Position Listing
Corey Peters
Peters (foot) returned to practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.

The 28-year-old defensive tackle received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis on Aug. 4, and has not practiced since. It is unsurprising that the Cardinals took their time with bringing Peters back in order to avoid a lingering issue.

Gabe Martin
No Updates
Brandon Williams
Williams logged no snaps on defense and 12 on special teams in Sunday's defeat in Buffalo.

Williams earned the starting spot opposite Patrick Peterson in Week 1 almost by default due to Justin Bethel's lingering foot injury and the placement of Mike Jenkins (knee) and Elie Bouka (hamstring) on injured reserve. Among other faux pas, Williams was burned off the line by the Patriots' Julian Edelman for an easy touchdown in that contest, spurring the Cardinals to test recent addition Marcus Cooper in Week 2. Cooper took full advantage with two interceptions of Jameis Winston and has now notched exactly seven tackles in back-to-back games. Thus, Williams has thus been relegated to special teams duty for the time being.

Olsen Pierre
No Updates
Rodney Gunter
The Cardinals signed two draft picks on Wednesday, the team announced

Second-rounder linebacker Markus Golden and fourth-round defensive end Rodney Gunter both signed contracts with the team.  

Durell Eskridge
Eskridge (arm) was released by the Cardinals on Monday.

Formerly of the Jets, the undrafted Eskridge latched on with the Cardinals earlier this month and recorded two tackles in Arizona's preseason opener last Friday. It's uncertain whether Eskridge hurt his arm during that game, as well as how severe the injury really is, but he may still have time to tryout for another team before the regular season begins.

Arm - Injured Reserve
Shaquille Riddick
Riddick (oblique) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Riddick suffered a torn oblique Aug. 22 and was previously considered questionable for Week 1. However, his full-fledged participation on Wednesday and complete absence from the injury report suggests he's back to full strength and ready to play in the Cardinals' regular season opener Sunday against the Patriots.

Kevin Minter
Minter (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Minter was limited in practice earlier in the week as a result of an ankle injury, but returned to the field for Friday's practice session. The linebacker is expected to to start on Sunday, but his reps could be monitored heavily.

Mike Jenkins
Jenkins (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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Kameron Canaday
No Updates
Deone Bucannon
Bucannon wrangled a team-high nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Among the Cardinals' leading tacklers on a weekly basis, Bucannon predictably posted a team-best 112 tackles (93 solo) by the end of the regular season, though Tyrann Mathieu had been giving him a run for his money until suffering a torn ACL in Week 15. Speaking of money, Bucannon has taken to his hybrid role at $-linebacker -- or safety/inside linebacker -- surpassing the output in every relevant category from a respectable rookie season in 2014.

Trevon Hartfield
No Updates
Tharold Simon
Simon was claimed by the Cardinals on Wednesday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.

Simon struggled with injuries during his time in Seattle, having played just 11 games across the past two seasons. Assuming he's completely over the knee injury that forced him from practice early last week, Simon now has a chance to rejuvenate his career alongside former LSU teammates Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu.

Tony Jefferson
Jefferson forced a fumble and registered nine tackles Sunday against the Bills.

Jefferson now has 30 tackles on the year while collecting at least nine in each contest. After posting just 78 tackles in each of the last two seasons, he looks like he could be ready to take a step forward in his fourth season. However, he'll need to improve on more than numbers in the tackle category, as he has just four sacks and four forced fumbles since the beginning of the 2014 season.

Elie Bouka
Bouka (hamstring) was placed on the Cardinals' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

The Canadian was signed as an undrafted rookie earlier in the offseason, but missed portions of the offseason while recovering from an Achilles injury suffered in 2015. However, he then suffered a lingering hamstring injury that has sidelined him for the majority of training camp. He had a solid chance of making the team had he stayed healthy, though, and will likely be given another opportunity to do so in 2017.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Stepfan Taylor
Taylor (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

A bruised knee forced Taylor to the sideline in Week 1. With limited practice sessions in advance of Sunday's game, though, Taylor is in line to handle his typical workload on special teams.

Harlan Miller
The Cardinals selected Miller in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 205th overall.

Arizona went the small-school route yet again Saturday by taking another secondary player out of a non-FBS program, nabbing Miller out of Southeastern Louisiana. Miller has decent size for a corner, checking in at 6-0, 182 with 31 3/8-inch arms. He lacks elite speed for the position, however, running a 4.57, 40-yard dash at his pro day, but he has been lauded for his fluidity in coverage and his willingness as a tackler. Miller looks to be a project at the next level, but Arizona is an excellent landing spot for developmental defensive backs.

