Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson says diabetes gave him problems last year in the season

patrick peterson diabetesBruce Arians the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals had mentioned in the past that Patrick Peterson had a mild case of diabetes, and now Peterson himself is talking about the issue. Peterson says it did affect him a little. 

“I’d rather not go into deep detail about that,” Peterson initially told Kent Somers of  “It was a situation that it occurred during the season.  The team docs found it and got it all under wraps.”

Peterson admitted that the situation affected him in 2014.

“No question it made a big difference and once they found out what the problem was, they put their hands around the throat, wrangled it and we moved forward from it,” Peterson said.

Hopefully Peterson is able to get it under control, because when healthy he is a top 5 corner, and the Cardinals will need him moving forward.
