Adrian Peterson sat out Cardinals practice Wednesday with neck injury
Arizona Cardinals starting running back Adrian Peterson sat out practice Wednesday with a neck injury, head coach Bruce Arians said. Arians added that the injury was suffered in last week’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As of the middle of the week, Arians didn’t know how the running back depth chart will look for Arizona’s Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium.
“I have no clue,” he said. “We’ve got five of them, and four of them practiced. I’m not sure who will be available yet.”
Backup running back and return man Kerwynn Williams practiced despite fighting through the pain of cracked ribs that he suffered against the Jaguars. Arizona also has second-year pro D.J. Foster and the bigger Elijhaa Penny on the roster.
Foster, who has seen an increased role since the departure of Andre Ellington, recorded a carry for four yards and added three receptions for 18 yards — including a tip-toe catch to set up the game-winning field goal — last week in the 27-24 win over the Jaguars.
Additionally, the Cardinals promoted 24-year-old running back Bronson Hill off the practice squad on Wednesday.
