07/23/17DBElie BoukaAnkleQUESTIONABLEBouka injured his ankle during Saturday's training camp practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The extent of Bouka's injury isn't clear. If it proves to be serious, placing him on the physically unable to perform list is an option likely to be considered.

07/22/17LBJarvis JonesQuadricepsOUTThe Cardinals placed Jones (quad) on the non-football injury list Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

After injuring his quadriceps during a test run Friday, Jones will focus on rehab rather than practice for the foreseeable future. Once cleared, he'll resume serving as depth to starting outside linebackers Chandler Jones and Markus Golden (foot).

06/07/17LBMarkus GoldenFootQUESTIONABLEGolden (foot) has been battling plantar fasciitis this offseason, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Although Golden has been limited at times throughout the Cardinals' offseason program due to the plantar fasciitis, this issue doesn't appear to be anything serious in the grand scheme of things. However, that could always change if it lingers into training camp and the preseason, so don't be surprised if Arizona management continues to take a cautious approach with its reigning sack leader by limiting which drills he can partake in.

06/07/17DLRobert NkemdicheHamstringQUESTIONABLENkemdiche hurt his hamstring during Tuesday's OTA, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The severity of Nkemdiche's injury isn't clear, but it could be enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of OTAs. However, head coach Bruce Arians doesn't sound too concerned, saying Tuesday that Nkemdiche has had "a hell of a spring" and even if he were to miss the Cardinals' final two practices before training camp starts up in late July that "it won't mean anything." Thus, it doesn't sound like this hamstring ailment is anything that should keep the second-year defensive end sidelined for long, let alone linger into the regular season.

01/25/17DBTyvon BranchGroinQUESTIONABLEBranch (groin) took a $2 million paycut for the upcoming season, Kent Somers of AZ Central Sports reports.

The move gives the Cardinals $2 million in cap space after they agreed to terms with the likes of Antoine Bethea, Phil Dawson, Chandler Jones and Karlos Dansby. Branch will become a free agent next season.

01/25/17WRJaron BrownKneeQUESTIONABLEBrown expects to begin practicing without a knee brace at some point in the next two weeks, Scott Bordow and Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports. "I've been kind of transitioning without it for the last month or so and it's felt great without it," Brown said. "Personally for me, I feel like I obviously move a lot more fluid without the brace. It's really more of a mental thing than anything."

With training camp underway in Arizona, Brown has been allowed on the practice field, but his number of reps has been capped in order to avoid any aggravation of his healing ACL. He's already been allowed to run at full speed for approximately two months, so his proclamation to get rid of the brace in the near future isn't far-fetched. On the other hand, he'll also be held out of action strategically, as he was Monday, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Once he's given the all-clear, Brown will compete for one of the fringe spots at wideout, with a roster spot likely assured due to his special teams acumen, barring no setbacks on the health front.

01/25/17LBAlani FuaKneeQUESTIONABLEFua was placed on the IR due to a knee injury, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Fua dealt with a knee injury during the early portion of the preseason, but may have suffered a setback resulting in his Injured Reserve designation. The Cardinals signed Joplo Bartu to provide additional depth at inside linebacker with the open roster spot.

01/25/17DBTony JeffersonKnee - MCLQUESTIONABLEJefferson (knee - MCL) signed a four-year, $36 million contract with the Ravens on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jefferson's signing comes as no surprise after he was linked with the Ravens on Wednesday. He'll join last year's prized free agent signing, Eric Weddle, to form one of the best safety combos in the NFL.

01/25/17DBMike JenkinsKneeQUESTIONABLEJenkins (knee) will be placed on IR, ending his season.

Jenkins was brought in at the beginning of training camp as the Cardinals looked to strengthen the depth of their defensive backfield. However, the veteran suffered an ACL injury in Sunday's preseason game and had to be carted off the field. At 31, it's tough to guess where Jenkins will go from here and if he'll be revitalize his career after a year on the sidelines.

01/25/17TEIfeanyi MomahWristQUESTIONABLEMomah (wrist) will have a chance to be one of Arizona's top tight ends in 2017, Jim Koch of Raising Zona reports.

Momah saw each of his last two seasons cut short due to injury. A torn ACL in 2015 and a broken wrist in 2016 led to two straight years on IR. His contract with Arizona runs through 2018 and he'll have a chance to earn a role as one of the team's top tight end options. He's expected to be a full go in time for spring practices after being shut down for the season back in November.
