Position Listing
Lyle Sendlein
The Cardinals signed free agent center Lyle Sendlein on Friday, per ESPN

Sendlein played for the Cardinals for the last eight years, but he was released in March. 

Coach Bruce Arians said that Sendlein won't compete for the starting job. "It's just another guy in competition," he said. "He's coming in to compete for the job. We'll always look for the best available guys to add to the group."

Kevin White
No Updates
Corey Peters
Cardinals defensive lineman Corey Peters suffered a torn left Achilles and will miss the 2015 season, coach Bruce Arians said Thursday.

Peters, who inked a three-year deal in the offseason, was slated to start at nose tackle. In his first five seasons -- all with the Falcons -- he totaled 146 tackles and 11 sacks.

Achilles - IR. Out for season

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
The Jets lost three players to concussions and three others to an assortment of injuries in Friday's preseason game against Atlanta, per ESPN.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, safety Durell Eskridge and running back Daryl Richardson all left with concussions.

Offensive tackle Ben Ijalana left the game with a knee injury. Shaq Evans sprained his back, and Sashaun Phillips hurt his ribs.

Shaquille Riddick
Cardinals draft pick Shaquille Riddick sat out Monday's practice with a sore hamstring. 

Riddick has missed at least one practice each of the last three weeks with the nagging injury, and coach Bruce Arians is losing patience. 

“You can’t make any progress sitting over there in the training room,” Arians said, per ESPN

Kevin Minter
Minter amassed a career-high 10 tackles during Sunday's win versus the Bengals.

Under the direction of defensive coordinator James Bettcher, the unit has mined its depth to ensure that the first two levels were fresh, save for its two inside linebackers: the do-it-all Deone Bucannon and Minter. A 2013 second-round pick, Minter bided his time before earning a regular role this season, accounting for 92 percent of the defensive snaps (612 of 667, to be exact). The workload has equated to the second-most tackles (61) on the Cardinals behind Bucannon's 71, but with nary a contribution otherwise (just a forced fumble), Minter must provide more outbursts like Sunday's to approach the outer tier of IDP contributors.

Zack Wagenmann
Foot - IR. Out for season
Carrington Byndom
A quartet of injured Panthers have landed on their inactive list for the Sunday game against the Browns. Among them are running back DeAngelo Williams (hand), cornerback Carrington Byndom (hamstring), linebacker A.J. Klein (knee) and guard Amini Silatolu (knee).

The healthy scratches are safety Robert Lester, defensive tackle Kyle Love and offensive tackle David Foucault.

Brandon Person
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians announced Monday safety Brandon Person will miss the 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL in the preseason opener against the Chiefs.
Knee - IR. Out for season
Deone Bucannon
Bucannon (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Added to the injury report Thursday with a concussion, Bucannon emerged from the protocol just one day later, though head coach Bruce Arians said that he'd be careful with the middle linebacker. While his snap count could be limited, Bucannon will look to add to his team-leading 71 tackles.

Robert Nelson
The Browns listed cornerback Joe Haden (shoulder) and linebacker Karlos Dansby (knee) as questionable for Sunday’s game at Carolina. Haden was able to practice Friday on a limited basis.

Also listed as questionable are Gary Barnidge (ribs), Marlon Moore (knee), Robert Nelson (hamstring) and Jabaal Sheard (foot).

The Browns ruled K’Waun Williams (hamstring) and Tashaun Gipson (knee) as out. Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins (illness) is the only player listed as probable.

The Browns are 3 ½ point underdogs to the Panthers.

Ted Larsen
Cardinals offensive lineman Mike Iupati (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 20, Iupati will wait another week to make his Cardinals debut. In his place, Ted Larsen will again start at left guard.

Tony Jefferson
Jefferson posted 12 tackles (eight solo), two forced fumbles, and one pass defended in Sunday's domination of the Lions.

