Washington HC Jay Gruden seemed happy with his 1st look at recently signed RB Adrian Peterson in game action Friday night. “I saw a big guy running pretty hard really,” Gruden told reporters afterward. “He ... had a couple good bounces, and, you know, the thing I like about some of his runs is they look like they’re like gains of ones [yard] and he’d fall forward for a gain of three. The first run of the day I thought it was a three-yard gain and he ends up second and three. I was impressed with Adrian and the way he ran.” Peterson carried 11 times for 56 yards, while Rob Kelley played just 3 snaps with the starters (and totaled 8 carries for 19 yards). That doesn't necessarily indicate a new depth chart. It certainly made sense to give Peterson more run to test out the new guy over an incumbent in his 3rd year with Gruden. Samaje Perine is also expected to return to action in the coming week. We'll see how this situation gets sorted out. In the meantime, we're not drafting any of Washington's 3 big backs until well into the double-digit rounds.
RB Adrian Peterson is re-signing with the Redskins on a 2-year deal. The future Hall-of-Famer exceeded expectations (as usual) last year, pumping out his 8th 1,000-yard campaign on a decent 4.2 yards per carry. Ideally for Washington, Peterson will be a lightly used backup behind Derrius Guice in 2019.
Update: Peterson's deal is for $8 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're curious to see more details on the contract, but this initial reports makes it look like the 'Skins envision a significant role for AP. Perhaps there's concern about Guice's rehab from last year's torn ACL, which has required multiple surgeries.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. He played through these injuries last Sunday and got in 2 limited practices this week. Peterson is fully expected to play vs. Dallas and can be penciled into fantasy lineups.
As expected, Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Panthers and Chris Thompson (ribs) is inactive. Kapri Bibbs will step in as Washington’s #2 RB, but Peterson should handle as many touches as he can handle.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is expected to play against the Panthers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With RB Chris Thompson and Jamison Crowder likely to be sidelined, Peterson should play a big ball-carrying role and an expanded passing-game role. He's a nice RB2 for Week 6.
Redskins RBs Adrian Peterson (ankle) and Chris Thompson (ribs) are listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. It sounds like both guys will play, but we'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. RB Kapri Bibbs is next in line if 1 or both of these guys can't go.
