"Obviously, I'm disappointed about going on IR when my body is still able to produce, but I look forward to returning completely healthy for another season in 2018". He churned out 134 yards and two touchdowns in his desert debut, and he racked up 314 rushing yards over his first three games.

Peterson has a two-year contract, but the Cardinals could decide to cut him next offseason. He reportedly won't need surgery, per the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "I'm grateful for the opportunity that the Arizona Cardinals have given me to show that I can still contribute to an National Football League team".
