  • Cardinals to place Adrian Peterson on season-ending IR

The Cardinals' Adrian Peterson has reportedly been placed on injured reserve, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Thursday.

Before the Titans game, Peterson shared a video on Instagram that showed the exact play where he suffered his injury. "I'm grateful for the opportunity that the Arizona Cardinals have given me to show that I can still contribute on an National Football League team".

Peterson's neck injury won't require surgery, but it only adds to his plethora of missed games throughout his career.

Mason Fine passed for 303 yards and three touchdowns for North Texas (9-5), but was intercepted twice and fumbled twice. Fast forward to 2017, and the Broncos again find themselves as underdogs in a West Coast bowl against a Power 5 team.

Coach Bruce Arians said this week he wasn't sure whether Peterson would return from the injury and there had been no improvement in his condition. Eventually he couldn't play due to the neck injury.

Since being acquired from the New Orleans Saints on October 10, the 32-year-old has 129 carries for 448 yards and two touchdowns in six games for Arizona. He had just 27 carries for 81 yards with New Orleans.

Peterson is three yards away from passing Marshall Faulk for 11th on the all-time rushing yards list.

Adrian's best game of the season came on November 5, rushing for 159 yards on 37 carries in a Cardinals' 20-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Peterson is technically under contract for another season with the Cardinals.

Peterson came out of the gates strong for Arizona, rushing for 134 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his Cardinals debut and then carrying the ball a career-high 37 times for 159 yards against the San Francisco 49ers two weeks later.
