Byrd hauled in one of two targets for four yards during Sunday's 27-21 road win against the Giants. After missing two games with a hamstring injury, Byrd returned Week 6 with 60 yards on a pair of catches while playing 22 percent of the offensive snaps. The latter number jumped to 80 percent Sunday, but the Cardinals' passing offense as a whole was futile, managing just 104 yards as coach Kliff Kingsbury rode backup running back Chase Edmonds to the tune of 150 yards from scrimmage and three rushing touchdowns on 29 touches. The development didn't allow any of the team's skill-position players to rack up more than Pharoh Cooper's 29 receiving yards, which Byrd and company will attempt to turn around Sunday in New Orleans.
Byrd reeled in both of his targets for 60 yards during Sunday's 34-33 win against the Falcons. Healthy enough to suit up for the first time since Week 3, Byrd nonetheless was limited to 15 of the 69 snaps on offense, working behind fellow outside receivers KeeSean Johnson (56) and Trent Sherfield (36). Byrd made good use of those minimal reps, leading the trio in receiving yards, 60-52. Look for Byrd to ramp up his workload as he attempts to get back to the roughly 92 percent of the offensive plays that he received Weeks 1 through 3.
Byrd (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the Falcons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. A hamstring injury sidelined Byrd for two games, but he'll resume his standing as the Cardinals' top outside threat at wide receiver. With Byrd back in action, KeeSean Johnson will be the other outside receiver in four-wide sets, likely pushing Trent Sherfield back to a special-teams role.
Byrd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. A limited practice participant throughout the week, Byrd appears truly questionable for Sunday, as does fellow wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle). We may not have word on a decision until the Cardinals release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before the team's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
Byrd (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. After missing two games with a hamstring injury, Byrd returned to the practice field for the first time in nearly three weeks. It's a decent enough sign that he's trending toward active status Sunday versus the Falcons, but Friday's practice report will have the final word.
