Peterson suffered the injury on November 26 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In a statement, the running back says he's focused on getting better and looking forward to next season. In his first game with the Cardinals he had 134 yards and two touchdowns. "I'm grateful for the opportunity that the Arizona Cardinals have given me to show that I can still contribute to a an National Football League team".

Anderson Cooper claims he was hacked after tweet calling Trump "pathetic loser"
Until Wednesday, no messages had been posted to his account since Sunday. "Pathetic loser." That tweet has since been deleted. Meanwhile, some Twitter users were not convinced of CNN's explanation regarding the alleged hack.


Peterson's season is over a day after coach Bruce Arians said he wasn't sure whether Peterson would return from the injury he suffered on November 26 against the. At age 32, it's no guarantee Peterson will be offered a contract next offseason. He spent his first 10 seasons in Minnesota, becoming the franchise's all-time leader in rushing yards (11,747) and touchdowns (97).

At 6-7 on the season, the Cardinals still have a very slim chance of making the playoffs in the NFC, needing to win all of their final three games and hope other results go their way. Two games later, he rushed for 159 yards. He entered the league with Pittsburgh as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2014 out of California University of Pennsylvania as a wide receiver and spent his rookie season on the Steelers practice squad. Friday morning, long snapper Aaron Brewer was activated after spending the last eight weeks nursing a wrist injury he suffered against Philadelphia in October.
