The Cardinals have released RB Adrian Peterson. It was a no-brainer move, saving about $3 million against the 2018 cap. Peterson averaged just 3.5 yards per carry in 6 games with Arizona -- after averaging 3.0 in 4 appearances for the Saints. The soon-to-be 33-year-old has seemingly reached the end of his football road.

The Cardinals have placed RB Adrian Peterson on IR. We still don't have any details on his neck injury, but he never returned to practice after going down in Week 12. It ends another disappointing season that saw Peterson muster just 3.4 yards per carry across 10 games with New Orleans and Arizona. He's signed for 2018 for a little more than $1 million, but there's no guarantee the Cardinals bring him back. Peterson turns 33 in March.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Bruce Arians admitted that he has "no idea" if Peterson will play again this season, let alone this week. Look for RB Kerwynn Williams to get another start against the Redskins.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He remained sidelined all week and has no timetable for return. RB Kerwynn Williams gets another start after rushing for 97 yards on the Rams last week, but the matchup against Tennessee is much tougher. The Titans are allowing just 3.4 yards per carry to RBs.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a poor bet to play this weekend. That'd leave Kerwynn Williams as the lead back -- but just a RB3 or flex option vs. a tough Titans run defense.

Injury Predictor

Peterson tore the meniscus in his right knee in September of 2016. He returned to play just 1 more game (Week 15) before his season ended with knee and groin injuries. This year, the 32-year old will play backup to Mark Ingram in New Orleans. That should minimize his injury risk.
