The Redskins have signed RB Adrian Peterson. AP is a future Hall-of-Famer, but his name is much bigger than his game at this point. He averaged just 3.4 yards per carry on 156 attempts between the Saints and Cardinals last year. His 2.3 yards after contact per attempt ranked 49th among 78 qualifying RBs, per Pro Football Focus. He finished 46th among 47 RBs in Football Outsiders' DVOA. The good news for Peterson is that his competition for early-down work in Washington is Rob Kelley and his career 3.9 yards per carry and Samaje Perine, who's sidelined with a sprained ankle. We'd still consider Kelley the favorite for the job right now, but Peterson will be worth monitoring closely over the next few weeks.
Washington RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He put in a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out the first 2 workouts. Peterson is a weak fantasy option against a tough Minnesota defense. But he's available if you need him.
ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) will play against the Vikings tonight, "barring any pregame setback." He'll be playing through what he said is a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a grade 2 low-ankle sprain. Peterson was already a shaky fantasy starter against the Vikings' 5th-ranked RB defense. The ankle injury just adds more risk.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. He said earlier this week that he's dealing with a minor high-ankle sprain and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. Peterson was already in a bad spot as a big road underdog against a tough Vikings defense. The ankle only adds more downside. Wendell Smallwood figures to operate as Washington's lead back vs. Minnesota if Peterson sits. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is out.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he has a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a grade 2 low-ankle sprain. (Ankle sprains are graded on a 1 to 3 scale, with 1 being the least severe.) Peterson added that he's "good" -- but it's unclear if he'll be available for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. With RB Chris Thompson (toe) unlikely to play, Peterson's absence would leave Wendell Smallwood as Washington's lead back.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is a healthy scratch for today’s game against the Eagles. Derrius Guice is locked in as Washington’s early-down back but figures to lose pass-catching work to RB Chris Thompson
