Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Tallies three touchdowns in 2021
Wesley hauled in 19 of 32 targets for 208 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games during the 2021 season.
The Ravens signed Wesley as an undrafted free agent in May 2019, but he didn't log his first NFL action until Week 3 of this past campaign as a member of the Cardinals. His first catch as a pro came in Week 8, and the 6-foot-4 wide receiver eventually became a regular in Arizona's offense when DeAndre Hopkins missed the majority of the second half of the season due to hamstring and knee injuries. In particular, Wesley was targeted six times in the red zone from Weeks 15-17, when he tallied his trio of scores. An exclusive rights free agent this offseason, he's limited to signing the contract tendered to him by the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Sees four targets Sunday
Wesley gathered in two of four targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 38-30 loss to the Seahawks.
The bulk of Wesley's production this season has occurred with DeAndre Hopkins (knee) on the sideline. Between Weeks 9 and 11 and since Hopkins was placed on IR after Week 14, Wesley played between 59 and 85 percent of offensive snaps in each of those seven games en route to a 18-201-3 line on 29 targets. Hopkins isn't expected to be ready to return until the NFC Championship Game at the earliest, so Wesley should continue to get regular looks from Kyler Murray in Monday's wild-card game against the Rams....

Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Two TDs in win
Wesley caught four of five targets for 30 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Cowboys.
He was Kyler Murray's favorite red-zone option on the afternoon, hauling in a one-yard TD in the second quarter and a 19-yard strike in the third. Wesley has notched his first three NFL touchdowns in the last two games, and he'll look to pad that total further in Week 18 against the Seahawks.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Ready for bigger role
Wesley will take on a larger role in the Arizona offense with DeAndre Hopkins undergoing knee surgery, Darren Urban of azcardinals.com reports.
Wesley previously played 76-77 percent of snaps in three straight games (Weeks 9-11) when Hopkins missed time with a hamstring injury, catching seven of eight targets for 106 yards in that stretch. He'll likely continue to be targeted at a low rate on a per-snap/per-route basis, but Wesley does have a nice opportunity to pile up snaps and make an impression down the stretch.... See More ...

Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Tallies four receptions Sunday
Wesley recorded four catches (on four targets) for 44 yards during Sunday's 23-13 victory at Seattle.
The Cardinals have been without top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) for most of the past four games, and Wesley has profited as a result, earning at least 53 percent of the offensive snaps on each occasion. Wesley's production has been sporadic during that stretch, with outings of 62, 44, seven and no receiving yards. Overall, though, he's been efficient with his reps, hauling in eight of 11 targets (72.7 percent) and averaging 10.3 YPT. Arizona is on bye Week 12, so if Hopkins is back in Week 13 in Chicago, Wesley would be on the outside looking in again in a stacked receiving corps that also includes A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Surprisingly productive Sunday
Wesley caught all three of his targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 31-17 win over the 49ers.
One game after catching his first career pass in the NFL, Wesley made a much bigger splash as he took advantage of the snaps available while DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) and A.J. Green (COVID-19) were sidelined. Wesley also nearly scored a touchdown but was ruled out just shy of the goal line late in the first quarter after hauling in a pass from Christian Kirk. He's been hanging around on practice squads or injured reserve since going undrafted out of Texas Tech in 2019, but Wesley's recent performances may be earning him a regular spot on the Arizona roster....

Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Activated off COVID-19 list
The Cardinals activated Wesley off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wesley missed the first two weeks of the season after testing positive for the virus ahead of the season opener. The 23-year-old spent the 2020 campaign on the Ravens' injured reserve due to a shoulder injury and still was working his way back to full strength during training camp. It's unclear what type of role he may play for Arizona's offense this season.... See More ... See Less

The Cardinals have placed Wesley on the reserve/COVID-19 list following a positive test, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports.
Wesley will now miss the team's season opener against the Titans as a result of his positive test. His status for Week 2 is certainly up in the air as well. When healthy, he projects primarily as a special-teams contributor.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Participates in individual drills
Wesley (shoulder) participated in individual drills during Sunday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wesley spent the 2020 campaign on the Ravens' injured reserve due to a shoulder injury but signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals in May. He didn't appear in Friday's preseason opener against Dallas but returned to the practice field in a limited capacity two days later. The 23-year-old is expected to slowly ease back into action, so it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Friday's exhibition game against Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Antoine Wesley: Links up with Cardinals
Wesley (shoulder) signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wesley hasn't recorded a snap in the NFL during his first two seasons because of injuries. Health is the main concern for the 23-year-old; however, if he can stay on the field, he has a chance to rekindle his collegiate success at Texas Tech, where he totaled 88 receptions, 1,410 yards and nine touchdowns under current Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury....

The Ravens sent Wesley (shoulder) to injured reserve Sunday, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports.
