  • Adrian Peterson: Hoping to find a team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Peterson (neck) has been cleared by multiple doctors and intends to continue his NFL career, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Peterson was cleared by at least one doctor before the Cardinals released him March 13, and he's been posting workout videos on his Twitter account since early May. He shouldn't have too much trouble finding an opportunity to compete for a committee role, though he may need to accept a contract for the veteran's minimum or not much more. Peterson celebrated his 33th birthday in March, following a 2017 season in which he took 156 carries for 529 yards (3.4 average) and two touchdowns, with most of that production occurring after he was traded from New Orleans to Arizona on Oct. 10.

  • Adrian Peterson: Says he's healthy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Peterson (neck), who will be released by the Cardinals on Monday, said he received a clean bill of health and intends to continue his career, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. Peterson missed all of December due to a neck injury, finishing with 129 carries for 448 yards (3.5 average), two touchdowns and three fumbles (two lost) in six games for the Cardinals. He'll turn 33 next week and may have to settle for a committee role, having played more than 10 games in a season just once since 2013. Peterson likely will look for a new home, as David Johnson (hand) figures to gobble up the vast majority of backfield snaps in Arizona.

  • Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Likely on way out
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson (neck) in the offseason, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. After a spectacular 10-year stint with the Vikings to begin his career, Peterson was allowed to explore the open market and eventually landed a deal with the Saints in late April. Once the regular season commenced, Peterson seemingly was a victim of too many mouths to feed, earning 27 carries combined in the first four games of the season. On the heels of a Week 5 bye, the Saints sent him to the RB-needy Cardinals, who lost 2016 All-Pro David Johnson (wrist) in Week 1. Finally back in a leading role, Peterson averaged 23 touches per outing over the next six games before sustaining a season-ending injury of his own. In an offseason in which Peterson turns 33 years old, Arizona's decision likely will come down to cap concerns. Peterson's salary is accompanied by a $3.5 million hit in 2018, and the presence of a healthy Johnson may render the veteran redundant.

  • Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Lands on injured reserve
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals will place Peterson (neck) on injured reserve Thursday, ending his season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Peterson hasn't taken any reps in practice since injuring his neck against the Jaguars in Week 12 and Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians recently stated he had "no idea" when the running back would play again, so the team's decision to shut Peterson down isn't totally unexpected. With Peterson out of the mix, Kerwynn Williams will continue to shoulder most of the workload in the backfield, with D.J. Foster and Elijhaa Penny also picking up some touches.

  • Peterson will undergo weekly scans on his neck, which will guide the Cardinals' decision-making process with the veteran running back, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. Backing up head coach Bruce Arians' assertions that Peterson doesn't have a timetable for a return, the running back has been advised to rest for the time being. That explains why Peterson hasn't handle any reps in practice since injuring his neck against the Jaguars in Week 12. The aforementioned scans will monitor any progress made in the coming weeks, and if the Cardinals are able to stay the playoff picture, the team will make a decision on Peterson's availability based on where he stands on the health front. In the meantime, Kerwyn Williams will continue to receive a large workload in the backfield, but D.J. Foster and Elijhaa Penny may also snipe a few touches here and there.
