Peters (foot) returned to practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old defensive tackle received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis on Aug. 4, and has not practiced since. It is unsurprising that the Cardinals took their time with bringing Peters back in order to avoid a lingering issue.

Peters (foot) has been ruled out for the Cardinals' preseason opener Friday against the Raiders, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peters came down with plantar fasciitis early in camp and hasn't practiced in over a week. The injury may have to subside entirely before the Cardinals feel comfortable letting him back on the field. Nonetheless, the 2015 free-agent pickup has yet to play a regular season snap for the Cardinals due to an Achilles tear suffered last August.

Peters received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, which forced him from practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

When Peters left the field Tuesday, the Cardinals were concerned that another lengthy absence was imminent, but the defensive lineman is merely dealing with plantar fasciitis, rather than last August's Achilles tear. Because plantar fasciitis can linger, Peters will likely take his time before making a return to the field.

Peters (undisclosed) went to the locker room early during Tuesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peters sustained a season-ending left Achilles tear last year in training camp, and the 2016 version doesn't appear to be treating him well either. On a positive note, he was able to walk off the field under his own power, albeit with a limp. Expect head coach Bruce Arians to clarify the injury, if any, once the requisite tests are performed.

Peters has healed from the torn left Achilles that he suffered in training camp 2015, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals inked the veteran defensive tackle to a three-year deal last March with the expectation that he would anchor the weekly battle in the trenches, but the injury wiped away Peters' first season in the Arizona desert. He'll attempt to uphold his standard from his first five years with the Falcons, with whom he averaged 2.2 sacks among 29 tackles per season.

Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Corey Peters suffered a season-ending torn left Achilles' tendon Wednesday, according to ArizonaSports.com. Peters suffered the injury in a non-contact drill. It is the second Achilles' tendon injury the 27-year-old Peters has suffered in his career after rupturing his right Achilles' tendon in 2013 with the Atlanta Falcons. "The second time around it's really devastating," head coach Bruce Arians said Thursday. "Because he was having such a great camp. He was just running toward the ball. Nobody touched him." Peters signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Cardinals in March. Rookie fourth-round pick Rodney Gunter is expected to be given the first crack at the starting job and will compete with fellow rookie Xavier Williams for practice reps. In five seasons with the Falcons, Peters had 11 sacks, an interceptions and a fumble recovery for a touchdown while averaging about 30 tackles a year.

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that Peters will start at nose tackle during the 2015 season, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

The Cardinals inked Peters to a three-year deal in the offseason, but this is the first indication that he'll be a part of the first-team defense. Since joining the offseason program, his leadership ability has been noted often, which has seemingly afforded him first shot at nose tackle over holdover Alameda Ta'amu. In five previous seasons with the Falcons, Peters accumulated 145 tackles (100 solo), 11 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery for a touchdown in 71 games.

Peters will sign a three-year deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

The exact terms of the deal are still undefined, although the initial reports have Peters earning at least $3.5 million per season. At 26-years-old, Peters played in 15 games during the 2014 campaign, compiling 26 tackles and two sacks for Atlanta.

Peters (Achilles) is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Peters' Achilles' tendon rupture occurred just two days before Christmas, but it appears he's enjoyed a rapid recovery and will be able to contribute a significant snap count toward Atlanta's defensive effort Sunday. He's not likely to be an IDP factor, but his presence is a welcome one in Atlanta's front seven.

Peters (Achilles) returned to practice Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Peters is coming off Achilles' surgery, which landed him on Atlanta's PUP list to begin this season. Coming off a career-best five sacks in 15 starts last season, Peters once again figures to factor into the Falcons' defensive line rotation, although his playing time could be impacted by the additions of Tyson Jackson and Paul Soliai this offseason. Nonetheless, Peters will hope to be ready for the regular season and stake his claim for a role similar to last season's.
