10/18/17 - RB Adrian Peterson is tied with Hall of Famer Barry Sanders for ninth place all-time in career rushing touchdowns with 99.
With two rushing touchdowns on Sunday against the Rams, he would surpass Sean Alexander and Marshall Faulk, who finished their careers with 100, for seventh place all-time.
10/16/17 - RB Adrian Peterson ran 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns in his Cardinals' debut. In four games with the Saints, he gained 85 total yards on 27 carries. Peterson, acquired in a trade earlier in the week for a conditional sixth-round pick in 2018, ran for more than that by halftime, rushing for 85 yards on just 11 carries.
Peterson's two rushing touchdowns tie him with Hall of Famer Barry Sanders (99) for ninth on the NFL's all-time list. Peterson did more in his first two quarters Sunday with the Cardinals than he could in his first four games combined with the Saints, but it almost didn't matter as Arizona had to hold off a furious rally before vanquishing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-33.
10/10/17 - RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals from the New Orleans Saints for a conditional draft pick, the team announced on Tuesday. "I'm so ecstatic," Peterson texted NFL Network's Stacey Dales after hearing of the trade. Peterson fell behind both Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara in the Saints' backfield. Ingram is leading the team in both carries (42) and rushing yards (170) while Kamara is averaging 5.5 yards per carry to go along with 20 catches for 147 receiving yards. A 2012 NFL Most Valuable Player and seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Peterson has turned 27 carries into just 81 rushing yards in four games this season with the Saints. Peterson spent his first 10 years in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings before his option was not picked up by the club on Feb. 28.
10/04/17 - RB Adrian Peterson had his fewest carries and rushing yards last week when he rushed four times for four yards. The former NFL rushing champion had six carries for 18 yards in Week 1, eight carries for 26 yards in Week 2 and nine carries for 33 yards in Week 3.
09/28/17 - RB Adrian Peterson missed practice on Thursday, one day after reportedly tweaking his knee. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday's practice injury for the 32-year-old Peterson, who is adjusting to playing in a reduced role for the Saints (1-2) this season. Peterson rushed nine times for 33 yards in New Orleans' 34-13 romp over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The 2012 NFL Most Valuable Player has rushed for 77 yards total and just 3.3 yards per carry this season.
09/28/17 - RB Adrian Peterson (rest) was added to the practice report Thursday after not participating.
09/12/17 - RB Adrian Peterson was not effective in his return to Minnesota. Peterson got the first two carries of the game and picked up a first down, but he was silent afterward. Peterson, who is Minnesota's all-time rushing leader with 11,747 yards, finished with six carries for 18 yards in a timeshare with Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara. "It felt pretty good," Peterson said of his first two carries. "I didn't really know what to expect coming in. We talked about running the ball a little more, but for whatever reason got away from it. That's how the game played out. Their defense came out and played well. It is what it is."
08/29/17 - RB Adrian Peterson's appearance in the preseason game against Houston was his first preseason action since 2013 and he carried the football in a preseason game for the first time since 2011.
So, he said, his six carries were "good work." Peterson finished with 15 yards rushing.
06/08/17 - RB Adrian Peterson said he'd like to play another five or six years, although he had a little help in coming up with those numbers. "Thirty-seven, 38 would be good," the 32-year-old Peterson said on Wednesday, admitting that No. 37 was on his mind when former Saints player Steve Gleason's jersey number flashed on the scoreboard during a charity softball game. "It's a good number. It's approaching 40. And then I seen 37 up there, so ..."
05/26/17 - RB Adrian Peterson worked on catching passes out of the backfield while getting the bulk of the snaps with the Saints' first-team offense in seven-on-seven work and team drills Thursday.
Peterson wasn't called on to catch the ball much in the Minnesota offense, but that will likely change with the Saints. Peterson caught 241 passes in 123 career games with the Vikings, but Ingram has 98 receptions and four touchdowns in the past two seasons alone.
Peterson had one pass fall to the ground Thursday, but he appeared comfortable for the most part in a new offensive system and in his new surroundings.
