Peterson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Oakland, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The playmaking threat has yet to make his presence felt this season, but Peterson could take advantage of rookie signal caller Derek Carr, who has tossed at least one pick in four consecutive contests.

Peterson (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

As always, Peterson presents a playmaking threat on the Arizona defense, but he likely won't be targeted enough to be a reliable IDP option.

Peterson (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson isn't living up to the extension signed during the offseason, which will make him the NFL's highest-paid cornerback upon completion of his rookie deal at the end of the 2015 season. Nevertheless, expect him to progress through the concern, as he did a week ago, and be available Sunday against the Raiders and rookie quarterback Derek Carr.

Peterson (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest versus Washington, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Because opposing schemes largely avoid throwing his direction, Peterson's tackle total decreased in each of his first three seasons. As such, his relevance in fantasy depends on his ability to pick off passes, but he's managed just one pass defended in four outings this year.

Peterson (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Washington.

Peterson practiced fully Thursday and Friday, so he's definitely ready to go. His IDP utility usually hinges on whether he intercepts a pass, as he doesn't pile up many tackles.

Peterson (ankle) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

IDP owners shouldn't worry about Peterson's availability Sunday against Washington. However, hand-wringing is another issue, as opposing quarterbacks are rarely looking his way, holding him to 11 tackles (10 solo) and one pass defended through four outings.

Peterson (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Peterson's injured left ankle isn't affecting his activity level entirely, which upholds coach Bruce Arians' thoughts regarding the cornerback's ability to recover OK. Through four games, Peterson hasn't exactly achieved the standard expected by his contract. As the NFL's highest-paid corner, he only has 11 tackles (10 solo) to his name, while turning in a pair of supbar outings against the Giants and Broncos.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday's loss to the Broncos that he expects Peterson (ankle) to be okay, Darren Urban of the team's official website reports.

Peterson's rough start to the season took another turn for the worse, as he was forced out of Sunday's blowout loss in the second half. Prior to the injury, he struggled against Denver wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who combined for 327 receiving yards on 15 catches. Should Peterson miss time beyond Week 5, it would leave more playing time for Justin Bethel and Jerraud Powers, the latter of whom has been working as the nickel corner. The Cardinals might also need more snaps out of safety Tyrann Mathieu, who has thus far worked in a part-time role.

Peterson suffered a left ankle injury during Sunday's game and is considered questionable to return.

Peterson recorded four tackles (three solo) prior to being forced from Sunday's contest in Denver. At the moment, the extent of the All Pro cornerback's injury is uncertain. Expect Peterson's status to be updated in the near future.

Peterson supplied four solo tackles in Sunday's win against the Giants in New York.

Peterson has little to show for his efforts this season, with five solo tackles and no other counting stats on the ledger. Along with the sparse stat lines, the league's highest-paid cornerback played one of the worst games of his career in Week 2. Eli Manning didn't shy away from Peterson, who was beat on a seven-yard touchdown grab by Reuben Randle. Moreover, Peterson committed one defensive hold and one pass interference apiece. While his prime contribution to IDP formats is interceptions, he's nearing a full year since his previous pick in Week 5 last season against the Panthers.
