Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Corey Peters tore his left Achilles in practice Wednesday and will miss the entire season, the team announced Thursday.

Peters ruptured his right Achilles in 2013 and returned for 15 games in 2014 with the Atlanta Falcons. He signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with Arizona this off-season. 

The Falcons selected Peters in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft. In five seasons with Atlanta, Peters recorded 146 tackles and 11 sacks.

Rodney Gunter, a defensive end drafted out of Delaware State University, could see increased playing time after Peters' injury.
