  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Snags seven touches in Week 11

    Benjamin notched six carries for 15 yards, hauled in his only target for five yards and returned one kickoff for 19 yards during Sunday's 23-13 win in Seattle.

    In two-plus games subbing in for Chase Edmonds (ankle), Benjamin has hovered between 23 and 28 percent of the offensive plays, while starter James Conner has accounted for a whopping 76-81 percent. The result has been 21 carries for 76 yards, Sunday's five-yard catch and one rushing TD on Benjamin's ledger. With Edmonds sidelined, Conner has turned into a three-down back, and Benjamin has had little more than scraps on a weekly basis. Edmonds will miss the Cardinals' next game Sunday, Dec. 5 at Chicago due to the requirement that he must sit out at least three contests while on injured reserve, so Benjamin does have at least one more chance to be a regular part of the offense.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Ready to go for Week 11

    Benjamin (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Benjamin received the green light for the weekend after he turned in a full practice Friday following limited showings Wednesday and Thursday, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. He'll serve as the No. 2 option out of the backfield behind James Conner, who is set to make his second straight start with Chase Edmonds (ankle) on injured reserve.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Remains limited

    Benjamin (groin) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

    Benjamin has logged a pair of limited practices to begin the week, giving him a chance to suit up for the Cardinals' Week 11 matchup against Seattle. Assuming he can play, Benjamin should have the backup running back role to himself as Chase Edmonds (ankle) remains on injured reserve and Jonathan Ward (concussion) is also sidelined. Benjamin recorded six carries for 22 yards in Arizona's Week 11 loss to Carolina.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Limited by groin issue

    Benjamin was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    The hits keep coming for a Cardinals offense that has had numerous starters miss game action so far this season. In the backfield, Chase Edmonds is on injured reserve due to a high-ankle sprain, while Jonathan Ward hasn't practiced since sustaining a concussion Week 8 against the Packers. Benjamin has stepped in for Edmonds in both of Arizona's past two contests, working as a complement to top option James Conner and compiling 15 carries for 61 yards and one touchdown in the process. Assuming Benjamin gets past the current health concern, he'll back up Conner again Sunday in Seattle.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Notches six rushes Sunday

    Benjamin recorded six carries for 22 yards, returned two kickoffs for 55 yards and failed to haul in his only target during Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Panthers.

    The Cardinals are without Chase Edmonds for at least three games due to a high-ankle sprain suffered in Week 9, giving Benjamin his first chance as a pro to get regular reps with the offense. While he handled a modest 28 percent share of the offensive snaps -- his second consecutive contest of at least 25 percent -- it didn't translate into much production. Meanwhile, James Conner paced the backfield with 81 percent of offensive plays and 13 touches for 64 total yards and one TD. In a backfield that has regularly been fruitful for two players this season, Benjamin should have opportunities to make an impact while Edmonds is sidelined, especially once Kyler Murray (ankle) is back in the fold.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: In line for larger role

    Benjamin is poised for a bigger role in the Cardinals backfield after Chase Edmonds was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    When Edmonds made an early departure Sunday in San Francisco, James Conner took on the lion's share of the running back reps, turning 21 carries into 96 yards and two touchdowns and gathering in all five of his targets for 77 yards and another score. Meanwhile, Benjamin stepped in as the No. 2 RB en route to nine carries for 39 yards and one TD. On the aforementioned score, he trucked a 49ers defender on his 21-yard scamper to the end zone. It should be noted the 2020 seventh-round pick only had four offensive snaps and two rushes in two career appearances prior to Week 9, but the Cardinals haven't been shy about keeping two backs involved each week, meaning Benjamin should have some type of role behind Conner during Edmonds' likely multi-week absence.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Scores first career NFL TD

    Benjamin carried the ball nine times for 39 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-17 win over the 49ers.

    Chase Edmonds (ankle) left the game early, and while James Conner dominated the backfield workload most of the afternoon, Benjamin got an opportunity to see the first significant action of his career in the second half and turned it into his first career TD. The 2020 seventh-round pick will need Edmonds to remain sidelined if he's going to get another such opportunity in Week 10 against the Panthers, however.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Won't face Packers

    Benjamin (coach's decision) is inactive Thursday against the Packers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Benjamin has suited up for two games this season but has regularly been a healthy scratch. Chase Edmonds and James Conner should see the majority of the work out of the backfield once again.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Inactive once again

    Benjamin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Browns, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Benjamin was active for the first time in his career in Week 5. However, he did not log an offensive snap and will be inactive once again with Chase Edmonds (shoulder) ready to go.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Active for first time

    Benjamin (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the 49ers.

    For the first time in his career, Benjamin is active for an NFL game after the Cardinals made him a seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft. He may just be an emergency option, though, after lead running back Chase Edmonds dealt with a hamstring injury of his own during Week 5 prep. If the status quo holds, Edmonds and James Conner will be the primary RBs for Arizona, while Jonathan Ward serves on special teams and Benjamin waits for his first snap as a pro.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Nursing injury in Week 5

    Benjamin is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers due to a hamstring injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Benjamin has either been a healthy inactive or has dressed without playing in each of the Cardinals' 20 regular-season games since he was drafted in the seventh round in 2020, but for the first time in his career, he could be at risk of missing a contest for an injury-related reason. He was a limited participant throughout the week due to the hamstring issue.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Out Week 4

    Benjamin (hamstring) will not play in the Cardinals' Week 4 matchup with the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Benjamin has yet to make his season debut, as he has been a healthy scratch through the first three weeks of the season. He will now miss his fourth straight game, but this time with a hamstring issue. When healthy, he will continue to wait for an opportunity to provide depth at running back.

  • Cardinals' Eno Benjamin: Not suiting up Sunday

    Benjamin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Vikings, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    As he was as a rookie in 2020 and in Week 1 last Sunday, Benjamin is a healthy scratch for Arizona. The 2020 seventh-round pick thus will be in street clothes while Chase Edmonds and James Conner split work out of the backfield, and Jonathan Ward handles his customary role on special teams.
