Cardinals' Kevin Minter: Notches 81 tackles in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter racked up 81 tackles (59 solo), including a career-high 3.5 sacks, in 16 games during the 2016 season.

Throughout his fourth campaign, Minter was jostling for the team lead in tackles with Deone Bucannon (ankle) and Tony Jefferson (knee), only to finish third behind the duo, despite both landing on injured reserve within the final three weeks. After being contained to special teams as a rookie and LB depth in 2014, Minter has earned at least 88 percent of the defensive snaps in both of the last two seasons. In fact, the inside linebacker hasn't missed a contest during that stretch, averaging 5.5 tackles per game along the way. Nevertheless, he's only forced one turnover in his career to date, so he may not be as desirable as an unrestricted free agent when the market opens on March 9.

Cardinals' Kevin Minter: Picks up two tackles for loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter posted seven tackles (six solo), including two tackles for loss, in Sunday's tie with the Seahawks.

With 5.3 tackles per game, Minter is behind last season's pace (5.9 per) but has put together a more well-rounded game log to date. He's already surpassed his sack total entering the campaign, racking up 2.5 to bring his career total to four. Moreover, he's tacked on four tackles for loss, including a stop of Christine Michael for minus-five yards Sunday to push the Seahawks to third and 25 early in the fourth quarter. On the year, the starting ILB pair of Minter and Deone Bucannon have held down the fort in the middle of the Cardinals' defense, helping to keep opponents out of the end zone for nine consecutive quarters.

Cardinals' Kevin Minter: Passing concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Minter (concussion) has cleared concussion protocol and will practice on Wednesday.

Minter will now be able to return to the field after suffering a mild concussion this past Sunday. He could see his reps monitored in Monday's tilt with the Jets, though, in which case Joplo Bartu would likely see increased action.

Cardinals' Kevin Minter: Clearance could come Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Minter (concussion) is anticipated by coach Bruce Arians to clear concussion protocol Tuesday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.

Minter landed in the league's protocol after suffering a concussion last Thursday versus the 49ers, but his condition was initially described as "very mild," somewhat explaining his expected quick recovery. With the Cardinals' next game not until next Monday, Minter seemingly stands a good chance of not missing any action due to the issue.

Cardinals' Kevin Minter: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bruce Arians relayed Friday that Minter has entered the concussion protocol, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

While Minter is in the initial stages of the protocol, Arians told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com that the linebacker's concussion is "very mild" and he "should be fine." Indeed, with a week and a half between games, Minter has plenty of time to achieve optimal health for the Cardinals' next game on Monday, Oct. 17 versus the Jets.
