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.”
Panthers Sign Bruce Irvin
Vikings Re-Sign Dan Bailey
Texans Sign Darren Fells
Fells, 32, was cut by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month after the team failed to find a trade.
Fells, who inked a three-year, $12 million deal with the Browns last year, managed only 11 receptions in his only season in Cleveland.
