Peterson (quadriceps) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Peterson's quad injury isn't a major concern. Arguably the league's best cover corner, Peterson likely will be tasked with shadowing a slumping Sammy Watkins, which could in turn open up more targets for Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.

Head coach Bruce Arians says Peterson has had no problem with his quadriceps and is expected to play Sunday against the Rams, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

While still waiting on an official confirmation, it sounds like, barring any setbacks, Peterson is back to full health. It's a good sign as the Cardinals head to Los Angeles to face Jared Goff and a Rams' offense that is seemingly finding its groove.

Peterson (quadriceps) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

During a punt return Sunday against the Buccaneers, Peterson aggravated a quad injury that limited him in each practice last week. He wasn't expected to participate in Wednesday's session, but whatever he was able to fit in constituted a "limited" showing. The development lines up with Peterson's desire to play this weekend in London, as he'll "definitely be ready to go for Sunday" against the Rams. Nonetheless, it would surprise at this point if he doesn't conclude game preparation with a questionable designation for the second week in a row.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said that Peterson (quadriceps) won't see any involvement during Wednesday's practice, but the team still expects its top cornerback to play Sunday against the Rams in London, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals are likely just trying to avoid any further aggravation to Peterson's nagging quad tendon injury by holding him out Wednesday, and it's possible that he's no more than a limited participant in their final two practice sessions of the week. If healthy in Week 7, Peterson would likely be tasked with shadowing Rams top wideout Sammy Watkins for most of the contest.

Peterson sustained a quadriceps injury against the Buccaneers on Sunday and is questionable to return, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

EDGE Analysis

No specifics have been offered on the injury he sustained early in the final period. Veteran Tramon Williams replaced Peterson and quickly had an interception, and will likely continue to play a major role if Peterson cannot return.

Peterson (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Limited by a quadriceps issue during Week 6 preparation, Peterson will lock down his typical every-down role at cornerback. Opposing quarterbacks normally avoid the perennial All-Pro, though, as he's searching for his first interception since Week 13 of last year.

Peterson (quadriceps), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The quad injury limited Peterson's involvement in practice throughout the week, but it doesn't look to be anything significant enough to keep him off the field or restrict his snaps in Week 6. Look for Peterson to spend most of the day shadowing Mike Evans as the Cardinals aim to slow down a Buccaneers passing attack that ranks third in the NFL with 288 yards per game through the air.

Peterson is battling a quadriceps injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson was limited in practice this week after playing every defensive snap in last Sunday's loss to the Eagles. There's no indication at this point that the team's starting cornerback is expected to sit, but veteran Tramon Williams would likely step in if he is unable to suit up Sunday.

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.
