Peterson impressive in Redskins debut

Last season's running back room wasn't too bad, and he still had all of them-until he didn't.

Earlier this week, the Washington Redskins chose to bring aboard former Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson on a one-year deal to help fortify their situation in the backfield that has been decimated by injuries over the last couple of weeks in the preseason and training camp.

After the session, the veteran running back signed autographs and posed for pictures, as well. "He had a five-yard average I believe, had a couple good bounces, and, you know, the thing I like about some of his runs is they look like they're like gains of ones and he'd fall forward for a gain of three".

The Redskins had hoped the season would include Derrius Guice, but he tore his ACL in the first preseason game.

Gruden said he's anxious to see Peterson in a game.

Peterson got the start and made his impact felt from the game's first offensive play.

Playing the entire first half, Denver's starters built a 14-point cushion in a 29-17 victory at FedEx Field. "I will see how it feels in the morning". Kelley tallied 19 yards on eight attempts Friday.

"We'll see. I'm going to check out the tape and see how he's feeling body-wise and we'll go from there", said Gruden of Perine. We'll get some good looks at them and we've got some other guys to look at.

Peterson played in 10 games for the New Orleans Saints and Cardinals previous year before injuring his neck.

After leaving Oklahoma, Peterson and Murray went on to outstanding careers in the National Football League. After 10 mostly successful seasons, following several injury-plagued years, Minnesota decided not to exercise Peterson's contract option for 2017, and he became a free agent.