Chandler Catanzaro
Catanzaro made both field goal attempts and four of five PATs during Sunday's dominating win against the Buccaneers.

Putting up its first 40-spot since Week 15 of last season, the Cardinals took advantage of a plus-five turnover differential with 17 points immediately following Jameis Winston coughing up the ball. By proxy, Catanzaro was handed a number of opportunities, including field goals from 22 and 40 yards out, but his first missed extra point of 2016 took place after Marcus Cooper's 60-yard pick-six. With only two successful FG on the ledger, though, Catanzaro currently sits 19th in scoring among kickers, which is a far cry from his third place showing last year.

D.J. Swearinger
Swearinger was listed as the Cardinals' starting strong safety on the initial depth chart of training camp, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Surprisingly, Swearinger appears before Tyvon Branch, who was the Cardinals' notable offseason addition to the secondary. Swearinger may have a leg up due to his spell in Arizona last season, but ultimately their participation in the preseason will determine who gets to operate next to a healthy Tyrann Mathieu (knee), once he's cleared for action.

Brittan Golden
Golden was inked to the Cardinals' practice squad Sunday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Golden's quest for a fringe roster spot may have been hindered by a lingering hamstring injury, but he impressed in the final two preseason games, accruing eight receptions for 128 yards. With only five wideouts on the 53-man roster, one ailment could be enough for Golden or fellow practice squad mate Chris Hubert to receive the call.

Cole Toner
No Updates
Larry Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald had seven receptions (on a team-high 12 targets) for 60 yards during Sunday's 33-18 loss in Buffalo.

The target count exceeds Fitzgerald's previous season high -- 10 in both of the first two games -- but he posted a campaign-worst in yards and didn't reach the end zone, after three combined touchdowns entering Sunday's outing. Like the rest of the Cardinals' receivers, chemistry with quarterback Carson Palmer was less than stellar, as the first five drives doubled as three-and-outs and the final four were dashed with Palmer interceptions. The faux pas aside, Fitzgerald will continue to be a favorite of Palmer in any situation, with double-digit looks still the weekly norm in the wideout's 13 NFL season.

Justin Bethel
Bethel (foot) practiced in full Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bethel has endured a slow recovery from offseason foot surgery, which is expected to impact him throughout the campaign. Active status in Week 1 equated to 22 snaps on special teams and none on defense, but perhaps Wednesday's full showing will open the door to work in the defensive backfield. After rookie corner Brandon Williams was torched by the Patriots on Sunday, Bethel is the prime candidate to make a run at the starting job opposite Patrick Peterson, pending his health, of course.

Foot - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. L.A. Rams
Frostee Rucker
Rucker (knee) will not play in Week 4 against the Buccaneers, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

Rucker did not practice this week after not playing in Week 3. Rodney Gunter projects to start at defensive end once again.

Knee - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Out for Week 4 vs. L.A. Rams
Tyrann Mathieu
Mathieu (knee) was removed from the Cardinals' injury report after logging a full practice on Friday, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

Just under eight months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL, Mathieu is reportedly still experiencing soreness in his knee, which is likely the reason for his limited practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. However, the soreness isn't preventing him playing. Rather, it's just restricting him to the free safety position until he recovers his ability to line up all over the field, as seen during his All-Pro 2015 campaign.

Zac Dysert
Dysert signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Dysert will be added to the Cardinals' practice squad. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll work his way onto the active roster, but barring any injuries, he'll likely stay put.

Markus Golden
Golden notched four sacks among 31 tackles during his rookie season in 2015.

A part of the Cardinals' middling pass rush, Golden ranked behind only mid-season pickup Dwight Freeney (eight) and Calais Campbell (five) in the sack department. With two forced fumbles also on the game log, Golden's output was respectable, as he garnered 49.5 percent of the defensive snaps in his first professional campaign. One of the team's biggest offseason needs is a more sustained pass rush, but no matter who joins the defensive ranks in the coming months, he's acquitted himself as a key cog for the future.

Marqui Christian
Christian was claimed off of waivers by the Rams on Thursday.

