NFL Rumors: Redskins To Host Veteran Running Back Adrian Peterson

Coach Jay Gruden had hoped running backs Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall would be the answer, but both also sustained leg injuries in the exhibition game against the Jets on Thursday.

Washington lost projected starting rookie running back Derrius Guice with a torn ACL.

Also set to visit Washington are running backs Jamaal Charles, 31, and Orleans Darkwa, 26.

"We want to bring them in to get physicals on them just in case", Gruden said, when specifically asked of Charles and Peterson.

Desperation mode is already kicking in for the Redskins, who are are dealing with a ton of injuries to their offensive backfield just two weeks into the 2018 preseason. "I've seen guys come through that door and guys go through this process". In 10 games (seven starts) with the two teams, Peterson rushed for 529 yards on 156 carries and two rushing touchdowns. But he complained publicly about his role right away, and was traded to the Arizona Cardinals after averaging three yards per carry over four games.

Peterson spent 10 seasons in Minnesota before splitting time in New Orleans and Arizona during 2017. The 2012 MVP is 12th all-time in rushing with 12,276 yards and needs 37 to pass Jim Brown. 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. This included a pair of performances with more than 130 rushing yards before a neck injury prematurely ended his season.

Adrian Peterson could be heading to the NFC East. "It's been a long time coming, and I promise you I'm going to give you everything that I have inside, and for me I'm just happy to be part of a great organization, a good team offensively and defensively and to run behind a great offensive line".
