As their playoff hopes continue to dwindle, the Arizona Cardinals' injury problems continue to mount.

Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he's "hurting right now" after suffering a knee injury during his team's 38-19 loss at the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, according to Cardinals reporter Darren Urban. It's unclear whether the injury will keep Peterson off the field next weekend vs. the Redskins.

A five-time Pro Bowler, Peterson had a tough day vs. the Falcons, as he was flagged for two pass interference penalties while being assigned with covering star Atlanta receiver Julio Jones.

Peterson left the game briefly in the second half but returned despite being in obvious pain.