Christian, a fifth round selection of the 2016 NFL Draft, was waived by the Cardinals earlier in the week, but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. While the rookie isn't likely to see major action anytime soon, especially with a new team, he is expected to serve in a reserve role behind starting strong safety T.J. McDonald. The Rams released defensive back Isaiah Johnson to make room for Christian on the roster.

Evan Mathis
The Broncos signed two-time Pro Bowler Evan Mathis to a one-year deal on Tuesday, the team announced.

The deal that brought Mathis to Denver is worth $4 million.

Patrick Peterson
Peterson picked off his second pass of the season in Sunday's defeat at Buffalo.

Peterson may have made the defensive play of the week, gathering in a deep pass down the right sideline with his right hand and having the presence of mind to tap down both feet as he fell out of bounds. With interceptions in back-to-back games, he's now posted double-digit picks in each of his six NFL campaigns. The fast start may be fool's gold, though, as opposing quarterbacks will likely wise up to throwing his way as the season continues.

John Wetzel
The Cowboys signed defensive back Jemea Thomas and offensive tackle John Wetzel to the practice squad Tuesday.
D.J. Humphries
The Cardinals signed their last remaining unsigned draft pick on Monday. The team signed offensive lineman D.J. Humphries to a four-year, $8.9 million deal, with a $4.74 million bonus, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Humphries was the 24th overall pick in the 2015 draft out of the University of Florida. 

A.Q. Shipley
The Cardinals announced that they've signed center A.Q. Shipley to a two-year contract on Wednesday. 

Shipley started five of the 15 games he appeared in for the Colts in 2014, the only season he was with the team. Prior to joining Indianapolis, Shipley spent the 2013 season with the Ravens and started nine games at guard. Shipley also had a previous stint with the Colts in 2012. 

Tyvon Branch
Branch secured 10 tackles (nine solo) and one pass defended during Sunday's victory against the Buccaneers.

An offseason signee of the Cardinals, Branch has so far logged 78 percent of the defensive snaps, which ranks fourth among fellow defensive backs, while also picking up 61 percent on special teams. The multi-faceted defender should continue to receive plenty of run in a scheme that uses six DBs frequently and occasionally seven. Considering the usage and his veteran savvy, it's no surprise that he boasts the second-most tackles (16) on the team behind starting strong safety Tony Jefferson.

Groin - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. L.A. Rams
J.J. Nelson
Nelson (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Buccaneers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

In a receiving corps laden with depth, the Cardinals will opt to give the second-year wideout the week off due to the shoulder injury sustained in the regular season opener. Nelson's absence ensures that Jaron Brown will be the only reserve WR on Sunday.

Carson Palmer
Palmer completed 24 of 37 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Patriots.

As good of a job as the Patriots defense did early in the game, it was only a matter of time before Palmer and the powerful Arizona offense found their footing. Following consecutive touchdown drives in the second half, Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald put the Cardinals in range for a game-winning field goal, but Chandler Catanzaro was unable to convert. Palmer should heat up a bit quicker in Week 2, drawing a home matchup against Tampa Bay.

Elijhaa Penny
Penny carried a team-high 15 times for 43 yards in Friday's preseason game versus the Raiders. He failed to reel in his only target.

It was a struggle to generate any big plays for Penny, as he managed a long run of just six yards and averaged 2.9 yards per carry. He is seemingly buried on the depth chart at the moment behind Andre Ellington, Chris Johnson, Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor for backup duties behind David Johnson, and Friday's performance did little to boost his stock.

Mike Iupati
Cardinals offensive guard Mike Iupati (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Rams, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Making his Cardinals debut, Iupati will enter the starting lineup at left guard. The return of arguably the most adept run blocker on the team should help sustain, and perhaps even augment, the league's 13th-ranked offense on the ground entering Week 4.

Kareem Martin
Martin (knee) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports reports.

Martin's status for Week 3 doesn't look too promising as he continues to deal with the nagging knee issue. Alex Okafor figures to be the primary backup at outside linebacker if Martin remains out.

Knee - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. L.A. Rams
Earl Watford
The Cardinals declared guard Earl Watford, tight end Darren Fells, linebackers Desmond Bishop (hamstring) and Glenn Carson, defensive tackle Ed Stinson (toe), defensive end Josh Mauro and running back Kerwynn Williams inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Marcus Cooper
Cooper has been traded from the Chiefs to the Cardinals for an undisclosed draft pick.

Cooper figures to help the Cardinals' situation at cornerback, where All-Pro Patrick Peterson leads an otherwise unproven unit. A former seventh-round pick, Cooper totaled 65 tackles and three interceptions through his first two seasons, but made just two stops in 10 games after having his role reduced last term.

