Arizona Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson is reportedly headed to the Injured Reserve, a move that would effectively end his 2017 season. ESPN's Adam Schefter shared the news on Peterson Thursday night.

At 6-7 on the season, the Cardinals still have a very slim chance of making the playoffs in the NFC, needing to win all of their final three games and hope other results go their way.

Injuries are nothing new for any player - including Peterson.

Hilton finished with just 41 yards on his five catches, none of which went for more than 13 yards against a game Denver secondary. The Broncos converted a pair of third downs on a 20-yard Osweiler-to-Cody Latimer pass and a 7-yard Anderson run.

Scroggins said holiday music and younger bell ringers usually lead to more contributions. "It's like a family", said Kathy Dillon. The Salvation Army is making a plea for donations, specifically for turkeys. "We are solid for food", Wise said.

A slippery start this morning with falling temperatures today
It means that the Christmas and New Year period could see heavy snow across parts of country with a notable drop in temperature. Scattered snow showers are possible today and this afternoon but little to no accumulation is expected.

Peterson has missed the last two games due to the neck injury he suffered against the Jaguars on November 26. Before the Cards played the Titans on Sunday, Arizona coach Bruce Arians was asked if he thought Peterson might return this season. He ultimately rushed for 529 yards and two touchdowns, but he had not played since November 26, when he rushed for 79 yards against the Jaguars. Peterson wasn't a fit in New Orleans and was traded to Arizona after just four games. He spent his first 10 seasons in Minnesota, becoming the franchise's all-time leader in rushing yards (11,747) and touchdowns (97). He topped the century mark again November 5 when he torched the San Francisco 49ers for a season-high 159 yards on the ground.

The question now is what the future holds for the 2012 NFL MVP.

The main reason the Cardinals traded for Peterson was due to lead Arizona running back David Johnson suffering a season-ending wrist injury on September 10 versus the Detroit Lions. He is technically under contract with the Cardinals for next season.
