Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson placed on IR

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson placed on IR

The coach - and the Cardinals - have a pretty good idea now. "It's something that he and doctors are working through", Arians said last week, via

Before the Titans game, Peterson shared a video on Instagram that showed the exact play where he suffered his injury. I could've easily broken my neck or seriously injured my neck. In his first game with his second new team of 2017, Peterson rushed for 134 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Kerwynn Williams has been the starter in Peterson's absence and he was already slated to do that again Sunday in Washington. He parted ways with the Minnesota Vikings in the offseason after 10 years with the club, and signed with the New Orleans Saints in late April.

Either way, it will be interesting to see if this is the end of Peterson as a member of the Cardinals, or his football career completely, or if he does indeed return in some form next year.

Peterson rushed for 79 yards on 20 carries against a stout Jacksonville Jaguars defense. His next game wasn't much better, with only 26 yards on 14 carries, but his final performance of the season was solid.