Jefferson was involved in two of the Lions' four first-half turnovers, the last of which resulted in the Cardinals' fourth touchdown of the second quarter. He was otherwise around the ball frequently, as Detroit's one-dimensional offense racked up 70 pass attempts, handing a number of tackle opportunities to the Cards' secondary. Still, he logged 72 of 95 defensive snaps (76 percent), which was a slight boost in his usage (64 percent) from the first four games of the season, meaning his output is likely dependent on the opponent on a weekly basis.

Stepfan Taylor
Taylor is expected to have an expanded role in the Cardinals' offense due to injuries to fellow running backs Chris Johnson (knee) and Andre Ellington (toe), the team's official site reports.

David Johnson has already been anointed the top RB, if the veteran Johnson and Ellington require time to recover, but that duo's breakdown of reps implies that another player will get in on the action. As the only option remaining on the 53-man roster Sunday at San Francisco, Taylor picked up seven snaps after the third-quarter departures of Chris Johnson and Ellington, taking his only carry for two yards. In parts of the seasons with the Cardinals, Taylor has displayed ability as both a runner and pass-catcher, averaging 3.2 YPC and hauling in 19 of 25 targets across 41 games. His eventual workload this Sunday in St. Louis will be contingent upon the recoveries of the veteran backs typically in front of him.

Gerald Christian
The Cardinals announced on Monday that they have signed third-round draft pick David Johnson and seventh-round selection Gerald Christian .

Johnson was able to gain recognition for his on-field talents despite playing college football at Northern Iowa. He was a first-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference in 2013 and 2014 while running for back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. 

Christian was a third-team all-ACC tight end at Louisvile in 2014. 

Knee - IR. Out for season
Red Bryant
Defensive tackle Red Bryant was cut by the Jaguars on Thursday, according to the Florida Times-Union. He was due a $500,000 roster bonus on Sunday had the team retained him. The Jaguars cleared up $4.5 million in cap space with the move.

Bryant started all 16 games last season amassing 22 total tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. The 30-year-old was expendable after the Jaguars signed Jared Odrick, formerly of the Dolphins, in free agency.

Chandler Catanzaro
Catanzaro converted both field goals and 1-of-2 extra points during Sunday's win in San Francisco.

Facing a fortified 49ers front, the Cardinals didn't offer Catanzaro many opportunities to get on the score board, but he emerged from the first half with field goals of 26 and 41 yards, extending his streak with multiple field goals to six games. Thereafter, though, he was handed two point-after attempts, one of which he missed with 2:28 remaining to keep the score at 19-13. With just seven points on Sunday's ledger, he failed to rack up double-digit points for the fourth consecutive contest, yet he ranks fourth among the NFL's kickers in scoring with 99 points.

Brittan Golden
The Cardinals have deemed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Panthers: Drew Stanton, Brittan Golden , Chris Clemons , Jonathan Cooper, Alameda Ta'amu, Anthony Steen , and Kareem Martin.

Cooper has missed the past two games for Arizona with a wrist injury.

The Cardinals are 5 1/2-point underdogs for Saturday's game.

Larry Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald (ankle) caught 10 of 14 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 19-13 win at San Francisco.

The entire Cardinals' offense struggled against an inspired 49ers' defense, as Carson Palmer failed to throw a touchdown pass in a game for the first time this season. Fitzgerald has been remarkably consistent this season, posting just one dud; a three-catch effort against Baltimore in Week 7. Otherwise, he's topped 75 yards or scored a touchdown, until Sunday, although PPR owners can't really complain about 10 receptions. With Palmer playing better than ever this year, there is no reason to think Fitzgerald will slow down. Next up for the veteran wideout and the Cardinals will be a road game against St. Louis.

Justin Bethel
Bethel (foot) is listed as active Sunday at Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The opportunity existed for Bethel to start at cornerback this week, but Jerraud Powers brushed off his Grade 2 hamstring strain in order to cover his typical starting spot opposite Patrick Peterson. While Bethel could assume a greater role on defense, especially if Powers requires the occasional breather, special teams will likely account for the bulk of his snaps yet again.

Frostee Rucker
The Cardinals have signed veteran defensive lineman Frostee Rucker to a one-year extension, per NFL.com Insider Ian Rapoport.

