Cardinals Place Veteran DT Corey Peters On Season-Ending I.R. With Torn Achilles

     

Update:

The Arizona Cardinals announced Friday that they’ve placed veteran DT Corey Peters season-ending injured reserve following a recent Achilles’ tear, per Darren Urban.

——–

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians announced Thursday that veteran DT Corey Peters will miss the entire 2015 season after he tore his Achilles.

Arizona has had really poor luck with injuries in recent years to say the least. They’re already dealing with injuries to G Mike Iupati and OT Bobbie Massie, so this is hardly the type of news they were hoping for before they’ve even played their second preseason game.

The Cardinals had Peters listed as the starting nose tackle on their depth chart, but his loss opens the door for Alameda Ta’amu to fill that role moving forward.

Peters, 27, signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Cardinals as an unrestricted free agent back in March. The deal included $5.75 million guaranteed along with a base salary of $1 million for the upcoming season.

Last year, Peters appeared in 15 games for the Falcons last year and recorded 26 tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No.34 defensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
