Peterson carried the ball 13 times for 78 yards in Sunday's 47-16 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

He also caught one of four targets for zero yards. Peterson showed he was still a capable lead back late in the season after Derrius Guice (knee) got hurt once again, amassing 355 rushing yards and four TDs over the last five games. The future Hall of Famer has one year left on his current contract with Washington that carries a reasonable $3 million cap hit, but whether Peterson returns to the club or has to look for a job elsewhere in the offseason will depend on who gets hired as the new head coach, as well as the health of both Guice and 2019 fourth-round pick Bryce Love (knee).

Peterson (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson was held out of practice Thursday before returning as a full participant Friday. He's seen 31 carries and five targets in two games since Derrius Guice (knee) was placed back on injured reserve, dominating playing time on early downs while Chris Thompson has handled the majority of the passing-down work.

Peterson's absence from practice Thursday was attributed to a toe injury on the Redskins' official report.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Peterson's appearance on the injury report, all indications are that he was receiving a maintenance day Thursday and isn't any real danger of sitting out the Week 17 matchup in Dallas. The 34-year-old is in line to lead Washington's rushing attack in the season finale and has a good chance to reach the 1,000-yard scrimmage threshold for the 10th time in his 13-year career. He'll enter Sunday just 38 scrimmage yards shy of the benchmark.

Peterson received a rest day Thursday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

For most of the final three months of the season, Peterson has been listed on Redskins' practice reports with an injury of some type, primarily a toe issue. On the first Week 17 version Wednesday, he wasn't included at all, meaning his typical Thursday DNP can be chalked up as a true vet day off. Look for Peterson to continue leading his team's backfield Sunday in Dallas while Chris Thompson and Wendell Smallwood provide support.

Peterson carried 15 times for 36 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Giants. He also caught two passes for 19 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson struggled against a respectable Giants run defense, averaging just 2.4 yards per carry on the day. He salvaged his performance with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter and chipped in with a pair of catches as well. Peterson has now scored a rushing touchdown in four consecutive games and will look to finish off his age-34 season on a high note next Sunday against the Cowboys.

Peterson (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson returned to full practice participation Friday after his customary rest day Thursday. He's the unquestioned lead runner in Washington now that Derrius Guice (knee) is on injured reserve, landing in an excellent position to see double-digit carries for a fifth consecutive week. Peterson posted a 16-66-1 rushing line and a 3-25-0 receiving line on 60 percent snap share during last week's 37-27 loss to Philadelphia. He's now set to face a Giants defense that ranks 15th in fantasy points allowed to running backs and fifth in yards allowed per carry (3.9).

Peterson (toe) didn't practice Thursday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson is getting his customary day off from practice, but there's little worry about his availability for Sunday's game against the Giants. Assuming he ditches his designation Friday, per usual, he'll be the Redskins' lead back this weekend versus the NFL's 22nd-ranked run defense (115.1 yards per game).

Peterson rushed 16 times for 66 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for another 25 yards in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson worked as the lead back in this one, with Josh Ferguson siphoning off only three carries for nine yards. The future Hall of Famer tied Walter Payton for fourth all-time with his 110th career rushing touchdown, reversing field after his initial lane was blocked off to find the end zone from 10 yards out. With Derrius Guice (knee) on IR, Peterson should continue to carry the mail in a favorable Week 16 home matchup against the NFC East rival Giants.

Peterson (toe) was a full participant in Friday's practice and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The toe injury prevented Peterson from practicing a day earlier, but his ability to take every rep during the final session of the week implies that his absence Thursday may have maintenance-related more than anything else. With his health intact, Peterson should be in position to lead the Washington ground attack for the final three games of the season after Derrius Guice (knee) landed on injured reserve earlier this week.

Peterson (toe) missed Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Per usual, Peterson is getting his weekly respite as he tends to a lingering toe issue. Expect him to ditch the designation Friday, at which point he'll be primed to take on a full workload out of the Redskins' backfield. With Derrius Guice (knee) landing on IR this week, Peterson only has to contend with Wendell Smallwood, Chris Thompson and Josh Ferguson for reps down the stretch.