Marquis Bundy
Bundy was released by the Cardinals on Friday, Mike Jurecki of AZCentral.com reports.

Bundy signed with the team in June. He was projected as the ninth receiver on the Cardinals depth chart, so this move is not surprising.

Darren Fells
Fells corralled four of five passes for 31 yards during Sunday's victory against the Buccaneers.

Fells, Jermaine Gresham, and Troy Niklas each received between 20 and 23 snaps in the season-opening loss to the Patriots, but such a breakdown of TE reps didn't extend into Week 2. While Fells earned 45 of the Cardinals' 66 offensive snaps Sunday, Gresham and Niklas were afforded 24 apiece, which is a better representation of the depth chart. However, the array of options at quarterback Carson Palmer's disposal doesn't exactly lend itself to relevance for any of the tight ends in Arizona.

Drew Stanton
Stanton will be the Cardinals' No. 2 quarterback, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

No. 3 quarterback Matt Barkley had a nice showing in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, but his roster fate will ultimately still depend on whether the Cardinals are willing keep three quarterbacks. Stanton is locked in as Carson Palmer's top backup.

Andre Ellington
Ellington had one rush for two yards and one reception for nine yards in Sunday's win versus the Buccaneers.

With six more snaps Sunday, Ellington has been handed a whopping 15 through two contests, which ranks third behind David Johnson (99) and Chris Johnson (23). The latter Johnson received 21 of those in Week 2 as an ever-increasing deficit reached 33 points by the 12:11 mark of the fourth quarter. Perhaps the reserve RB reps will be tied to game conditions, but Ellington is currently averaging an unusable two touches per outing.

Evan Boehm
No Updates
David Johnson
Johnson notched 19 carries for 83 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's defeat at Buffalo. Additionally, he gathered in three of six passes for 28 yards.

The outing marks Johnson's third straight to start the season with at least 100 total yards from scrimmage, but he has yet to surpass the century mark in rushing or receiving in any game to date. With both of the team's end zone visits, the dual threat was about the only positive on an afternoon in which the Cardinals committed five turnovers, including four Carson Palmer interceptions and a snap over the holder's head that the Bills returned for a touchdown. Expect the second-year back to keep it rolling next Sunday in a divisional showdown against the Rams.

Drew Butler
Butler (ankle) did not participate at Wednesday's practice and is considered doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Rams, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

Butler was seen in a walking boot at Wednesday's practice, and while he may hold snaps for Chandler Catanzaro on Sunday, the chances of him punting against the Rams seem slim. If Butler sits, the Cardinals will need to look elsewhere to delegate punting responsibilities.

Calf - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Out for Week 4 vs. L.A. Rams
Alani Fua
Fua 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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Chandler Jones
Jones is expected to work as an outside pass rusher for the majority of his snaps in the upcoming season, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Under the direction of previous coach Bill Belichick, Jones was moved about often due to the Patriots' notorious game-specific schemes. In Arizona, Jones will no longer dabble inside, as the Cardinals immediately deemed him an outside linebacker after netting him via trade. After capping out at 12.5 sacks during his last regular season in New England, working in tandem with elite disrupter Calais Campbell could result in a career season and therefore elevated standing in IDP circles for Jones.

Xavier Williams
No Updates
Calais Campbell
Campbell notched six tackles (five solo) and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's win over the Packers.

Campbell had 2.5 sacks coming into Sunday's game, and he doubled that total by adding another 2.5 sacks on a day where the Cardinals recorded eight sacks as a team. He now has five on the year to go along with 59 tackles, and he should be an important piece for the Cardinals' defense moving forward. Campbell is good for a big game like this every once in awhile, but his overall value as an IDP is still fairly limited.

Michael Floyd
Floyd (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against St. Louis, FOX Sports 910's Mike Jurecki reports.

Floyd made a quick recovery from his concussion, logging a limited practice Wednesday, followed by full practices Thursday and Friday. He isn't off to a great start this season, but he'll be out there Sunday against the Rams.

Ed Stinson
Stinson (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Patriots, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Stinson was plagued by injuries to his calf, groin, and oblique throughout August, yet he was absent from Week 1 injury reports. With plenty of depth along the defensive front, he may not be needed often in 2016.

