  • Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Joins Cardinals' 53-man roster

    The Cardinals signed Kennard to their active roster Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Kennard's promotion isn't much of a surprise considering he was elevated to Arizona's active roster prior to both of the team's first two contests. Through Week 2, the 31-year-old linebacker has registered two total tackles, with one in each game thus far. Expect Kennard to continue operating as a rotational piece for the Cardinals defense when the team hosts the Rams on Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Will play in Week 3

  • Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Considered questionable

    The Cardinals have handed Kennard (calf) a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Panthers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Kennard's questionable status is seemingly optimistic as he was unable to practice all week. Still, the team will wait to see how he is feeling closer to kickoff before making a final decision. Look for some combination of Haason Reddick and Kylie Fitts to see increased reps at outside linebacker if Kennard is ultimately unable to go.

In Kennard's absence, Christian Jones and Jonathan Freeny figure to get extended reps with the first-team defense.
