Arians said Peters "could [need] a little bit of time," suggesting that it's unlikely the nose tackle will play Sunday against the Texans. Third-year player Rodney Gunter would be the next man up if Peters is ruled out.
Peters has 10 tackles (nine solo) and one pass break up through five games this season, and he'll avoid missing his first game of the season. He'll be tasked with stopping Bucs' running back Doug Martin and pressuring quarterback Jameis Winston.
Peters sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Eagles and was able to return to the game, but was still limited in practice this week. Rodney Gunter is the next man up at nose tackle for the Cardinals if Peters is unable to suit up.
Peters exited in the first half with the knee injury and was tabbed questionable to return. The 29-year-old was able to continue through the rest of the game with no apparent issues.
Peters suffered a knee injury in Sunday's game against the Eagles and is questionable to return, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
Peters had been a solid performer through the first four weeks of the season, so it would be a big loss for the Cardinals' defensive front if he's sidelined for the rest of the contest. Rodney Gunter and Xavier Williams are likely to see increased snaps at nose tackle if Peters fails to return.
