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

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

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.

Kaelin Burnett
News

Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season

Brittan Golden
News
The Cardinals have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 21 players. Arizona cut the following players: RB Zach Bauman, LB Marcus Benard, OL Philip Blake, LB Jonathan Brown, WR Dan Buckner, OL John Estes, DT Bruce Gaston, WR Brittan Golden, TE Andre Hardy, CB Jimmy Legree, CB Bryan McCann, OL Kelvin Palmer, RB Jalen Parmele, DT Isaac Sopoaga, OL Anthony Steen, S Curtis Taylor, LB Adrian Tracy, DT Christian Tupou, S Anthony Walters, CB Teddy Williams and OL Nate Potter.
Larry Fitzgerald
News
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald got off to a very slow start this season, but seems revitalized by the return of Carson Palmer. Fitzgerald hauled in his second touchdown in three games Sunday, in a 24-20 win over the Eagles in Week 8.  

Fitzgerald put together his best game of the season Sunday, hauling in seven of 10 passes thrown his way for 160 yards and a touchdown. This performance gives him 17 receptions for 279 yards and two touchdowns in three games since Palmer's return from a shoulder injury.

Given Fitzgerald's age, we're going to probably wonder if he is done every time he deals with any kind of slump. However, the 31-year-old's recent play should do enough to alleviate any doubts about his abilities right now. He will try to keep it up in Week 9 against the Cowboys, and should probably be kept active in most Fantasy formats. 

Anthony Steen
News
The Cardinals have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 21 players. Arizona cut the following players: RB Zach Bauman, LB Marcus Benard, OL Philip Blake, LB Jonathan Brown, WR Dan Buckner, OL John Estes, DT Bruce Gaston, WR Brittan Golden, TE Andre Hardy, CB Jimmy Legree, CB Bryan McCann, OL Kelvin Palmer, RB Jalen Parmele, DT Isaac Sopoaga, OL Anthony Steen, S Curtis Taylor, LB Adrian Tracy, DT Christian Tupou, S Anthony Walters, CB Teddy Williams and OL Nate Potter.

News

Tyrann Mathieu
News
Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu has played a total of 20 snaps in the past two games as he works his way back from ACL surgery. "I'm still a few weeks away from being the guy I want to be," he told the Arizona Republic.

"That confidence is going to come, just with more playing time."

Mathieu hopes to return stronger after the team's Week 4 bye.

Alameda Ta'amu

Injury
Knee - IR. Designated for return
Carson Palmer
News
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed fewer than half his throws Week 8 against the Eagles, but he connected on two long touchdown throws to put him over 300 yards for the 34th time in his career.

Palmer finished 20 of 42 for a season-high 329 yards and two scores with no interceptions. It was his second 300-yard game in four starts this year.

Early in the third quarter, Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald on a slant and the 31-year-old wideout took it 80 yards for a touchdown. With 90 seconds left and his team trailing 20-17, Palmer lofted a perfect over-the-shoulder throw that rookie John Brown caught for the winning 75-yard score.

Palmer has thrown two touchdown passes in each of his four starts while committing just two turnovers in those games. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 9.

Rob Housler
News

Calais Campbell
News
Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell, who's missed two straight games with a sprained MCL, is active for the game against the Eagles. Campbell has 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in four games.
Michael Floyd
News
Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had a chance to find the end zone in Week 8, but that probably doesn't make Fantasy owners feel any better about the goose egg he threw up Sunday.

Floyd failed to haul in any of the four passes thrown his way, and was unable to hold on to a potential touchdown during the game. He finished the game without recording a stat, while watching fellow wide receivers John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald each top 100 yards with a touchdown.

Floyd was expected to be the team's top option in the passing game this season, but the quarterback issues have really hampered his production. Still, there is reason for optimism, as much of his other subpar efforts came without Carson Palmer. In Palmer's four starts, he has at least 10 Fantasy points in three of them.

Floyd is on pace for just 43 receptions and 806 yards through seven games, and is now third on the team in both categories. After Sunday's dud, he might make for a solid buy-low candidate if you want to take a risk on him.

Ed Stinson
News
The Cardinals signed three draft picks to four-year contracts: fourth-round quarterback Logan Thomas (Virginia Tech), fifth-round defensive lineman Ed Stinson (Alabama) and sixth-round receiver Walt Powell (Murray State).

Wideout Jaron Brown added a 7-yard reception. They'll all visit the Cowboys in Week 9.

Paul Fanaika
News
The Cardinals have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 6 matchup against the Redskins: running back Marion Grice, defensive tackle Bruce Gaston, tight end Troy Niklas (ankle), defensive end Calais Campbell (knee) and linebackers Desmond Bishop, Thomas Keiser and Glenn Carson (ankle).

Guard Paul Fanaika (ankle, calf) is active after being listed as questionable, while linebacker Kenny Demens (back) and cornerbacks Patrick Peterson (ankle) and Justin Bethel (shoulder) are also active after being listed as probable for Sunday's game.

Jared Veldheer
News
The addition of Jared Veldheer and the return of left guard Jonathan Cooper should make life easier for the Cardinals when they game plan versus opponents this season. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin admits that the right side of the line will involve a competition but overall he anticipates a huge jump in efficiency for the front five

" ... [T]he world knows we're looking to put the right side together. There is going to be great competition between Paul Fanaika and Ted Larsen and Earl (Watford)," Goodwin told the Arizona Republic. "Then you have Bobby (Massie), Bradley (Sowell) and along with Nate (Potter). The competition is going to be great and there is still the possibility of the draft, but who knows? It wasn't a great offensive line year last year, but the guys played consistently together and they got better as they went along."

John Carlson
News
The Cardinals got a slew of offensive contributions in their 24-20 win over the Eagles. Among them, tight end John Carlson caught two of six targets for 16 yards and running back Robert Hughes had two catches for 13 yards.

Wideout Jaron Brown added a 7-yard reception. They'll all visit the Cowboys in Week 9.

Mike Leach
News
All the Cardinals listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Rams are active. They include cornerback Javier Arenas, running back Andre Ellington, tight end D.C. Jefferson and tight end Mike Leach.
John Brown
News
Cardinals wide receiver John Brown broke free for a late touchdown in Week 8, giving him his best performance of the season.

Brown was on pace for another unremarkable game deep in the fourth quarter, as he had 44 yards on four catches at the two-minute warning. He made up for that with one play, however, his 75-yard, game-winning touchdown late in the fourth.

Brown has lived on big plays this season, with just two double-digit Fantasy-point efforts in seven games. Basically, when he finds the end zone, Brown has value, but has done little else to stand out.

Still, Brown is second on the team in targets over the last three games, with 11 receptions for 203 yards in that span. If you are desperate for help at receiver, it might make sense to look at him on waivers just in case he can turn this into something big. 

Marion Grice
News
The Cardinals have made RB Marion Grice, LB Desmond Bishop, LB Thomas Keiser, LB Glenn Carson, DT Bruce Gaston, TE Troy Niklas and DE Calais Campbell inactive Week 7 against the Raiders.

Both Niklas and Campbell had been ruled out prior to the contest. Carson was considered questionable due to an ankle injury. 

Jerraud Powers
News
The Cardinals DST did a nice job limiting the Chargers offensively in Monday's 18-17 win, but the unit came up with very few big plays. Arizona held San Diego to 290 total yards and just 2.2 yards per carry.

Cornerback Jerraud Powers intercepted Philip Rivers on a crossing route, his eighth career interception. Arizona recorded no sacks and was unable to recover a Rivers fumble.

The Cardinals DST has a chance to create more turnovers Week 2 when it visits the Giants.