Rucker, who is entering his third season with Arizona, has played in all but one game over the last four years. He started eight last season and contributed a career-high five sacks.

Ankle - Missed Week 12 at San Francisco
Tyrann Mathieu
Mathieu racked up 13 tackles (11 solo) and one interception during Sunday's win in San Francisco.

The career-high tackle total pushes Mathieu firmly into second on the Cardinals with 70 (63 solo), which he's supplemented with four interceptions (one for a touchdown), one forced fumble, and one sack this season. Playing a roving free safety role in a secondary that trots out five or six defensive backs on most snaps, he's put together a case for Defensive Player of the Year with five games remaining.

Markus Golden
Golden notched three solo tackles, including a strip sack, during Sunday's victory versus the Bengals.

In an attempt to keep his pass rushers fresh, defensive coordinator James Bettcher has capped their weekly reps, and Golden hasn't been an exception. The first full sack of the rookie's career occurred as the Bengals were gaining momentum in the fourth quarter, resulting in a chip-shot, 24-yard field goal for Chandler Catanzaro. That play aside, Golden has accrued only one other sack among 19 tackles (13 solo), as he's managed to pick up just over 50 percent (333 of 665) of the Cardinals' defensive snaps in 2015.

John Fullington
A left knee injury sustained during practice Wednesday has caused guard John Fullington to lose his job with the Cardinals. He has been waived/injured.

Fullington was signed to the team's practice squad last December.

Patrick Peterson
Peterson (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest at San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson fit in just one limited practice this week, though head coach Bruce Arians relayed after Friday's practice that the cornerback was expected to play Sunday. Indeed, Peterson is suiting up, but with an unknown snap count, he may yield snaps at cornerback to Justin Bethel.

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. 

J.J. Nelson
Nelson notched two catches (on five targets) for 53 yards during Sunday's victory in San Francisco.

One week removed from his breakout performance, Nelson predictably returned to a fringe receiving option with Michael Floyd back in action (hamstring), but it was telling that the rookie wasn't on the Cardinals' inactive list. Indeed, Nelson was targeted by Carson Palmer before Floyd, yet his snaps were sporadic the rest of the afternoon, as he handled 14 of the 80 offensive snaps, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. While Floyd (two targets) will take on additional volume as he grows healthier, Palmer and head coach Bruce Arians appear to have noticed that Nelson is an asset to the passing attack, with 11 targets in the past two contests.

Carson Palmer
Palmer completed 24 of 40 passes for 271 yards with no touchdowns in Sunday's 19-13 win at San Francisco. His eight-yard touchdown run at the 2:28 mark of the fourth quarter broke a 13-13 tie.

Palmer had been on fire as of late, throwing for over 300 yards in his previous three games, with a 11:4 TD:INT ratio during that span, but surprisingly struggled Sunday in a favorable matchup. In fact, it was the first time all season that Palmer failed to throw at least one touchdown pass. Even with Sunday's fantasy dud, he's just five touchdowns away from reaching his previous season high of 32 passing scores (set back in 2005 while with Cincinnati), and he'll attempt to get closer to that mark in St. Louis next week.

Damond Powell
The Cardinals have placed wide receiver Damond Powell on the waivers/Non-Football Injury (NFI) list, according to Fox Sports 910.

Powell, who played at Iowa, was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent.

Face - NFI. Out indefinitely
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.

Cory Redding
The Cardinals announced that they've signed defensive end Cory Redding to a two-year contract on Wednesday. 

Redding, 34, spent the past three seasons with the Colts and tallied 3 1/2 sacks in 2014. Redding started his career in Detroit after being selected in the third round of the 2003 draft. He spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons with the Ravens. 

Ankle - Missed Week 12 at San Francisco
Kareem Martin
What was rumored is now official. The Cardinals are moving Kareem Martin from defensive end to outside linebacker despite his 6-foot-6, 270-pound frame, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Pat Kirwan.

Martin started two of the 11 games in which he played last season. He contributed eight tackles and one sack.

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.
Jonathan Cooper
Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said guard Jonathan Cooper will move from left guard to right guard, per ESPN.

