Peterson (rest) did not suit up for the Cardinals' third preseason game Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear why he didn't play, but Peterson will spend the afternoon in street clothes while Brandon Williams, Mike Jenkins and Justin Bethel assume the majority of the work with the starting unit. Peterson is fully expected to be ready for the regular season opener, though.

Peterson (ankle) took part in individual drills during the Cardinals' mandatory minicamp last week, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson hasn't missed a game in his five-year career, but nagging ankle concerns seemingly forced the All-Pro cornerback under the knife as a preventive measure in mid-April. Handed a 6-to-8 week recovery timetable, his lack of participation in OTAs wasn't a surprise by any means. His return to drills during minicamp signals that his rehab is on schedule, though, with the aim of full health by the time training camp rolls around in late July.

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

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.

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.

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) was limited at Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After sitting out drills Wednesday, Peterson eased the minds of those worried about his availability, stating Thursday that he "just needed some rest. Nothing that's going to hold me back." With confirmation from the cornerback himself, he appears set to lock down any Eagles receiver across from him Sunday at Philadelphia.

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

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.
