Peterson said the Giants doctor's diagnosed a non-displaced fracture of his lower back after a recent MRI exam. He experienced pain while playing against the Chargers, and said further tests this week have showed the injury to be more serious, though he did not offer specifics.
"I was told it was something I could play with that would just cause me pain, but it wouldn't cause any other damage to the back," he said. "But after the game, on Monday I was told it was more serious in nature. Right now it doesn't look good for this weekend and it doesn't look good for this season."
