Cardinals placing Adrian Peterson on injured reserve

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.

Peterson, 32, still has one year remaining on his contract. The running back, who hasn't played since Week 12, missed the Cardinals' past two games with a neck injury that didn't seem to be healing.

It is reported that Peterson won't need to undergo surgery for the injury, although it could still spell the end of his time with the Cardinals. "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 also caught 11 passes for 70 yards.

For Peterson, it's the story of his career.

He has 99 career touchdowns and is in 12th place on the National Football League all-time list for career rushing yards.
