SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks could elevate Adrian Peterson from the practice squad to play against San Francisco on Sunday.
Peterson was signed this week by the Seahawks due to concerns about depth at running back.
Alex Collins, Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer are all dealing with injuries that left DeeJay Dallas as the only healthy running back on the roster.
Coach Pete Carroll says Peterson would be ready if called upon.
The Seahawks signed 36-year-old Peterson to their practice squad on Dec. 1.
Peterson appeared in three games earlier this season for Tennessee.
He started two games and had 27 carries for 82 yards and a 3.0-yard average per rushing attempt and one touchdown run. Peterson was released by the Titans on Nov. 23.
