"Our coaching staff and our players are now aware that we will have to play the first six games without Patrick and they understand they have to rise to the challenge that it presents".

Peterson recorded 54 combined tackles, a sack, five passes defensed, and two interceptions through 16 games last season.

Even if there's the possibility of Peterson no longer being around by then if the Cardinals happen to deal him before the deadline, it is a shame the Rams won't benefit from the suspension like the Seattle Seahawks will when it comes to facing their rivals.

Patrick Peterson has been the subject of some trade rumors over the last few months, but it doesn't seem likely he'll be going anywhere now.

The league's performance-enhancing drug policy states that any player suspended for a violation "will be ineligible for selection to the Pro Bowl, or to receive any other honors or awards from the League or the Players Association".

He will be eligible to return October 20 at the New York Giants. The offseason addition of Terrell Suggs alongside Pro Bowler Chandler Jones up front, Haason Reddick on the second level, safety Budda Baker, and free-agent pickups Robert Alford and Tramaine Brock alongside Peterson at corner made a solid base for the Cardinals.

"I think you guys understand my character, and also understand my commitment on and off the field, and also to my teammates and the Arizona Cardinals organization", Peterson said.

"First of all, I do not know the details of Patrick Peterson's suspension", said ESPN's Dan Graziano while joining Bickley & Marotta Thursday.
