Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Likely on way out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Availability will be determined weekly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Uncertain to play rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that he has "no idea" if Peterson (neck) would be able to play in any of the Cardinals' final three regular-season contests, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

While it has been determined that Peterson won't require surgery to address the neck injury that has kept him out the last two games, it's apparent that the veteran needs more time off to heal up. Peterson opened Week 15 preparations as a non-participant in practice Wednesday, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site, and at this point, it looks unlikely that he'll be able to rally in time to suit up Sunday against the Redskins. Another Peterson absence would clear the way for Kerwynn Williams -- who has compiled 185 total yards on 37 touches over the previous two games -- to serve as the Cardinals' lead back.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that there's no time line for Peterson's (neck) return, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The Cardinals, namely Arians, have been coy about the nature of Peterson's injury, which he sustained Week 12 in the latter stages of a win against the Jaguars. Until Peterson makes his presence felt at practice, the backfield will be the domain of Kerwynn Williams, who racked up 16 carries for 97 yards this past Sunday against the Rams. Behind Williams, D.J. Foster can expect some reps, primarily in passing situations, while the bigger-bodied Elijhaa Penny gets work in short-yardage situations.
