Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/19/14 6:50pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Sure Fitz isn't going to miss this one, but seriously, for fantasy purposes, it's Ryan Lindley and possibly rookie Logan Thomas at QB going up against the Seahawks' D. You have better WR options.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/18/14 10:12am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) said this injury is different from any other he's ever had, and he said it's too soon to know if he could return to play in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. He hasn't had any setbacks and started jogging with a brace on his right knee this week. Stanton watched practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and has thrown a ball recently. 'It's felt good,' Stanton said. 'It's one of those things you just go to kinda take time and the healing process is different for everybody.'
Huddle Up: You know you're in a sticky wicket when getting Drew Stanton back represents an upgrade to your quarterback position, yet that's exactly where the NFC-leading Cardinals sit.
Logan Thomas - QBPosted 12/13/14 12:08am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Logan Thomas and QB Ryan Lindley are both options to start in Week 16, but head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Dec. 12, that he won't make a decision on a starter until Sunday, Dec. 14.
Huddle Up: Arizona plays the Seahawks in Weeks 16. Regardless of who starts at quarterback, no one on the Cardinals offense is going to be much of a fantasy factor next week.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/12/14 12:21am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton was ruled out for the remainder of the team's game Thursday, Dec. 11 after suffering a right-knee injury in the third quarter.
Huddle Up: It's been tough enough for the Cards' pass-catchers going from Carson Palmer to Stanton, and now it may be Ryan Lindley, who was 4-of-10 for 30 yards in relief in his first action since 2012, finishing out the season if Stanton's knee injury turns out serious.
Kerwynn Williams - RBPosted 12/12/14 11:03am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams (32) and RB Stepfan Taylor (29) were at nearly an even split in touches Thursday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Neither was particularly effective against the stout Rams' defense. Going forward, expect the split--or worse, "hot hand"--approach, with Williams likely having a bit more fantasy value.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/12/14 11:03am ET
Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) may have suffered an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament. He had a previous tear in the same knee.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will move forward with Ryan Lindley and Logan Thomas at quarterback, unless they hit the scrap heap for another veteran. Makes a deep playoff run trickier, that's for sure; it also could torpedo what little fantasy value Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd still had.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained knee, and he's listed as week-to-week, according to a source. Stanton's season isn't believed to be finished.
Huddle Up: Great news for the Cards, but it very much remains to be seen if he'll be able to play and be of any fantasy use in the team's final two regular-season games.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/11/14 11:16pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) is questionable to return to the team's game Thursday, Dec. 11, after suffering a right knee injury in the third quarter. QB Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton.
Huddle Up: Another QB has gone down for the star-crossed Cards as Stanton (12-of-20, 109 yards) was taken into the lockerroom for evaluation after being unable to put much weight on his right leg. Not surprisingly, it was the recently re-signed but more experienced Lindley who was thrust into action instead of rookie Logan Thomas. More info on Stanton's injury should be forthcoming.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/10/14 6:08pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) fully practiced Wednesday, Dec. 10, and is probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Green light for Fitzgerald owners again this week, albeit in a tough matchup against one of the league's best defenses over the last month.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/9/14 11:48pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (ankle, knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Tuesday, Dec. 9, due to ankle and knee injuries.
Huddle Up: Stanton should be fine to start Thursday in St. Louis but faces a rugged challenge against what's been one of the league's best defenses over the last month.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/9/14 11:48pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Tuesday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Fitz was targeted a team-high nine times in his return to action on Sunday and figures to be similarly involved Thursday night in St. Louis, although his fantasy owners are hoping for better bottom-line results than the 4-34 performance he had in Week 14.
Kerwynn Williams - RBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor is still the team's starting running back, but Kerwynn Williams will still get opportunities.
Huddle Up: Taylor got the start against the Chiefs as well but was quickly replaced by Williams. This is looking like a committee going forward but Williams offers the most upside. He should be picked up off the waiver wire this week.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Ellington's season comes to an end. The Cardinals didn't shy away from making the undersized Ellington a feature back but he paid the prize by battling injuries all year. Arizona will go forward with Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams at running back.
Kerwynn Williams - RBPosted 12/7/14 9:01pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Kerwynn Williams carried 19 times for 100 yards in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was activated from the practice squad Friday, Dec. 5, when RB Michael Bush was released.
Huddle Up: Stepfan Taylor got the start for an injured Andre Ellington but he was quickly replaced by Williams. With Ellington headed to IR, Williams should be picked up in all leagues this week for the remainder of the season.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/7/14 10:22pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) is likely headed for the Reserve/Injured list, a source said Sunday, Dec. 7. Ellington is scheduled to visit a specialist this week in Philadelphia.
Huddle Up: Ellington's fantasy season is over. Owners should target Kerwynn Williams this week on the waiver wire. Williams ran for 100 yards on 19 carries against the Chiefs on Sunday and will likely get the start Thursday night in St. Louis.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/5/14 6:00pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot) has been ruled out for Week 14, according to head coach Bruce Arians. RB Stepfan Taylor will be the starting running back for the game.
Huddle Up: Tough timing for Ellington owners heading into the fantasy playoffs, but at least the Cards made the announcement Friday instead of waiting until Sunday afternoon. Taylor will start, but Marion Grice, Robert Hughes and possibly the just-activated Kerwynn Williams likely will also be involved so you might be better off looking elsewhere for a fill-in RB.
