Peterson supplied 51 tackles (45 solo), six passes defended, and three interceptions in 16 contests during the 2016 campaign.

EDGE Analysis

After an offseason in which he underwent ankle surgery, Peterson proved his health in the preseason, getting a few possessions under his belt in both of the first two games. Over the course of the campaign, his practice reps were occasionally impacted, most notably by a left knee injury from a Week 12 battle with Julio Jones. At this point in his career, Peterson is rarely picked on, as evidenced by 21 combined passes defended over the last three years. The lack of looks inhibit his annual interception total and thereby his IDP potential. No matter, he's a mainstay within the Cardinals' secondary, with no DNPs to date through six seasons.

Peterson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

On Sunday, Peterson left Atlanta with an ailing left knee to go with his efforts on Julio Jones, whom he held to four catches for 35 yards. During a radio spot with SiriusXM NFL on Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians acknowledged that Peterson may sit out Wednesday's practice, yet he expressed confidence that the cornerback will suit up this Sunday against the Redskins. A practice appearance or two would lend credibility to Arians' statement, but the veteran that is Peterson doesn't require those reps to be ready on a weekly basis. Only time will tell if Arians' prediction for Peterson comes to pass.

Peterson (knee) may be limited in Wednesday's practice or miss it altogether, but head coach Bruce Arians is confident that he will play in Sunday's game against the Redskins, Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson is currently dealing with soreness in his knee and was clearly limping in some portions of Week 12's game against Atlanta. That being said, he reportedly suffered no structural damage in his knee, suggesting that any limitations he faces in practice this week are merely precautionary.

Peterson's knee is sore following Sunday's game against the Falcons, but he does not have any structural damage, according to coach Bruce Arians, Darren Urban of Azcardinals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson was noticeably gimpy during portions of Sunday's contest, but he valiantly still limited opposing wideout Julio Jones to just four catches and 35 yards. With some soreness to contend with to start this week, it's entirely possible that Peterson's practice involvement is managed over the course of this week, but the fact that he doesn't have any structural damage bodes well for him being able to suit up Sunday against the Redskins.

Peterson emerged from Sunday's game in Atlanta with an injured left knee, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson battled Julio Jones throughout, containing the Falcons wideout to four receptions for 35 yards. Thereafter in the locker room, Peterson was in visible pain and expressed uncertainty about the precise nature of the ailment, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Peterson did note that his knee hit Jones' cleats at one point, so the cornerback is likely dealing with a mere contusion. Even if the Cardinals don't release the exact injury, Peterson's practice reps could be scaled back this week in order to ease the discomfort.

Peterson (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson missed practice on Wednesday so his return to the field on Thursday is a reassuring sign, even if it was in a limited fashion. His status for Friday's practice will go a long way in determining his availability this Sunday against the Panthers. Should he be ruled out, expect either Justin Bethel, who is nursing a foot injury, Brandon Williams, or Tharold Simon to grab the spot start.

Peterson (ribs) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson played through some pain in Week 7 so it doesn't come as a surprise he was held out of the team's first practice since. However, he doesn't appear in danger of missing Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.
