  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Won't go versus Atlanta

    Turner (hamstring) was deemed inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Turner will miss his first game of the season due to a hamstring injury. The 27-year-old linebacker has not played a defensive snap since the Week 4 loss to San Francisco, but he's been a core special-teamer for the Cardinals this season, tallying 17 tackles over nine games. Turner's next opportunity to suit up will come Sunday, Nov. 19 against Houston.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Totals team-high 10 tackles

    Turner recorded 10 tackles (four solo) in a Week 4 loss to San Francisco on Sunday. He added two yards on one carry on offense.

    With Josh Woods (ankle) missing a third straight game, Turner stepped into a starting role, logging a season-high 69 percent of Arizona's defensive snaps. He did well with the opportunity, pacing Arizona in stops and even picking up a first down with a two-yard rush on a fake punt in the second quarter. Turner could get another start Sunday in Cincinnati if Woods is forced to miss another contest.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Back in Arizona

    Arizona re-signed Turner to a one-year contract Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Turner rarely sees the field on defense but has been a core special teams player for Arizona over the past five seasons. He's expected to continue being a key part of the Cardinals' coverage units in 2023 while also serving as a reserve linebacker.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Active for Week 5

    Turner (ankle) was not listed on Arizona's injury report Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    After missing Weeks 3 and 4 due to an ankle injury, Turner was a full participant in Friday's practice and was not listed on the team's injury report.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Will sit again

    Turner (ankle) is out Sunday against the Panthers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Turner also sat out the team's Week 3 loss to the Rams with the injury. Mostly a depth piece at linebacker and a special-teams contributor, Turner's snaps will likely continue funneling to Ben Niemann.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Out for Week 3

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Turner (ankle) won't play Sunday versus the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Turner has operated mostly in a depth capacity up to this point in the season, logging the majority of his snaps on special teams. Ben Niemann should be in line to see increased work in Turner's absence.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Sticks with Arizona

    Turner agreed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Friday, Kevin Parrish of the Cardinals' official website reports.

    Turner made just five appearances in 2021 because of injuries and registered six total defensive snaps, though he continued to be a core piece for Arizona's special teams unit. After making the Cardinals' roster as an undrafted free agent in 2018, he's led the team in special-teams tackles twice -- 22 in 2018 and 15 in 2020. Turner figures to have a similar role again in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Activated from injured reserve

    The Cardinals returned Turner (shoulder) to the active roster ahead of Monday night's matchup against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Turner, who was designated to return from injured reserve in Week 17, had until this coming Wednesday to return to the active roster within the 21-day practice window. The linebacker saw very little action on defense (five total defensive snaps) before sustaining a shoulder injury in Week 5, but he played 20 or more special-teams snaps in the team's first four games and could play a prominent role in this phase going forward.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Lands on IR

    The Cardinals placed Turner (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports.

    Turner suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the 49ers, and he will be sidelined for at least three weeks with the move to injured reserve. The 25-year-old's absence shouldn't affect the defensive rotations, but he was a key piece for the majority of Arizona's special teams units.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Leaves with shoulder issue

    Turner is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers with a shoulder injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Turner's absence means the Cardinals lose some depth on special teams. It shouldn't affect the defense much as he's only played three snaps over the season's first four weeks.

  • Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Sticking in Arizona

    Turner signed his ERFA tender with the Cardinals on Monday, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Turner has been a standout contributor on special teams over the last three seasons, which once again could give him a path to a roster spot. Of course, as a player who only handled five defensive snaps in 2020, he's well off the radar in IDP formats.
