Peterson's recovery from right ankle surgery is expected to encompass 6-to-8 weeks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With knowledge of his recovery timetable coming to the fore, Peterson is a candidate to miss the entire offseason program, despite optimism that OTAs could be in his future in the aftermath of this week's procedure. Even if he fails to take the field before training camp, he's hopeful that he'll avoid any of the recurring issues from the past two campaigns, though his ironman status as a professional remains intact.

Peterson underwent ankle surgery this week, yet he may still take part in portions of the Cardinals' offseason program, the Arizona Republic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peterson has tended to ankle injuries the past two seasons, but the respective ailments haven't forced an absence. In fact, he's been an ironman of sorts, playing in all 83 games, including playoffs, over the course of his five-year career. Peterson put together perhaps his best overall season in 2015, during which he posted 35 solo tackles, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.

Peterson accrued 35 tackles (all solo), two interceptions, and one forced fumble during the 2015 season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Bouncing back from a campaign in which a diagnosis of diabetes spurred struggles both on and off the field, Peterson was rarely picked on with either Jerraud Powers or Justin Bethel lined up on the other side. As a result, Peterson notched just eight passes defensed and posted a career low in tackles in yet another complete 16-game slate. In addition to taking on 95 percent of the defensive snaps, he also served as the Cardinals' primary punt returner, taking 32 at a clip of 8.1 yards per return.

Peterson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peterson initially suffered an ankle injury in Week 10 but was able to play in the Cardinals' next three games. While the current concern is considered an aggravation, head coach Bruce Arians said, "We're just making sure that he's OK." Consequently, his practice reps will likely be monitored closely in advance of Sunday's outing in Philadelphia.

Peterson amassed a team-best five tackles and a pass defended in Sunday's victory at St. Louis.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Although Peterson has been difficult to roster in IDP formats since a seven-interception campaign in 2012, he's bounced back from a lackadaisical 2014, in which he struggled with injury and an eventual diagnosis of diabetes. With his health concern corralled this season, he's done the same to opposing wideouts, allowing just 302 receiving yards to those lined up across from him en route to the third-best passer rating against (57.8) among cornerbacks in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. His presence will more often than not benefit the cornerback opposite Peterson, whether it's Jerraud Powers (calf) or Justin Bethel. Nevertheless, Peterson will seek out his third interception of the season Thursday against the Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater, who has been picked off in back-to-back games.