Hakeem Valles
No Updates
Jared Veldheer
The Cardinals will have both Larry Fitzgerald and Tyrann Mathieu Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Both players came into the game listed as probable, and were always expected to play. Fitzgerald is battling a knee injury. Mathieu has a thumb issue.

The team will also have Lorenzo Alexander, Calais Campbell, Paul Fanaika, Larry Foote, Jared Veldheer and Kerwynn Williams for the contest. All six players were listed as probable.

The team's only questionable player, Jaron Brown, is also active. He's dealing with a toe injury.

Jermaine Gresham
Gresham hauled in one of two targets for 10 yards during Sunday's preseason defeat at Houston.

After missing much of training camp due to discomfort in both his hamstring and back, Gresham has taken the field in the Cardinals' last two exhibitions. His standing behind Darren Fells remains clear, though, as all three preseason targets have arrived via backup Drew Stanton's right arm. The days of an intriguing Gresham are in the rearview mirror, especially after surgery in March of 2015 to repair a herniated disk.

Givens Price
No Updates
Ifeanyi Momah
Momah (torn meniscus) didn't miss a single practice during Arizona's offseason program, ArizonaSports.com reports.

Momah suffered the knee injury on the final day of the 2015 preseason, but he now appears healthy and should be full-go for the start of training camp. A converted wideout, Momah is a 6-7, 255-pound specimen with soft hands. However, he's yet to log a snap in the NFL, and could be hard-pressed to realize his potential buried under Darren Fells, Jermaine Gresham, and Troy Niklas on the tight end depth chart, not to mention a slew of talented wide receivers he'd have to compete with for targets should he earn playing time.

John Brown
Brown registered six catches (on 11 targets) for 70 yards during Sunday's loss in Buffalo.

Brown entered the season on the heels of a concussion that dominated his well-being throughout August. Predictably, he notched only one reception apiece in Weeks 1 and 2, despite Carson Palmer looking his way seven times. With the Cardinals facing an imposing deficit on the road Sunday, Palmer was forced to compile a season-high 50 passes, and Brown proceeded to produce season-best marks across the board. Fellow wideout Michael Floyd emerged from the contest with a concussion of his own, which could result in Brown receiving a similar volume to Week 3 this coming Sunday versus the Rams.

Chris Johnson
Johnson recorded team highs with 16 carries for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 40-7 demolition of the Buccaneers.

Johnson garnered a career-low two snaps in the regular season opener, after which head coach Bruce Arians regretted not using the veteran back more often. Indeed, Johnson received a sizable bump in usage Sunday, picking up 21 of the Cardinals' 66 offensive snaps, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. With the hosts safely in front, 33-7, after three quarters, starting RB David Johnson took a seat, thereby allowing the veteran Johnson to handle the rock the rest of the way, which involved a three-yard touchdown to push the score to its final tally.

Jaron Brown
Brown (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Brown made a brief appearance on the injury report this week but rid himself of an injury designation in advance of the Cardinals' Week 2 tilt. With JJ Nelson (shoulder) on the pine, Brown will be the sole available reserve wideout.

Alex Okafor
Okafor has opted to avoid surgery and play with a torn biceps, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Okafor sustained the injury in Tuesday's practice, the second such torn biceps in his three-year career. In 2013, surgery was ordered up for the then rookie, but examinations may have revealed that the tear was less severe than three seasons ago. The pass rusher has totaled 10 sacks the past two campaigns, while logging 66 and 58.5 percent of the defensive snaps, but the addition of Chandler Jones along with the injury could very well result in a scaled-back role.

Robert Nkemdiche
Nkemdiche (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

Nkemdiche's full workload at practice would indicate that his ankle injury is largely healed at this point, even though it caused him to miss Week 3's tilt against the Bills. All signs point to him being able to go Sunday against the Rams.

Josh Mauro
The Cardinals have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 15 matchup with the Rams: safety Tyrann Mathieu (thumb), guards Paul Fanaika (ankle) and Anthony Steen, defensive ends Josh Mauro and Kareem Martin, defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu and linebacker Kenny Demens.

Mathieu and Fanaika had been previously ruled out, while the team's other players on the final injury report are all active.

Troy Niklas
The Cardinals placed Niklas (wrist) on injured reserve Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

Each team is able to activate one player from injured reserve under new league rules, so Niklas could make a return as early as late November. However, he wasn't making inroads on starting tight end Darren Fells and recorded precisely no yards on his sole catch this season. In a corresponding move, Ifeanyi Momah was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
