    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Contract extension imminent?

    The Cardinals will consider a contract extension for Mathieu during the offseason, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports. For the second time in his three-year career, Mathieu's season came to a close due to a torn ACL, but not before he proved himself to be one of the NFL's top safeties. In just 14 games, he was among the Cardinals' leading tacklers with 89 on the ledger, which he supplemented with five interceptions (including one pick-six), one sack, and one forced fumble. While it's arguable to invest too much in a player coming off serious knee injuries, medical science has made leaps and bounds in recent years, meaning teams have less to worry about in such scenarios.

    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Placed on injured reserve

    Mathieu (torn ACL) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Mathieu, a Defensive Player of the Year candidate and IDP standout, will see his season come to an early end for the second time in three years because of a torn ACL. Even considering that the injuries didn't occur in the same knee, he's highly questionable to be ready for Week 1 in 2016. In the meantime, the Arizona defense is significantly weakened, with Justin Bethel likely taking on the majority of Mathieu's snaps.

    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Undergoing MRI Monday

    Mathieu is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his right knee injury suffered Sunday night against the Eagles. Mathieu tweaked his knee without contact from an opponent after making an interception during Sunday night's game. While the nature of that injury incident raises cause for concern, Mathieu's MRI testing Monday should help clarify his status moving forward. One of the league's most dynamic, versatile playmakers, Mathieu is certainly someone the Cardinals would hate to lose.

    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Amasses 11 tackles in Week 14

    Mathieu amassed 11 tackles (10 solo), including one tackle for loss, and a pass defended in Thursday's win against the Vikings. After notching no more than eight tackles prior to Week 12, Mathieu has reached double-digits twice over the last three games, totaling 27 (24 solo) in all. The run has put the safety within striking distance of Deone Bucannon for the team lead in the category -- 88 versus 84 tackles -- while Mathieu has played a direct part in five of the Cardinals' 25 takeaways on the season. The breakout campaign has pushed Mathieu into the upper crust of defensive backs for IDP formats and into the discussion for Defensive Player of the Year.

    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Racks up 13 tackles, picks off pass Sunday

    Mathieu racked up 13 tackles (11 solo) and one interception during Sunday's win in San Francisco. The career-high tackle total pushes Mathieu firmly into second on the Cardinals with 70 (63 solo), which he's supplemented with four interceptions (one for a touchdown), one forced fumble, and one sack this season. Playing a roving free safety role in a secondary that trots out five or six defensive backs on most snaps, he's put together a case for Defensive Player of the Year with five games remaining.

    Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu: Active Sunday

    Mathieu (heel) is active for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. The Cardinals' secondary boasts some banged-up players, including Mathieu, but their relative depth should keep them fresh for this Week 6 contest. With a stat-laden line through five outings -- 29 tackles, two interceptions (including one pick-six), and a forced fumble -- he should continue to be trotted out in IDP formats.