Michael Bush - RBPosted 12/5/14 6:05pm ET
The Arizona Cardinals on Friday, Dec. 5 released RB Michael Bush and TE Matthew Mulligan , while LB Matt Shaughnessy (knee) was activated from the short-term Reserve/Injured list. Also, RB Kerwynn Williams has been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.
Huddle Up: So Bush's short stay with the Cards will end without a touch, whittling the list of likely Week 14 replacements for the injured Andre Ellington to Stepfan Taylor and Marion Grice.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/5/14 6:09pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is not 100 percent at this point and will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 14 game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Ugh as the Cards have a late-afternoon kickoff. Fitzgerald, who's missed the last two games, has been limited all week in practice and would be a risky play anyway given the struggles of QB Drew Stanton and the Arizona offense of late.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/4/14 7:12pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) expects to start in Week 14. He said he's done everything the last two days to get back to the field.
Huddle Up: We heard this last week, and Fitzgerald wound up missing a second straight game. Still, he's certainly a better bet to return Sunday given the extra week of recovery time. In any case, Drew Stanton and the offense can certainly use the veteran's help as they've managed just 13 points over the last 2 games.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/3/14 12:16am ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) is dealing with a "severe" hip pointer, and he is unlikely to practice this week. He is hopeful of playing in the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He will likely be a game-time decision.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound overly promising, and of course it's a late-afternoon kickoff for the Cards, limiting the options for Ellington owners. There's no clear Arizona No. 2 back, either, with Stepfan Taylor, Marion Grice and, possibly, Michael Bush in the mix.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/3/14 7:59pm ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald returned to practice and is on track to play in Week 14 against the Chiefs. However, with Arizona's offense struggling, Fitz is only a WR3/4 right now.
Marion Grice - RBPosted 12/2/14 10:48am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Marion Grice will likely start if RB Andre Ellington (hip) can't go Sunday, Dec. 7, in Week 14. RBs Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes would also be in the mix.
Huddle Up: Early indications are that Ellington will try to play, but it would be wise to have a backup plan in place. Grice didn't look bad in relief of Ellington last week, and he's more Ellington-like than either Taylor or Hughes.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/1/14 12:23pm ET
Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's (hip) injury isn't serious, and he could return for Week 14 or Week 15.
Huddle Up: Ellington is hoping to play Sunday against Kansas City. If he can't go, some combination of Marion Grice, Michael Bush and Stepfan Taylor will try to replace him. Grice is the best pickup of the three but he's not a great start if Ellington is out.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 12/1/14 5:15pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) will not be able to practice on Wednesdays moving forward, according to head coach Bruce Arians. However, Ellington had been taking Wednesdays off anyway because of a foot injury.
Huddle Up: Ellington will likely be a gametime decision this week. Owners will have to monitor his practice participation closely later in the week to better gauge his availability.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 11/30/14 9:19pm ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) suffered a hip pointer in the Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Ellington told reporters after the game Sunday, Nov. 30, that he does not believe the injury is serious.
Huddle Up: More will be known in the next couple of days but hopefully the injury won't cost Ellington to miss anymore time. If Ellington can't go next week, Marion Grice, Stepfan Taylor and Michael Bush will fight for carries.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 11/28/14 10:25am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he's highly unlikely to play in Week 13 Sunday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: Fitz is two weeks removed from what is being reported as a Grade 2 MCL sprain, so his unavailability hardly comes as a surprise. The Cards will lean on Michael Floyd and John Brown to pick up the passing game slack this week.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 11/28/14 5:54pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 28, and will be a game-time decision for Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said Fitzgerald will not be limited if he is active for the game.
Huddle Up: Another week, another GTD on Fitz, and -- to the chagrin of fantasy GMs -- it's another late-afternoon kickoff for the Cards.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 11/27/14 4:37pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Fitz's Week 12 status remains very much up in the air as he tries to avoid missing a second straight game. Stay tuned, but this appears headed toward another game-time decision.
Michael Bush - RBPosted 11/26/14 4:17pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Michael Bush fits the role of a big, bruising ball carrier who can be effective in the red zone and at the goal line, and head coach Bruce Arians is hoping Bush can fill the role that RB Jonathan Dwyer had. 'We really miss John,' Arians said. 'I like our backs but we need a guy that's going to pound it in there and close out some games in short yardage and goal-line situations,' Arians said. Bush has 12 touchdowns on 26 goal-line carries in his career. Arians said Bush is in 'great shape' after not having played this year.
Huddle Up: It certainly sounds like Bush will immediately be supplanting Stepfan Taylor as the Cards' short-yardage/change-of-pace back. Meanwhile, it's not good news but it's far from crippling for Andre Ellington's owners as he'll still be counted heavily as a pass-catcher and a big-play back without playing to his weaknesses by repeatedly running him the gut.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 11/25/14 1:13am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is unsure when he will return from his knee injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "We still don't know anything about Larry," Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "If we were practicing today, he would not practice. We'll see how he improves by Wednesday and go from there." General manager Steve Keim said Fitzgerald remains day-to-day a week after suffering a Grade 2 medial collateral ligament sprain. He was a game-time decision in Week 12 but 'couldn't run,' which led him to be inactive.
Huddle Up: Being unable to run tends to keep WRs out of NFL games, but it still did come down to a GTD so monitor late-week practice reports see if a turnaround is in the Cards for Fitz.
