Peterson released a statement Wednesday in which he committed to the Cardinals, putting an end to trade speculation.

EDGE Analysis

"I've been incredibly frustrated with how the season has gone. But my energy is 100% focused on being part of the solution and helping us [the Cardinals] turn this around. I've never shied away from a challenge before and I'm not starting now. I have always given my all to the Cardinals organization, my teammates and fans. That is what I intend to do for the years to come. I am an Arizona Cardinal, and my focus is on this weeks game."

Coach Steve Wilks said Monday that the Cardinals are "not trading" Peterson, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports

EDGE Analysis

As Peterson goes through his eighth pro season, he has to be frustrated with the state of the franchise. Due to a league-low in time of possession, he's surpassed his tackle total from a season ago (35 versus 34) through seven games, while racking up two interceptions, one sack and one fumble recovery. There's no telling if the Cardinals are listening to offers, but any trade must be agreed to by next Tuesday, Oct. 30.

Peterson has requested a trade, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson surely knew his team was headed for a rebuilding campaign but probably didn't expect things to get this bad. It now looks like a multi-season project, which is a tough pill to swallow for a 28-year-old cornerback with a contract that runs through 2020. Schefter reports that the Cardinals still don't intend to trade Peterson.

Peterson made six solo tackles, one pass breakup and one interception in Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson ranked third on the team in tackles and forced the team's only turnover. The 28-year-old corner has two of the team's six interceptions now, and he'll look to add to the total in Week 8 against C.J. Beathard, who has thrown five interceptions in three starts this season.

Coach Steve Wilks said trade rumors about Peterson were "ludicrous", Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson was seen hugging GM Steve Keim prior to the game leading to trade speculation, but apparently, that is just a pregame ritual, according to the player. In what seems like another losing season in Arizona, it might be wise for the team to explore trade options for their star cornerback. Nevertheless, it seems the 28-year-old will stay put for the time being.

Peterson recorded eight tackles (six solo), an interception and a pass defensed across 72 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson finished the game tied for the most tackles on the team and his first interception of the season. The interception came with the Rams driving, when Jared Goff rolled to his right and tried to sneak a throw past Peterson. However, he did not track Brandin Cooks for the entire game, as Cooks ended the contest with seven receptions for 159 yards.

Peterson (ankle) was a full participant at the Cardinals' practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson did not participate at Wednesday's practice, but it appears the team was understandably illustrating some cautious with their start cornerback. The 27-year-old is expected to be available for Week 17 in Seattle and extend his consecutive starts streak to 112 games.

Peterson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

During Sunday's win versus the Giants, Peterson only played 79 percent of the snaps on defense. Most of the missed time was devoted to a concussion test, Peterson relayed to Weinfuss after the game, but he hasn't entered the protocol for head injuries in the interim. Fast forward to the first practice of Week 17 prep, and Peterson is now dealing with an ankle concern, which head coach Bruce Arians termed "not very" severe, per Weinfuss. Adding to the positive tone is Arians' hope that Peterson makes an appearance in Thursday's session, a belief that bodes well for the cornerback extending his consecutive starts streak to 112 games Sunday at Seattle.

Peterson said he was evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Giants but avoided the league's concussion protocol, ESPN NFL Nation's Josh Weinfuss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peterson can generally be taken at his word on this, but his availability for Week 17 perhaps shouldn't be taken for granted at the moment -- that he was evaluated for a concussion might make his symptoms worth monitoring in the upcoming days. For now, though, the belief is that he suffered no injury.

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

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals will be happy to have their top corner back Sunday, but fantasy owners should see Peterson as a risky option. Titans QB Marcus Mariota is averaging just 27 pass attempts over the last three games, which could keep the ball away from Peterson.
