Dawson (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against Oakland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Dawson has been dealing with the hip injury since Week 8, although he has recent. Kicker Matthew McCrane -- who the Cardinals at one point had on their practice squad -- was brought in for a workout, and it would be a worrying sign for Dawson if he were to be officially signed.
Dawson (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. The limited work was a positive step for Dawson, who has been nursing the hip issue since Week 8 and was held out of Wednesday's practice session because of it. The injury has yet to force an absence this season, and with the Cardinals having yet to add another kicker to the roster, the current expectation is that Dawson will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Dawson missed Wednesday's practice with a right hip injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Since picking up the issue while preparing for Week 8, Dawson has hit all three point-after tries and his sole field-goal attempt (a 31-yarder) across two games. Although he's proved his ability to play with a compromised hip, his production has been lacking (2.9 points per game) in support of the Cardinals' 31st-ranked scoring offense (13.8 points per game).
Dawson converted both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs. Dawson logged another accurate performance, and he has not missed a kick since Week 4. Despite his reliability, the 41-year-old is not receiving the volume necessary to put up fantasy points. Dawson will see a favorable matchup against the Raiders on Sunday and will attempt to bounce back.
Dawson converted his only field-goal and made his lone extra-point attempt during Sunday's 18-15 win over the 49ers. Dawson has now made four of six field-goal attempts in 2018, and remains perfect on extra point tries with 12 converted. Despite his accuracy, the 41-year-old remains off the fantasy radar due to low volume in Arizona's middling offense. He'll look to bounce back after a Week 9 bye.
