The Tennessee Titans have brought in Adrian Peterson as a possible replacement following Derrick Henry’s injury – that experience is now over, at least for now. The Titans released Peterson on Tuesday night after three missions.
The Titans signed Peterson to their practice squad on Nov. 2, and Tennessee added Henry to the reserve injured list the same day due to a foot injury. Three days later, Peterson was promoted to the active squad.
Peterson first played for the Titans in Week 9 in their win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 36-year-old ended his three-week stint with 27 points for 82 yards and a touchdown. The 1-yard touchdown against the Rams pushed the old star to 11th place on the all-time list, tied with Walter Payton.
Tennessee also brought Dontrell Hilliard into the active squad, which was last used for the Titans. D’Onta Foreman should now be the starter for the time being, in the rotation with Jeremy McNichols. There is a chance that Henry could return to the playoffs.