"It’s no reflection on Coop in terms of disappointment," Keim told reporters at the NFL meetings on Monday.

The Cardinals recently signed former 49ers guard Mike Iupati in free agency, thus moving Cooper to the right side.

Cooper, 25, was a first-round selection by the team in 2014. He started two of the 10 games that he played in last season.

Kenny Demens
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.

Brandon Bostick
The Vikings have claimed former Packers tight end Brandon Bostick, the team announced on Wednesday.

The 6-foor-3, 250-pound tight end was waived by Green Bay on Monday, about a month after his mistake on an onside kick allowed the Seahawks to come back and win the NFC Championship Game. Bostick spent two seasons with the Packers and registered nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. With the addition of Bostick, the Vikings now have five tight ends on the active roster (Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, Chase Ford, Ryan Otten).

Darren Fells
Fells wasn't targeted Sunday at San Francisco, while earning 29 of the Cardinals' 80 offensive snaps, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Fells has been usurped by Jermaine Gresham in the TE pecking order in Arizona following a sprained shoulder suffered in Week 6. Upon returning in Week 10, Fells has matched Gresham's stat line over the last three outings, totaling four catches for 39 yards and one touchdown on six targets (versus three receptions for 35 yards and one touchdown on six targets). However, Gresham has outpaced him in terms of offensive snaps, garnering 181 of 229 during that span, while Fells has been contained to just 107. Considering the middling usage and production, Fells cannot be trusted for fantasy purposes.

Drew Stanton
Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton said his knee is 100 percent recovered and he has no limitations, reports Fox Sports Arizona.

Stanton suffered a right knee injury toward the end of last season.

Andre Ellington
Coach Bruce Arians relayed Monday that Ellington is dealing with turf toe, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Meanwhile, fellow RB Chris Johnson is dealing with a knee contusion, with the status of duo for this Sunday's game against the Rams not yet solidified. Next up for the Cards' carries if they miss time are David Johnson, Stepfan Taylor and possibly Kerwynn Williams, who is currently on the team's practice squad.

Foot - Left Week 12 at San Francisco
Kerwynn Williams
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said Williams and David Johnson will need to step up, after Chris Johnson (knee) and Andre Ellington (ankle) suffered injuries during Sunday's win over the 49ers, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

Interestingly enough, there was no mention of Stepfan Taylor, who had one carry for two yards in Sunday's game. Williams is currently signed to the Arizona practice squad, but he may join the roster within the next few days. If Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington both miss time, Carson Palmer seemed to suggest that Williams may actually be ahead of Taylor, albeit for the backup role behind David Johnson.

David Johnson
Johnson is set for an expanded workload following Chris Johnson's diagnosis of a fractured tibia.

In the aftermath of Sunday's game at San Francisco, the Cardinals determined that the veteran Johnson suffered a knee contusion, but further evaluation revealed the extent of the issue. With an extended absence possible, he will be joined in the injury watch this week due to Andre Ellington's bout with turf toe. If Ellington requires time to recover as well, the next man up in the backfield is David Johnson, who currently leads all rookies with eight touchdowns on the season. Although the Northern Iowa product doesn't have much of a sample size, he's averaging nearly 4.0 YPC on 35 rushes and hauled in 19 of 29 targets for 241 yards, which is good for 12.7 yards per catch.

Drew Butler
The Cardinals placed punter Dave Zastudil (groin) on injured reserve and promoted punter Drew Butler from the practice squad. Arizona also re-signed linebacker Marcus Benard and added quarterback Dennis Dixon to the practice squad.
LaMarr Woodley
Woodley was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a chest injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Under general manager Steve Keim, the Cardinals have taken chances on veterans with team-friendly one-year contracts, producing resurgent seasons for Karlos Dansby and Antonio Cromartie in the past. Woodley was another player in that vein, but despite starting at weak-side linebacker, he only recorded 10 tackles and one sack on 42 percent of the defensive snaps. With his season over, Dwight Freeney and Markus Golden will pick up the slack on the outside.

