Tennessee will be signing the 36-year-old Peterson to its practice squad and then promoting him to the roster, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Peterson has not played this season but did appear in all 16 games for the Detroit Lions in 2020.

Henry broke his foot in yesterday’s overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts. He’s currently leading the NFL in all three major rushing categories with 219 carries for 937 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Peterson, who has rushed for 14,820 yards and 90 touchdowns in his career, carried 156 times for 604 yards and seven scores for the Lions in 2020. He’ll likely split time with Jeremy McNichols in Tennessee’s backfield moving forward.
