Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Suspended 6 Games For 2019 Season

Patrick Peterson

He'll miss games against four receivers graded by PFF above 80.0 on their scale: Detroit's Kenny Golladay, Seattle's Tyler Lockett, Cincinnati's A.J. Green and Atlanta's Julio Jones. He will also be allowed to participate in all Cardinals preseason games and practices.

Peterson is a three-time All-Pro and he holds the franchise record with eight Pro Bowl appearances, a streak that will come to an end with his suspension. He will be eligible to return October 14, before Arizona's game against the New York Giants.

Peterson, who didn't elaborate on why he failed the test, said he had known about the suspension for months and was relieved it was out in the open so he could begin to move forward. "Our coaching staff and our players are now aware that we will have to play the first six games without Patrick and they understand they have to rise to the challenge that it presents".

"For the most part, our relationship is great", Peterson said. Green called Peterson the best cornerback in the league.

According to the press release , this new monster hunting title will launch on May 21st on the PC via the Epic Games Store . They are waiting for you: regular updates, seasonal events, new Behemoths and much more in a rich and ever-changing world.

The 28-year-old appeared in all 16 games in 2018 and racked up 54 tackles, 1 sack, two interceptions, a fumble recovery, and 5 pass defenses. His suspension might be the reason that hasn't happened yet.

Peterson, who is one of just 13 players to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight National Football League seasons, has started all 128 games since being drafted by the Cardinals in 2011.

If there's any silver lining to this, it's that there's a good chance Arizona has planned for Peterson's absence. Peterson will not appeal the suspension, which reportedly dropped the punishment from eight to six games. That may benefit their second-highest 2019 draft pick.