Alani Fua
No Updates
Xavier Williams
No Updates
Matt Barkley
The Eagles traded quarterback Matt Barkley to the Cardinals for a conditional seventh-round pick, ESPN reports. Barkley has appeared in four games in his career and has four interceptions with no touchdowns.
Rashad Johnson
Johnson (ribs) is listed as active Sunday against the Bengals, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson built up to a full practice by week's end, erasing any doubt that he would play in Week 11. His ball-hawking ways have continued in 2015, as he's already corralled four interceptions in nine outings.

Calais Campbell
Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell was a one-man wrecking crew Sunday against the Rams, racking up 11 tackles (10 solo), three tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, and 0.5 sacks.

Campbell was everywhere in Week 4, but the Cardinals' defense itself was unable to force a turnover, after accumulating seven (all interceptions) over the course of the first three weeks of the season. Stuck in the 50-to-75 tackle territory in each of the past five campaigns, he currently has 25 to his credit, which is a career-best pace. On the other side of the coin, the half sack Sunday was his first in the category in 2015, so he has some work to do to uphold his standard (6-to-9 sacks in six consecutive seasons).

Michael Floyd
Floyd (hamstring) reeled in one of two targets for 14 yards during Sunday's victory at San Francisco.

When Floyd recorded a catch early in the first quarter, owners could have led themselves to believe that his hamstring injury wasn't an issue. However, he received just one target the rest of the way, while playing 51 of the Cardinals' 80 offensive snaps, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. Floyd's practice participation this week will shed light into his current level of health, but it wouldn't surprise if he requires a few weeks to reach 100 percent.

Ed Stinson
The Cardinals placed defensive end Ed Stinson (toe) on injured reserve and promoted wideout Brittan Golden from the practice squad, the team announced.
Groin - Missed Week 12 at San Francisco
Sean Weatherspoon
Cardinals linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is listed as inactive Sunday at Detroit.

Active in the first four games of the season, Weatherspoon earned only 39 total snaps in the first three, before residing on the sideline for the entirety of last Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Robert Hughes
Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor, Marion Grice and Robert Hughes could do little to nothing in Arizona's 27-16 loss to the Panthers Saturday. Arizona's running backs had 15 carries for 27 yards and one touchdown in defeat.

Grice had just one carry for one yard and a touchdown. It was initally called a fumble on the field, with the ball popping out as Grice stretched for the end zone. However, it was overturned and called a touchdown.

The Cardinals have been unable to get anything going on the ground the past few weeks, averaging 1.86 yards per carry in Arizona's last two outings.

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 tallied one reception (on three targets) for nine yards during Sunday's win at San Francisco.

Since Darren Fells returned from a two-game absence in Week 10, the Cardinals' offense has boasted a full complement of tight ends, but Gresham's snap count (181 of 229) versus Darren Fells' (107) during that span indicates that he's the clear-cut No. 1 option at the moment. Gresham's standing hasn't been reflected in the box score, though, as his stat line (three catches for 35 yards and one touchdown on six targets) has been replicated by Fells (four receptions for 39 yards and one touchdown on six targets) over the last three contests. In any case, potential owners should tread carefully due to the overall lack of output from either player.

Mike Leach
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.
Antoine McClain
The Bills trimmed their active roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Xavius Boyd, DT Landon Cohen, TE Dominique Jones, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, P Brian Moorman, QB Jordan Palmer, FB Evan Rodriguez, WR Naaman Roosevelt, C Jared Wheeler, QB Jeff Tuel, S Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, S Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and G Antoine McClain.
Dwight Freeney
Freeney (finger) is active for Sunday's game in Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Freeney will be employed as a situational pass rusher, which could yield additional fruit as he grows more accustomed to the schemes of defensive coordinator James Bettcher. In two games with the Cardinals, Freeney has racked up two quarterback hits and one sack among two tackles (one solo).

Ifeanyi Momah
Cardinals tight end Ifeanyi Momah , who earned one of the final spots on the team, tore his meniscus Wednesday and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve, per Fox Sports. 

Momah injured his knee during Tuesday's practice. He has been with the Eagles, Brows and Lions since coming out of Boston College, although he has not appeared in a game. 

