Gresham (Achilles) doesn't carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Broncos, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. After logging two limited practices Monday and Tuesday, Gresham was able to get in a full practice Wednesday and eliminate any lingering concern about his Week 7 availability. Gresham has yet to catch more than one pass or record more than 30 receiving yards in an game this season, rendering him an unappealing fantasy option.
Gresham (Achilles) was a limited practice participant Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Among the Cardinals' options at tight end, Ricky Seals-Jones again dominated the targets -- six, which he turned into five catches for 69 yards -- and logged the most offensive snaps (39 of 58) during Sunday's 27-17 loss at Minnesota. Meanwhile, Gresham gathered in his only target for 26 yards, with his usage (30 on offense, or 51.7 percent) in line with his share from the previous two games. As such, he appears to have settled into a modest role as a blocker with the occasional look from rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. Expect much of the same Thursday versus the Broncos, assuming Gresham is active.
Gresham (Achilles) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Gresham is a candidate to land on the injury report all season after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 17 of last season. No matter, he'll be hard-pressed to pass Ricky Seals-Jones in the pecking order for targets among Cardinals tight ends.
Gresham (Achilles) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. After no practice Wednesday, Gresham's showing Thursday should allay concerns about the veteran tight end, who is a little more than nine months removed from tearing his Achilles. His workload the past three games has read 34, 55 and 54.9 percent of the offensive snaps, but targets have been few and far between. With a stat line of 2-20-0 on three targets, Gresham is clearly taking a back seat to Ricky Seals-Jones (10-123-1 on 25 targets).
Gresham (Achilles) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. By concluding the week with a full practice session, Gresham will avoid a questionable tag heading into Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. Gresham essentially split the tight-end work with Ricky Seals-Jones in the Week 4 loss to the Seahawks, with the former logging 33 offensive snaps to the latter's 39. It's possible that Gresham takes on a heavier snap count as he becomes further removed from the Achilles injury, but Seals-Jones would likely still offer the higher pass-catching upside of the two.
