Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson left Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a calf injury. It's not yet clear how serious the injury might be. We'll keep an eye on his situation throughout this week. Arizona slot CB Tramaine Brock missed Week 10 with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. That could leave the Cardinals without 2 of their top 3 cover guys for the Week 11 visit to San Francisco.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the league has suspended Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson for 6 games for violating the PED policy. Peterson is reportedly not appealing the ban. He's not much of an IDP factor, so the biggest fantasy impact will be on Arizona's first 6 opponents. The Lions, Ravens, Panthers, Seahawks, Bengals and Falcons can enjoy having their lead WRs running free of 1 of the league's top cover men. As for the Cardinals defense, Peterson's early absence should make it easier for 2nd-round rookie Byron Murphy to start right away. Robert Alford will claim a spot after signing a 3-year deal with $13.5 million in guarantees. Arizona also added David Amerson and Tramaine Brock at the position.
Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson left Sunday night's game with an ankle sprain. HC Bruce Arians told the Arizona Republic on Monday that his top corner is day to day, and Peterson tweeted out, "You guys know I'll be good to go." His status may not really matter for this week's matchup with the Niners, who don't have much of anything going on offense -- or defense, for that matter.
The Cardinals have been experimenting with using CB Patrick Peterson on offense. He's one of the most athletic and explosive players in the game -- regardless of position. HC Bruce Arians has Peterson in about 15 offensive plays, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King. Peterson will reportedly see time at WR and wingback in Arians' offense. He's highly unlikely see more than 1 or 2 touches per game and won't be an option in standard fantasy leagues. But it could provide a boost to his IDP profile. And an extra weapon can't hurt QB Carson Palmer's outlook.
