Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/29/15 10:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's new contract should be able to get worked out this offseason, according to team president Michael Bidwill. 'Larry and I have met about it, and I know he's interested in getting something resolved,' Bidwill said. 'I think we'll get this all worked out.'
Huddle Up: Most figured the soon-to-be 32-year-old Fitzgerald's run with the Cards was over, but it sounds as if there's been quite a bit of negotiation going on, and most all reports have things progressing toward a new deal. Stay tuned ...
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 1/21/15 5:47pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) 'should be ready to go' for the team's offseason workouts after suffering a right knee injury that caused him to miss the final three regular season games, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Ideally Stanton will be working on being the backup plan to Carson Palmer, but as the Cardinals found out the hard way this season you can never have too many quarterbacks.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 1/20/15 10:06pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) is ahead of schedule and could return for organized team activities this offseason, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: The timetable seems a little optimistic for the 35-year-old QB given he was injured in early November, but it does sound like the recovery is progressing smoothly.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/7/15 12:41am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and the team have reportedly both made positive movement regarding Fitzgerald's re-signing.
Huddle Up: Fitz will count an untenable $23.6 million against the cap next season so there likely remains plenty of restructuring to be done if he's going to stay with Arizona.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 1/6/15 1:44pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (shoulder) will not need surgery on his fractured scapula. The team hopes he will be able to return in time for organized team activities this offseason.
Huddle Up: Good news for Brown, who will be battling to retain his spot in what's likely to be a reconfigured Arizona WR corps next season.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 1/5/15 12:04am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton said he will not need any more surgery on his injured knee. Stanton said there was a realistic chance that he would have been able to play if the team advanced in the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Stanton will now have plenty of time to heal, and he projects as the backup to Carson Palmer next season in the desert.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/4/15 9:05am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said it was too soon to think about his future with the team following a 27-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Various reports out of Arizona suggest the team is either prepared to absorb his $23.6 million cap hit for 2015, or will ask him to take a pay cut. There is also speculation he'll be cut or traded, though at present the Cardinals have given no such indication. Fitzgerald's status will be one of the Cards' main story lines this offseason.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 1/4/15 5:47pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (shoulder) is be sidelined for 4-to-6 months because of a fractured scapula.
Huddle Up: The second-year wideout finished with 22 catches for 229 yards and two TDs this season but did not catch a pass before being injured in Saturday's wild-card loss. Even if he's out a full six months, he should be good to go for training camp.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 1/4/15 8:39pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he is on track to return in May or June.
Huddle Up: Palmer's progress will be monitored closely as his health figures to be the key for the Cards getting back to the postseason.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/4/15 8:39pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could receive interest from the New England Patriots if he is released by the Cardinals this offseason.
Huddle Up: A match that's easy to envision -- but only at the right price for the Pats.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/1/15 3:31pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald does not expect to be back with the team in 2015, according to a source. Fitzgerald is scheduled to count $23.6 million against the salary cap next season and likely will not restructure his contract again. Fitzgerald is also not happy with his role in the offense and that he is no longer a focal point.
Huddle Up: Fitz will turn 32 before the 2015 season kicks off and his 63 receptions for 784 yards marked his lowest single-season totals since his rookie season while his two TD receptions were easily the low-water mark for his career. A fresh start with a new team and a better QB situation, though, could certainly re-invigorate the veteran for a season or two.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 1/1/15 3:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) will not play in the Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 3 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: No real surprise here as it'll be Ryan Lindley starting Saturday against the Panthers, and the Cards just have to hope that the QB's improved showing (23-of-39 for 316 yards and 2 TDs) from the regular-season finale will carry over -- only without the three interceptions.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/26/14 3:11pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) had arthroscopic surgery to fight an infection in his knee, according to a league source. Stanton may be done for the year.
Huddle Up: Another brutal setback for the Cards and their chances of advancing in the playoffs and certainly a red flag for those who be considering using any Arizona pass-catcher in postseason fantasy play.
Ryan Lindley - QBPosted 12/25/14 6:51pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley will start the team's Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Earlier in the week, Cards coach Bruce Arians announced rookie fourth-round pick Logan Thomas would get the start, but has changed course and is sticking with Lindley. Regardless, the news remains not good for team's pass-catchers as Lindley is still looking for his first career NFL TD pass.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/25/14 9:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: The Cards are hoping to have the QB available for the playoffs, but that certainly remains a question mark if he's still unable to do anything in practice.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/24/14 1:48pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) will receive some practice time this week and has around an 85 percent chance of being ready for the team's first playoff game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Something to keep in mind if you're planning on indulging in some postseason fantasy play as there is some some hope remaining for the Cards' skill-position players.
Logan Thomas - QBPosted 12/22/14 5:12pm ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Logan Thomas has been named the starting quarterback for Week 17, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals are obviously looking for answers at quarterback right now. It's doubtful that Thomas is it. Hopeful Drew Stanton will return for the playoffs but this will likely be a season of "what could have been" in Arizona.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 12/22/14 8:12pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) will not be ready to start in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Bruce Arians. The team is hoping that Stanton can be ready to play in the team's first playoff game, whether it's in the wild card or divisional round. Stanton had some swelling in his right knee after a practice last week, but the swelling went down quickly.
Huddle Up: Continued bad news for those owning Cards' skill-position players as rookie Logan Thomas will start the regular-season finale against the Niners.
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.
