussion protocol, ESPN NFL Nation's Josh Weinfuss reports. Peterson can generally be taken at his word on this, but his availability for Week 17 perhaps shouldn't be taken for granted at the moment -- that he was evaluated for a concussion might make his symptoms worth monitoring in the upcoming days. For now, though, the belief is that he suffered no injury.
Peterson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The Cardinals will be happy to have their top corner back Sunday, but fantasy owners should see Peterson as a risky option. Titans QB Marcus Mariota is averaging just 27 pass attempts over the last three games, which could keep the ball away from Peterson.
Peterson (hamstring) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Peterson practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, so his absence Thursday is a step in the wrong direction. However, the Cardinals could just be exercising caution with their shutdown corner. The 27-year-old has yet to miss a game this season, but Brandon Williams would presumably be next in line should he have to ultimately sit out.
