Seahawks elevate Adrian Peterson from practice squad to active roster for Week 13 matchup with 49ers

The Seattle Seahawks didn’t waste any time getting Adrian Peterson up to speed with their offense, elevating the former MVP running back to their active roster in time for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, the team announced Saturday. Peterson signed with the Seahawks’ practice squad Wednesday, just a week after he was released from the Tennessee Titans.

Seattle has three running backs questionable for the game, as Alex Collins (abdomen), Rashaad Penny (hamstring), and Travis Homer (calf) all received the designation on Friday’s final injury report. Homer and Penny were full participants while Collins was limited, making the move to promote Peterson necessary if Seattle wanted any healthy running running backs outside of DeeJay Dallas. 

Collins hasn’t provided much for Seattle since starting running back Chris Carson went on injured reserve with a neck injury. Collins has 101 carries for 395 yards and two touchdowns this season (averaging 3.9 yards per carry) as his volume of carries has decreased each week. Dallas has just 17 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown (3.8 yards per carry).
