Adrian Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Friday that he's planning on returning for the 2018 season after the Arizona Cardinals placed him on injured reserve Thursday with a neck injury. 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.

Coach Bruce Arians said this week he wasn't sure whether Peterson would return from the injury and there had been no improvement in his condition. He spent his first 10 seasons in Minnesota, becoming the franchise's all-time leader in rushing yards (11,747) and touchdowns (97).

The veteran running back, acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints in October, has missed Arizona's last two games with a neck injury.

Peterson played four games with the to open the season and appeared in six more with Arizona.

A wide receiver at California University of Pennsylvania, Goodwin signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2014. He snapped in all 64 regular-season games and eight postseason contests with the Broncos.
