In fact, Peterson wants to play 2-3 more seasons before calling it quits.
“I’ll be playing next year for sure,” Peterson said. “Maybe two or three more years.”
Peterson had an impressive season in Washington, who signed him following the season ending injury suffered by rookie running back Derrius Guice, and registered 1,042 yards, at 4.2 yards per carry, and scored 7 touchdowns, adding one receiving touchdown to that total.
Seahawks Place Ed Dickson on IR
Dickson was initially expectedto miss four-to-five weeks with a knee injury, which he underwent surgery for back in August, but has not recovered as expected, raising some concerns within the organization.
Dickson signed a three-year, $10.7 million contract last year, but injuries have limited his tenure with the Seahawks.
Lions’ Matthew Stafford Wants To Return This Season
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has stated his desire to return this season despite reports indicating that he could miss more than six weeks as he recovers from fractured bones in his back, according to DetroitLions.com’s Tim Twentyman.
“Because this is what I do,” Stafford said about wanting to come back this season. “I understand your question, but this is what I love to do. I love playing football. I appreciate all the hard work that all the guys in this locker room and in this organization put into going out there and trying to win games on Sunday and I love being a part of that.”
“It’s tough for me to sit there without the pads on and not be able to impact the game on the field the way I’m used to doing,” Stafford said. “That’s driving me to get back out there, and whenever we all deem it’s the right time for me to get back out there, I’ll be out there.”
If things go well, the Lions could see Stafford back toward the end of the regular season. Detroit would need to have a major turn around to make the playoffs this season, which seems highly unlikely.
Steelers’ James Conner Out, Juju Smith-Schuster Doubtful
Compounding issues further, Steelers’ wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster may miss the game as well as “it’s not looking good” for the Steelers’ explosive superstar wide receiver’s status for Sunday’s game.
The Steelers will also be without center Maurkice Pouncey as well, as he is serving a suspension.
