Bynes (undisclosed) made three solo tackles and recovered one fumble during Sunday's 27-3 preseason win over the Cowboys. Bynes shook off a mystery injury and looked comfortable in his new role as middle linebacker. He likely won't play in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Broncos, but starter snaps during the regular season should propel Bynes into IDP relevance.
Bynes (undisclosed) participated in Sunday's practice but is still considered day-to-day, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Bynes has been sidelined for nearly a week and a half with an undisclosed injury, and while he was able to return to the practice field Sunday, it looks like he's still not 100 percent. Expect Bynes to be closely monitored and eased back into his regular workload this week.
Bynes did not practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The reason for Bynes' absence has not yet been revealed. Perhaps there's a minor injury that's keeping him on the sidelines, but if the Auburn product misses a string of practices, there will be justified concern moving forward. Consider him day-to-day until more information is provided.
Coach Steve Wilks recently said Bynes will handle middle linebacker in the Cardinals' switch in defensive scheme from a 3-4 to a 4-3, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Bynes will line up between Will LB Deone Bucannon and Sam LB Haason Reddick, two of the Cardinals' last four first-round picks. A journeyman linebacker, Bynes previously earned a significant snap count in 2015 with the Lions, tallying 82 tackles on 78 percent of the defensive snaps. In the two outings (Weeks 12 and 13) in which he surpassed that usage with the Cards last season, he racked up 17 tackles, but Bucannon only logged five defensive snaps during that stretch. With Bucannon healthy, Bynes may struggle to post a considerable number of stops from game to game, but the prospect of a guaranteed gig still should be beneficial.
Bynes (ankle) is in line to re-sign with the Cardinals when free agency opens Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. With starters Karlos Dansby and Deone Bucannon set to hit free agency Wednesday, Bynes is needed as a possible replacement. In his seventh season, Bynes made 36 tackles, one sack and one interception while playing more than 20 defensive snaps in a game just four times.
