Adrian Peterson to Start While Derrius Guice is Sidelined With Knee Injury

The Redskins veterans were pissed when Adrian Peterson was declared inactive by Jay Gruden right before their Week 1 matchup with the Eagles. But after Derrius Guice suffered another knee injury, this time to his meniscus on the non-surgically repaired knee, Peterson will not only be back in the lineup, but he’ll be their starter against the Cowboys. 

After Sunday’s game, Gruden explained AP being inactive by saying, “So if we have a game where we think we can run the ball 55 times in a game in an I-formation, then sure, I’ll get him up.” He’ll man the early down carries and give the third down and passing down snaps to Chris Thompson.

However, with Trent Williams still holding out and a game script that could see the Cowboys get ahead early, this isn’t the ideal matchup for Peterson. He’ll definitely enter the game pissed off and could see 15-plus touches, but it’s not a perfect scenario for the future Hall of Famer.

Peterson is currently our RB37 (-4 vs ECR) for Week 2 and is available in 46 percent of Yahoo leagues.
