Cardinals DT Corey Peters to Miss the Rest of 2020 with Knee Injury

The Cardinals will be without defensive tackle Corey Peters for the rest of the season as he is out due to a knee injury.

The 32-year-old went down before halftime of the Cards 32-30 win over the Bills on Sunday at home.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said after the game that the injury looked serious as Peters was carted off the field.

Kingsbury confirmed on Wednesday that Peters would miss the final seven games of the regular season.

The 10-year veteran has been with the Cardinals for five years and started all nine games this season. He had 15 tackles, including three for a loss.

”Defensive line-wise, we’re a little bit banged up there,” Kingsbury said. ”But we’ll have enough guys to play and that’s all you can ask for. (Peters is) a tough loss like I mentioned the other day because of his leadership and what he brings to the locker room.”

Kingsbury didn’t elaborate on Peters’ injury. The NFL Network said Peters suffered a torn patellar tendon.