Knee - IR. Out for season
John Brown
Brown grabbed five of seven targets for 99 yards in Sunday's 19-13 win at San Francisco.

Carson Palmer failed to throw a touchdown pass in a game for the first time this season, and the entire offense struggled in general Sunday, but Brown was still able to produce a strong game. His 11-yard catch in the final minute of the game, iced the win for the Cardinals. He has been dogged by his hamstring injury for over a month, but he might finally be healthy, seeing more than three targets in a game for the first time since Week 7. He also had a touchdown wiped out in the first half Sunday because he stepped out of bounds, and was the first player to touch the ball. The second-year wideout is capable of making huge plays in Arizona's high-flying offense, as was the case at Pittsburgh in Week 6, when he went exploded to catch 10 balls for 196 yards, so if he's close to 100 percent, it's safe to expect strong production from him down the stretch. Next week, he'll square off against a solid Rams' defense.

Jerraud Powers
Powers suffered a calf strain during Sunday's win in San Francisco, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Powers was in considerable pain after coming off the field Sunday, spurring head coach Bruce Arians to hope that the cornerback hadn't injured his Achilles. After an evaluation, though, Powers has been diagnosed with a strained calf and is considered day-to-day. Ultimately, his activity level in upcoming practices will forecast whether he'll suit up in Week 13 at St. Louis.

Chris Johnson
Johnson has been diagnosed with a fractured tibia in his left leg, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports.

Johnson was knocked out of Sunday's game in San Francisco, after his left knee has hit by an opposing player's helmet. The initial diagnosis of a bone bruise indicated a short absence was in store, but Glazer's bombshell says otherwise. The Cardinals will explore if there's a chance that he can return at some point, but the running back corps could be down to David Johnson and Stepfan Taylor in the short term due to Andre Ellington's bout with turf toe.

Knee - Left Week 12 at San Francisco
Jaron Brown
Brown made three receptions (on five targets) for 38 yards during Sunday's win in Seattle.

Brown was ready when called upon, as he entered following Michael Floyd's hamstring injury in the fourth quarter. With the Cardinals in need of a response after Seattle's defense set up two easy touchdowns, Brown recorded receptions of 10 and 20 yards on the team's first touchdown drive, during which he also broke up a likely interception by Richard Sherman. During Arizona's next possession, Brown made a crucial third-down grab in a drive that ended with Andre Ellington's game-sealing 48-yard touchdown run. If Floyd's injury lingers this week, Brown appears to be the next man up in the offense, which has equated to 14.2 YPC in brief appearances in 2015.

Cariel Brooks
Alex Okafor
Okafor (calf) is listed as active Sunday at Seattle, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Okafor's recovery from a strained right calf has encompassed three games and the Cardinals' bye week, but he'll again provide a boost to the front seven. In his career, he's displayed modest pass-rushing chops, notching 10 sacks in 19 career games.

Bradley Sowell
The Cardinals signed offensive tackle Bradley Sowell to a one-year deal, the organization announced on Thursday

Sowell, who will enter his fourth NFL season, signed with the Cardinals in 2013. Due to injuries on the offensive line, Sowell started 12 of Arizona's 16 regular-season games. He did not start a game in 2014. 

Bobby Massie
The NFL has suspended Cardinals offensive tackle Bobby Massie for two games after he was found to be in violation of the league's substance abuse policy, reports NFL.com.

Massie was facing a three-game suspension after being arrested while intoxicated and behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Jaxon Shipley
No Updates
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
Niklas tallied two touchdown receptions during Sunday's victory in Cleveland.

Niklas was the beneficiary of two red-zone looks, scoring from 11 yards and one yard, but Carson Palmer otherwise looked elsewhere among his 38 throws. Such is the life of a reserve tight end, though Niklas has picked up increased run during Darren Fells' (shoulder) two-game absence. Niklas' usage during that span has lagged behind current starter Jermaine Gresham -- 43 percent of the offensive snaps, versus 82 percent for the veteran -- a breakdown that likely won't last if Fells is able to return after the Cardinals' Week 9 bye.
