Washington Redskins veteran running back Adrian Peterson is keeping a positive mindset as he tries to find holes behind a banged up Redskins offensive line that has struggled to give the future Hall of Famer consistent running lanes in recent weeks.
Washington will be without Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao, and Brandon Scherff as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.
“You’ve just got to stay positive and keep pressing,” Peterson said, according to John Keim of ESPN. “It’s not the end of the world, and it’s not the end of the season for us. We all have to perform better. That’s the mindset that I have. … There’s something different when you lose three starters to where your mindset shifts to, ‘I just gotta do more than what I was doing before.’”
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden chimed in on the injuries that the teams has endured along the offensive line, saying that Peterson will carry on with business as usual.
“He just goes through his reads like he normally would,” Gruden said. “It doesn’t matter who’s blocking for him — at guard, center, tackle, tight end, fullback — if we had one — or receiver. He’s just going to go through his progressions and make his cuts and do what he does. It doesn’t matter.”
Broncos Sign Andy Janovich to Three-Year Extension
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Janovich’s new deal will net him a signing bonus of $1.35 million and includes $3.22 million fully guaranteed, making him the league’s third highest paid fullback.
Janovich is certainly a fan favorite in Denver, and was scheduled to hit free agency this offseason prior to inking the new deal.
Falcons Sign Kasey Redfern
Redfern will take the pace of Matt Wile, who struggled during the game against the Houston Texans, with a number of kickoffs landing out of bounds.
The Falcons are currently 1-4 on the season.
Packers’ Davante Adams Day-to-Day
Green Bay Packers’ veteran wide receiver Devante Adams is dealing with a turf toe injury that is currently keeping him listed day-to-day, but it is unclear just how much time Adams could miss.
“We’re just really trying to pace it at this point,” Adams said, according to the Journal Sentinel’s Jim Owczarski. “I can’t really tell you when I’m going to play. It doesn’t feel how I want it to feel at the moment, but we definitely have time, so we’ll just kind of play this thing (out), and I know Mr. (Matt) LaFleur will definitely be able to take care of any other questions regarding that.”
It has raised concerns that Adams is calling it a “major injury”, but when it comes to providing any more details, Adams is being mum.
“There’s things I can do, but we’ll keep a lot of that in house right now,” Adams said. “I can move around on it, but me moving around on it and feeling like it’s feeling better that day or not in pain just sitting there is a lot different than having to break tackles and cut and release and things like that.”
