Position Listing
Lyle Sendlein
News
The Cardinals have nine players listed on the injury report for Week 3. Punter David Zastudil (groin) and linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) were the only players officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Deemed questionable were tight end Rob Housler (hip), defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (calf) and quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder).

Linebacker Kevin Minter (quad), center Lyle Sendlein (ankle), running back Andre Ellington (foot) and linebacker Larry Foote (shoulder) were each ruled probable for Sunday.
Darnell Dockett
News
The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Daryl Washington
News
Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He was suspended four games last season for violating the same policy. 

"It's completely unacceptable that Daryl has once again put us in this position," Cards general manager Steve Keim said in a statement. "We all know what the consequences are and will deal with them. From a personal standpoint, our hope is that this suspension will give Daryl the opportunity to accept the necessary help and guidance to get his life back on track and we will certainly support him however we can."

Washington had 134 total tackles and nine sacks in 2012 and 75 total hits and three sacks in 12 games last season. 

Injury
Suspension - Eligible for reinstatement before 2015 season

Ted Larsen
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that there's a "really good chance" offensive lineman Ted Larsen will be the team's starting left guard, azcardinals.com reports.

Jonathan Cooper, a first-round pick in 2013, was set to start at the position, but he has remained sidelined with a turf toe injury. General manager Steve Keim called Larsen one of the team's best five linemen in camp thus far. He has been filling in at center with Lyle Sendlein out, but Larsen will likely shift to the left guard position of Sendlein can return to practice as expected this week.

The list includes defensive end Calais Campbell (knee), linebacker Kenny Demens (knee), safety Tony Jefferson (concussion), safety Rashad Johnson (knee), tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) and cornerback Patrick Peterson (concussion).
Stepfan Taylor
News
Cardinals running back Stepfan Taylor had a tough game Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Taylor received 11 carries, but only gained 19 yards during the contest. With Ryan Lindley at quarterback, the Seahawks defense could focus on stopping the run all game. Taylor averaged just 1.7 yards per attempt during the contest. He was a slightly larger threat in the passing game, pulling down two receptions for 25 yards.

Taylor will take on the 49ers Week 17.

Ryan Spadola
News

Spadola was with the Dolphins during camp, but was waived in August. He saw time with the Dolphins and Jets in 2013. 

Chandler Catanzaro
News
Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro hit two field goals Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Catanzaro was the only source of the Cardinals' offense during the contest. He managed to convert from 27 yards out and 32 yards out. The Cardinals could not find the end zone, so Catanzaro did not have an extra point opportunity. Catanzaro will take on the 49ers Week 17.

Brittan Golden
News
The Cardinals have listed QB Drew Stanton, WR Brittan Golden, S Chris Clemons, G Jonathan Cooper, NT Alameda Ta'amu, OL Anthony Steen, DE Kareem Martin as inactive Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Larry Fitzgerald
News
Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald was held in check Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald received a team-high 11 targets, but only came up with four receptions. He gained 33 yards, averaging 8.3 yards per catch. Fitzgerald did draw two illegal use of hands penalties during the contest, so was useful on some of his incompletions. 

Fitzgerald will look for more Week 17 against the 49ers.

Mathieu fractured his thumb Week 13 and has missed two straight games. A pin was inserted during surgery. Mathieu conceded that catching the ball would be "quite a trick," per the website.

Mathieu has 29 tackles and an interception in 11 games.

Alameda Ta'amu
News

Patrick Peterson
News
The Mutual Admiration Society has two steadfast members in the NFL fraternity - Lions super wideout Calvin Johnson and Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. The two will be going head-to-head Sunday at Arizona.

"No doubt there's respect," Johnson told MLive.com. "You've got players that play hard out there on the field, make plays for their team. So, there's definitely a big level of respect there."

Peterson feels the same about Johnson, calling him "by far the most dynamic and athletic receiver in the league" during a recent radio interview.

Johnson, however, will likely not be matched up against Peterson throughout. Antonio Cromartie could also line up against Megatron at times, though his primary assignment will be Golden Tate.

Matt Shaughnessy
News
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is active for Thursday night's matchup with the Rams after being listed on the team's final injury report as probable to play.

Other probables who are active Thursday include quarterback Drew Stanton (ankle, knee), tackle Jared Veldheer (ankle) and linebackers Larry Foote (foot), Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder) and Lorenzo Alexander (knee).

Both cornerback Antonio Cromartie (ankle) and defensive tackle Ed Stinson (toe) were listed as questionable to play Thursday and both are active as well.

News
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his ACL, according to the team's official website. Palmer suffered the injury Week 10 against the Rams and was waiting for the swelling on his knee to go down before having the procedure.

Palmer, who signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury, is expected to have a long road back in his rehabilitation process. He is targeting a return at some point near the end of Arizona's OTAs in June.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season

Tight end Rob Housler made a 20-yard grab, wideout Ted Ginn had an 8-yard catch and tight end John Carlson added a 1-yard reception. Rookie receiver John Brown was targeted four times without a catch.

They'll all visit the Rams on Thursday.

News

Kelvin Palmer
News
The Cardinals have reportedly signed running back Michael Bush on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Bush has not played in 2014 and averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 2013. His best season occurred in 2011 when he rushed for 977 yards and scored seven touchdowns for the Raiders.

To make room for Bush, the Cardinals released running back Kerwynn Williams  from the 53-man roster and Kelvin Palmer from the practice squad. The Cardinals play at Atlanta Week 13.

Jonathan Dwyer
News
Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he assaulted his wife during two arguments in July at their Phoenix apartment, according to the Associated Press.

News

Ryan Lindley
News
Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley failed to find the end zone Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Lindley completed 18 of 44 passes for 216 yards. He threw one interception and fumbled during the contest. Lindley couldn't get much going against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. When he did have opportunties to throw, Lindley had to settle for check-downs. He averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt. The Seattle pass rush gave him a hard time, coming up with four sacks. 

If Drew Stanton is unable to return, Lindley would take on the 49ers Week 17.

Ted Ginn
News
Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught two of his three targets for a team-high 55 yards in his team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15.

Floyd kicked off the team's second scoring drive by hauling in a 49-yard pass, beating his man deep and catching a perfectly placed ball before being brought down. He didn't have much more of an impact on the game, but the Cardinals resorted to ball control and excellent defense to pick up the win.

Larry Fitzgerald was the only Arizona player with more than two receptions, catching seven passes for 30 yards. Rookie John Brown caught two of his six targets for 22 yards. Tight end John Carlson and wide receiver Ted Ginn each caught their only target.

The Cardinals have a tough matchup on the schedule next week, facing the Seahawks at home in Week 16.
