Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said in an interview that cornerback Patrick Peterson battled blood sugar issues during the 2014 season, and that Peterson had “borderline” diabetes. Peterson has now said that his condition goes beyond any borderline.

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.
