Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Productive in lead-back role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder) rushed 17 times for 97 yards and failed to come up with his only target in the Redskins' 23-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

With Chris Thompson (ribs/ankle) out of action, Peterson was slated for a solid workload Sunday. He paced the Redskins backfield in carries as expected, though his 17 rushing touches fell right within the range of the volume he'd logged since a 26-carry opener. Peterson once again looked very effective, averaging well over 5.0 yards per carry for the second time in the last three games. The 33-year-old has been surprisingly viable as a lead-back option thus far and will look to put forth another solid effort against the Cowboys in a Week 7 divisional showdown.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Panthers.

With Chris Thompson (ribs/ankle) out of commission, Peterson shouldn't have any problem handling the majority of touches out of the Redskins backfield. Peterson will be working through a hyperextended knee and strained shoulder, though, which likely will hinder his potential to produce, especially versus Carolina's eighth-ranked run defense (95.0 yards allowed per game).

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Likely to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite being listed as questionable, Peterson (shoulder/ankle/knee) should be able to start and handle his usual workload Sunday against the Panthers, according to Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington.

Peterson was a limited practice participant throughout the week after hyperextending his knee and straining his shoulder during Monday's 43-19 loss to the Saints. The timing isn't great for a short week in Washington, with Chris Thompson (ribs/knee), Jamison Crowder (ankle), Paul Richardson (knee/shoulder) and Josh Doctson (heel) also questionable. Coach Jay Gruden said all the players listed as questionable are considered game-time decisions, but Peterson and Doctson seem to be in slightly better shape than the rest. Regardless, we'll need to keep an eye out for the inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Could be game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder/ankle/knee) is listed as questionable and expected to be a game-time decision Sunday against the Panthers, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Unlike some of his injured teammates, Peterson may not be a true game-time decision, as he seems to be on the right track after logging limited practices throughout the week. Regardless, we'll need to keep a close eye on Washington's inactive list, which should be released around 11:30 AM ET on Sunday. Chris Thompson (ribs/knee), Jamison Crowder (ankle), Paul Richardson (knee/shoulder) and Josh Doctson (heel) are also listed as questionable. Peterson may end up playing through pain after he strained his shoulder during Monday's blowout loss to the Saints. His ankle and knee injuries seem to be less serious, but they won't help the matter.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Faces limitations Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder/ankle/knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Peterson's practice reps were capped for the second straight day, but the running back indicated earlier this week that the trio of injuries wouldn't keep him off the field Sunday against the Panthers. Redskins coach Jay Gruden hasn't said anything that suggests otherwise, so fantasy owners can probably count on Peterson to pace the Washington backfield in touches in Week 6. Peterson was held to four carries in the Week 5 loss to the Saints and played only two second-half snaps, but that was largely a function of the Redskins eschewing the run game after heading into halftime with a 13-point deficit.
