  • Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Tweaks knee Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bethea left Sunday's game against the Redskins with a knee injury and is questionable to return, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Bethea battled a knee injury ahead of Sunday's game, and this is likely a setback. The veteran safety is listed as the No. 3 for Arizona, but he still plays near full snap counts. Expect Harlan Miller to increase his defensive workload if Bethea can't return.

  • Bethea (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports. Per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site, head coach Bruce Arians said Bethea and Budda Baker (thigh), who were both held out Wednesday, should practice in some capacity Thursday. That should clear up most of the concern about either safety's availability for Sunday's game against the Redskins, with both set to see ample snaps in the contest. Since supplying a season-high 11 tackles in a Week 7 win over the Rams, Bethea's production has dropped off considerably. He hasn't mustered more than five tackles or generated a turnover in any of the Cardinals' past six contests.

  • 49ers' Antoine Bethea: Finishes above century mark
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bethea finished the 2016 campaign with 110 tackles (95 solo) and an interception. Bethea had a renaissance year for the 49ers, finishing above 100 tackles for the first time since 2013. Never known for his ball-hawking abilities, the veteran safety brings value through his ability to rack up tackles. The increased tackle total can be attributed to good health (started all 16 games) and opposing teams running the ball heavily against San Francisco. Barring major offseason changes, the 49ers are likely to face a barrage of runs again next season, making Bethea a quality IDP target.

  • Bethea logged 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. With the 49ers being decimated by injuries, Bethea actually logged a handful of snaps at inside linebacker Sunday. While the brief position change may have helped his tackle totals, the veteran safety was doing enough on his own to put up solid IDP totals in 2016. With two games left on the schedule, Bethea needs just four tackles to reach the century mark for the first time in a 49ers' uniform.
