Peterson (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per usual, Peterson had his reps scaled back at practice but was never in danger of missing the game. It's a safe bet the Redskins will try to lean on their rushing attack in Sunday's matchup with a Jacksonville team that was humiliated by Derrick Henry last week. Of course, the injury-riddled Washington O-line may have some trouble opening holes without giving the Jaguars defense any reason to respect the pass.

Peterson (shoulder) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Peterson has opened Week 15 with back-to-back limited practices, he hasn't been forced to miss any games since dislocating his shoulder in early October and that seems unlikely to change Sunday in Jacksonville. More so than his shaky health, Peterson's fantasy utility has plummeted over the last two games due to the season-ending injury to No. 1 quarterback Alex Smith (lower leg). The lack of competent play under center has contributed to the Redskins facing early deficits in both contests, forcing them to abandon Peterson in the run game.

Peterson (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson typically has had his practice reps capped to some degree in the first practice of each week since dislocating his shoulder on Oct. 8, only to ditch the designation before gameday. Expect him to do the same this week as the Redskins prepare for a Week 15 matchup with a Jaguars defense that ranks 21st against the run (120.4 yards per game).

Peterson rushed 10 times for 16 yards and added a three-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson was bottled up with quarterback Mark Sanchez instilling zero fear into the Giants, and game script called for abandoning the run after Washington fell behind 34-0 at halftime. Those looking for a silver lining can take solace in the fact that Sanchez was replaced by Josh Johnson, who looked effective in the fourth quarter against a defense that admittedly may not have been fully engaged. If Johnson brings a spark to the offense in Week 15, Peterson should find some running room against a Jaguars defense that just allowed Tennessee's Derrick Henry to rumble for over 200 yards and four touchdowns.

Peterson (shoulder) doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Giants, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite making regular appearances on Redskins injury reports this season, Peterson has emerged without a designation for nine of 12 gamedays. While the potential exists for the 33-year-old to aggravate his shoulder during a contest, he should carry the load against a Giants defense that has yielded 4.4 YPC and 16 total touchdowns to running backs in 12 outings.

Peterson (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson followed a normal day off Wednesday with a predictable cap on his reps at Thursday's session. More often than not, he's been cleared of any designation on the final injury report of each week, but this past weekend was a notable exception, when he was questionable for a Week 13 matchup with the Eagles. During said contest, he ripped off the longest TD run of his career (90 yards), so he's generally a decent play in his age-33 season. Assuming he plays Sunday versus the Giants, Peterson will attempt to exploit the NFL's 24th-ranked run defense (124.9 yards per game).

Peterson (shoulder) was present at Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After his typical veteran day off to manage a lingering shoulder injury, Peterson is back in the fold one day later. His level of participation is of some interest, but the fact he's practicing is enough to know the 33-year-old is trending toward an appearance, per usual.

Peterson (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is more or less a veteran day off for Peterson, with an expectation that he'll make an appearance in practice before week's end. In Monday's loss to the Eagles, 90 of his 98 yards came on one touchdown scamper, but his upcoming matchup with the Giants should provide a safer opponent to exploit. Over its last five contests, the Giants defense has given up 129.6 rushing yards per game and four TDs on the ground to opposing running backs.

Peterson (shoulder) is listed as active Monday at Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson went through his typical routine this week, following a DNP/LP/LP practice regimen with a questionable designation for the incoming contest. There's always the risk of an in-game aggravation of his shoulder injury, which has forced him to the sideline at times this season. He also will have to contend with pass-catching back Chris Thompson (ribs) for the first time since Week 8 and third occasion since Week 3. Fortunately for Peterson, he's taking on an Eagles defense that has surrendered 151.7 rushing yards per game and four TDs on the ground to running backs over the last three contests.

Peterson has been returned to the injury report due to a shoulder injury, Tarik El Bashir of The Athletic DC reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson had no injury tag coming out of practice Friday, but he showed up on the injury report after Saturday's practice session. The Redskins and Eagles are playing Monday night, so fantasy owners wanting to use Peterson this week will be rolling the dice.
