Peterson laid motionless for a couple minutes on his stomach before being turned over.  Her eventually was able to sit up before being walked back to the locker room.  He was started on the concussion protocol an is still in that testing here in the third quarter.

Peterson appears to be out for at least this game but no official word has been given as of yet.  The loss of Peterson is huge but he appeared to be struggling again today with Eagles receivers.  He did make a great open-field tackle in the first quarter on the Eagles first drive.

In his place is third-year cornerback Justin Bethel.  The Cards will need him to step up against this fast-paced Eagles offense.
