Date:

Patrick Peterson (knee) is "sore," but avoided structural damage.

Peterson played through the issue for over two quarters on Sunday, and thankfully seems to have gotten good news from his Monday testing. Peterson will probably see extremely limited practice time this week, but should be out there against the Redskins.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson suffered a "painful" knee injury Week 12 against the Falcons.

"It’s hurting right now," Peterson said. "I don’t know what the diagnosis is right now. Can’t put too much pressure on it. We’ll let the team doctor figure it out, but it is painful." Peterson hurt his left knee in the second quarter, but he gutted through the injury to finish the game. The fact he was able to continue playing should give the Cardinals some hope, but he is at best questionable for Week 13. His status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is no longer on the Week 8 injury report.

Peterson experienced back pain in last week's tie with Seattle and missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury, but he'll be all systems go for Sunday's showdown with Kelvin Benjamin.

Patrick Peterson (ribs) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Peterson played all 63 snaps in Sunday's tie with Seattle. Maybe he's just getting a breather. Through seven games, Peterson holds PFF's 22nd-best coverage grade out of 116 qualifiers at cornerback.

Patrick Peterson (ankle) participated in individual drills on Tuesday.

Peterson is still recovering from April ankle surgery. He will likely be limited the rest of the offseason program, but he said he will be a full-go for training camp. Peterson is coming off arguably the best season of his career.
Jun 7 - 2:02 PM

Patrick Peterson's (ankle surgery) recovery time is 6-8 weeks.

It means there's a good chance he'll be ready for June's mandatory minicamp, and will be ready to rock well before training camp. "It was just something I needed to get cleaned up and it’s going to make me better this year," was Peterson's quote on the matter. Peterson's name has been bigger than his game at times, but he's coming off a career-best 2015.
Apr 21 - 5:34 PM

Patrick Peterson recently underwent ankle surgery.

He's expected to be full-go by training camp. Peterson injured his ankle against the Bengals last November, but still started all 16 games and had the best season of his career in coverage, also intercepting two passes.
Apr 20 - 8:23 PM

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson said he feels "50 times faster" compared to last season.

Peterson didn't look like himself last year and was later diagnosed with diabetes. With the disease under control, Peterson returned to All-Pro status in 2015. He earned PFF's sixth-highest cornerback grade out of 118 qualifiers this year. Look for Peterson to bounce back in the NFC Championship after giving up a Hail Mary touchdown to Jeff Janis in last week's win over Green Bay.
Jan 20 - 4:39 PM

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson (ankle) is active for Week 12.

Arizona might not need him for what shapes up as a blowout, but Peterson is ready to go. No 49ers passing-game option is worth using in this matchup.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 02:31:00 PM

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Peterson only got in one limited practice this week. Despite the questionable tag, coach Bruce Arians expects him to play. The Cardinals don't need Peterson to beat the 49ers, so it's possible he'll be held out in an effort to get fully healthy.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 06:15:00 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians expects Patrick Peterson (ankle) to play Sunday against the 49ers.

Peterson suffered a low-ankle sprain late in last week's win over Cincinnati. He returned to practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Peterson owns PFF's 23rd highest cornerback grade out of 111 qualifiers this year.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 02:53:00 PM

Speaking Monday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians called Patrick Peterson (ankle) day to day.

Arians said Peterson's MRI results weren't back yet, but the expectation is that he's avoided a high-ankle sprain. In the midst of a career year, Peterson should be ready for Sunday's game against the 49ers, but perhaps he'll be held out in an effort to get to 100 percent. The Cards don't need Peterson to beat Blaine Gabbert.

Patrick Peterson exited late in the Cardinals' Week 11 win over the Bengals with an ankle injury.

Peterson shut down A.J. Green for most of the night, but he injured his ankle late in the fourth quarter and did not return. Peterson will have an MRI to assess the severity of the injury, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the expectation is he is dealing with just a low-ankle sprain. Peterson is playing perhaps the best football of his career.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 08:34:00 AM

Cardinals LCB Patrick Peterson, who has diabetes, attributed his poor 2014 play to blood-sugar issues.

Peterson turned in his worst NFL season, grading out 69th among 108 qualifiers in PFF's cornerback ratings. With his blood sugar now under control, Peterson is down 13 pounds and has reportedly stood out during spring practices. After Antonio Cromartie bolted in free agency, Arizona needs Peterson at top form to remain an elite defense. With Jerraud Powers penciled in as the new No. 2, expect Peterson to resume shadowing top receivers this season after he primarily lined up on the left side only in 2014.
