Tyrann 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.
Tyrann Mathieu (heel) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.
Despite missing one practice and being limited in the other two, Mathieu should be fine for Sunday's game. He's played 96 percent of the defensive snaps this season and is on pace for 93 tackles.
Cardinals safety Tyrann Tyrann Mathieu (heel) was limited at Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Mathieu has so far been stellar in all arenas, turning 96 percent of the Cardinals' defensive snaps into 29 tackles, two interceptions (one a pick-six), and a forced fumble. IDP owners should continue to trot him out there without fail as the season rolls along.
Cardinals safety Tyrann Tyrann Mathieu (heel) didn't practice Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Mathieu has been officially diagnosed with a bruised heel, but head coach Bruce Arians expects the defensive back to return to drills Thursday. On the backs of 29 tackles, two interceptions (including a pick-six), and one forced fumble, Mathieu has returned to IDP relevance in a big way this season. However, after an injury-filled 2014, any ailment should be monitored to ensure it doesn't affect his status once game day arrives.
The Honey Badger took the first interception to the house for a 33-yard touchdown in the first quarter of Sunday's game. This came one play after teammate Justin Bethel intercepted a pass for a touchdown on the first play of the game.
Mathieu now has 17 tackles and two interceptions through the first three games, and he should provide solid IDP value while playing in such a strong all-around defense.
