  • Peterson said Tuesday in an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he wants to play football in 2021 and hopes to sign with a Super Bowl contender. Apart from a brief stretch in New Orleans in 2017, the 36-year-old running back has mostly played for subpar teams since leaving Minnesota after the 2016 campaign. Peterson dropped to 3.9 yards per carry in Detroit last year, but he scored seven touchdowns on his 19 carries inside the 10-yard line. He's 449 yards behind Barry Sanders (15,269) for fourth place on the all-time rushing list.

  • Peterson rushed seven times for 63 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 37-35 loss to Minnesota. With D'Andre Swift again in the lead role, Peterson unsurprisingly finished the season as second fiddle in the backfield, but he made up for a lack of carries with his most efficient game of the season. Considering the 35-year-old failed to eclipse 4.0 yards per carry in 12 of 16 games this year -- albeit while frequently serving as a short-yardage option -- this showing could help the 35-year-old as Peterson ventures into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Peterson logged four carries for 10 yards while playing a season-low six offensive snaps during Saturday's 47-7 loss to the Buccaneers. In a game where the Lions trailed by 34 points at halftime, Peterson finished third in playing time behind each of D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson, who is trusted in pass protection and has seen at least one target in all but three games this year. While it's possible the playing time could work more in Peterson's favor Week 17 against the Vikings, it seems clear that interim coach Darrell Bevell wants to be giving rookie D'Andre Swift all the experience he can get.

  • Peterson collected 23 yards on six carries during Sunday's 46-25 loss to the Titans. D'Andre Swift garnered more than two-thirds of the Lions' RB rush attempts Sunday, as the future Hall of Famer was held to six or fewer carries for a second consecutive game. For those who were hoping to rely upon Peterson as a starting option during the fantasy postseason, his workload has diminished at the most inopportune time. Swift's absences between Weeks 11 and 13 allowed Peterson to collect 12.7 rush attempts per game. With the rookie back in the fold now, however, Peterson's opportunities have diminished.

  • Peterson (forearm) practiced in full Thursday. Peterson matched his least busy game of the season this past Sunday versus the Packers, turning his five touches into 30 yards from scrimmage. In the wake of the contest, he was a limited practice participant Wednesday, but his elevation to all reps one day later has cleared him for Week 15 at Tennessee, where Peterson will contend for RB reps with D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson.
