    04/27/16DBJustin BethelFootPROBABLEBethel underwent surgery to repair a fractured foot this week, which is expected to sideline the cornerback during OTAs, the Arizona Republic reports.

    Bethel reportedly played through a "slight" fracture in the foot last season, yet he was forced into a starting role following Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL in Week 15. In the following four contests (including playoffs), Bethel totaled 25 tackles (24 solo), four passes defended, and one interception. With Jerraud Powers exploring free agency, Bethel is currently penciled in as the starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson (ankle), but the upcoming NFL Draft and his recovery may impact his current standing.

    04/27/16DBTyrann MathieuKneeQUESTIONABLEMathieu isn't targeting a specific date for his return to the field from a torn ACL in his right knee, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "I don't really want to rush it," Mathieu said recently. "Whenever I'm comfortable, that's when I want to go out there."

    Mathieu's cautious approach has basis in fact, as the injury that ended his rookie season in 2013 (ACL and LCL tears in his left knee) sapped his effectiveness in the subsequent campaign. Fortunately for the defensive back, this particular recovery effort has been "so much easier" when compared with his previous rehabilitation. While his activity level was non-existent in the aftermath of the first surgery, he's already progressed to running on a treadmill in a harness, and there's a belief that he's only a few months away from wearing a helmet and kicking off football drills. No matter the path he takes, the offseason may include a contract extension at some point after he achieved the first Pro Bowl and All-Pro bids of his career this past season.

    04/27/16TEIfeanyi MomahKneePROBABLEMomah (knee) will be returning to the Cardinals in 2016, as the exclusive rights free agent was tendered a contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Momah showed promise throughout his first preseason with the Cardinals, but a torn meniscus suffered on the eve of the regular season resulted in a stay on injured reserve. Following Thursday's move, head coach Bruce Arians will thus get another look at the tight end, who will join Darren Fells, Troy Niklas, and Gerald Christian, at least, in the offseason program.

    04/27/16DBPatrick PetersonAnklePROBABLEPeterson's recovery from right ankle surgery is expected to encompass 6-to-8 weeks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    With knowledge of his recovery timetable coming to the fore, Peterson is a candidate to miss the entire offseason program, despite optimism that OTAs could be in his future in the aftermath of this week's procedure. Even if he fails to take the field before training camp, he's hopeful that he'll avoid any of the recurring issues from the past two campaigns, though his ironman status as a professional remains intact.

    04/27/16TERhett EllisonKneeQUESTIONABLEEllison (knee) re-signed with the Vikings on Tuesday.

    Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in Week 17, leaving him uncertain for the start of the 2017 season. He's been useful to the Vikings as a blocker, but with just 42 receptions in 58 career appearances, Ellison has never emerged as a key part of the passing game.

    04/27/16DBAntone ExumRibsPROBABLEExum (ribs) has been placed on injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The Vikings have dealt with a ridiculous string of injuries at the safety position over the past few weeks, allowing Exum to make a couple of starts. The team is now left with Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring), Robert Blanton (knee), Andrew Sendejo (knee) and newly-signed Anthony Harris.

    04/27/16DLLinval JosephToePROBABLEJoseph (foot) will have toe surgery during the offseason, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports

    This shouldn't come as any surprise, given that Joseph dealt with a foot injury throughout the entire second half of the season. He missed Weeks 12-16, but with 56 tackles in just 12 games, Joseph cemented his reputation as one of the league's better run-stopping interior linemen. He only has 12.5 sacks in 81 career games.
