Cardinals place Adrian Peterson on IR, claim CJ Goodwin off waivers

Arizona Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson will be put on injured reserve

The Cardinals are placing Peterson on injured reserve, the 32-year-old former NFL MVP and seven-time Pro Bowler confirmed in a statement Friday to ESPN's Josina Anderson. "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".

Peterson, who missed the past two games, was injured in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 26.

During a press conference earlier in the week, Arizona head coach Bruce Arians reported no improvement in Peterson's condition.

Peterson finishes with 129 carries for 448 yards (3.5 average) and two touchdowns this season with Arizona.

However, Arizona could certainly do worse than an interior bruiser of Peterson's ilk as a backup to David Johnson while the 2016 scrimmage yards leader prepares for a return from a wrist injury that derailed his 2017 campaign.

Before the Titans game, Peterson shared a video on Instagram that showed the exact play where he suffered his injury. He also had a 159-yard game against San Francisco, when the Cardinals gave him 37 carries.

After a trade to the Cardinals, Peterson had a few bright moments.

The main reason the Cardinals traded for Peterson was due to lead Arizona running back David Johnson suffering a season-ending wrist injury on September 10 versus the Detroit Lions.

A wide receiver at California University of Pennsylvania, Goodwin signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2014. He snapped in the first five games of the season for Arizona before getting injured in Week 6 at Philadelphia.
