NFL Notebook: Adrian Peterson signs with Redskins

Running back Adrian Peterson, with the Cardinals last season will visit with the Redskins on Monday

Peterson joins a running back group that has been depleted by injuries through the team's first two preseason games.

The Redskins lost potential starter Derrius Guice for the season when the second-round pick tore his ACL in the team's preseason opener and backups Samaje Perine and Byron Mashall are both now sidelined with ankle injuries. Backups Samaje Perine (sprained ankle) and Byron Marshall (lower leg) left the game with injuries, and rookie Martez Carter was waived with an injury designation on Saturday. In 10 games (seven starts) with the two teams, Peterson rushed for 529 yards on 156 carries and two rushing touchdowns. "I'm down for working out or whatever I have to do to make the team", Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Peterson spent 10 seasons in Minnesota before splitting time in New Orleans and Arizona during 2017. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area.

Two more major winners in the form of Charl Schwartzel and Francesco Molinari remain in contention at tied 10th. I'm in uncharted territory. "It's a lot harder than people think".

The change of scenery was just what Peterson needed, as he rushed for over 130 yards in two of his first three games with the Cardinals.

Jamaal Charles also met with Washington.

The Redskins, depleted at running back, are willing to find out. His brand of old school workhorse back is losing its place in the National Football League, and the Redskins already have two younger and similarly skilled players in Perine and Rob Kelley. He also earned the Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2012 after rushing for 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns.

An Indian Navy team made a temporary rope bridge across a stream in Thrissur district on Sunday to rescue 100 people stranded for days.

If Williams' scouting report proves to be credible, Kelley could end up losing his stranglehold on the lead-back role as the season plays out. Peterson, who knows about returning quickly from a knee injury after tearing his ACL 2011, helped Williams do the same over the summer after the All-Pro left tackle underwent knee surgery this past winter. "I've seen guys come through that door and guys go through this process".

The Redskins, though, were unhappy with their 28th-ranked rushing attack last season.

"I don't understand the stigma when people get 31, 32, 33 - they somehow just slow down", Williams said Sunday, via the Washington Times.
