Top Jonathan Ward News

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Signs tender Monday

    Ward signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Ward's work at running back has been limited during his first two seasons in the NFL -- nine carries for 33 yards and three catches for 34 yards -- but that could change in 2022 with the departure of Chase Edmonds. Currently, the Cardinals have James Conner, Eno Benjamin and Jaylen Samuels under contract, but they've been rumored to be interested in Darrel Williams and could possibly use the draft to bolster their backfield depth as well.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Contract tender extended

    The Cardinals have extended a one-year contract tender to Ward.

    With that, Ward, who was poised to become an exclusive rights free agent, is now on track to remain a depth piece in the team's 2022 backfield. Who the 24-year-old will be working behind, however, remains to be seen, with both James Conner and Chase Edmonds both pending unrestricted free agents.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Out Monday

    Ward (knee) is inactive Monday against the Rams. Darren Urban of the Cardinals official site reports.

    Ward was able to log a limited practice Saturday after sitting out Thursday and Friday, but he's still unable to suit up. With James Conner (ribs) and Chase Edmonds (ribs/toe) both active and Eno Benjamin also available, Ward's absence shouldn't have an impact on the Cardinals offense.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Listed as questionable

    Ward (knee) is questionable for Monday's wild-card matchup against the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward was held out of practice Thursday and Friday, but he returned in a limited capacity Saturday. Chase Edmonds (ribs/toe) isn't on the injury report for Monday's contest, so Ward is unlikely to see significant work against the Rams, even if James Conner (ribs) is held out.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Yet to practice this week

    Ward (knee) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Monday against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Ward was injured in Week 18 against the Seahawks and has yet to practice this week. With James Conner (ribs) and Chase Edmonds (ribs) also questionable, the Cardinals' backfield is banged up going into Monday's matchup with the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: DNP on Thursday

    Ward (knee) did not practice Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    The running back was unavailable for Thursday's practice after being considered day-to-day Wednesday. Ward is dealing with a knee issue and his status at Friday's practice will provide more clarity to his chances to play Monday against the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Considered day-to-day

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that Ward (knee) is considered day-to-day, Dana Scott of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Ward's status for the wild-card matchup with the Rams wouldn't mean much by itself, but it's big news given the Cardinals' two primary running backs -- James Conner (ribs/heel) and Chase Edmonds (ribs/toe) -- are both considered day-to-day as well. However, Kingsbury did add that all three will be tested during Thursday's practice, which should give a better indication of their statuses' for Monday.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Questionable to return

    Ward (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Ward was banged up in the second half of Sunday's matchup. Since James Conner (ribs) is also questionable to return, Eno Benjamin should see an uptick in usage out of the backfield.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Will play Monday

    Ward was cleared of all injury designations Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Ward originally suffered a concussion Nov. 19 against the Seahawks, then was placed on the COVID list on Nov. 30 while still recovering from the concussion. He cleared COVID protocols Thursday and returned to both the active roster and practice field. After getting in a full practice Saturday, Ward will suit up Monday against the Rams. He should file in behind James Conner and Eno Benjamin on the running back positional depth chart.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Back from COVID list

    Ward (concussion) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Ward landed on the COVID list in late November but has now cleared the health and safety protocols. He hasn't seen the field since Week 8 after suffering a concussion but should be available for Arizona this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Lands on COVID list

    The Cardinals have placed Ward (concussion) on their reserve/COVID-19 list, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Ward has been sidelined since sustaining a concussion in Week 8. The Cardinals are coming off a bye week, and it is unclear if he was nearing a potential return on that front. Regardless, he will now be sidelined at least until he can clear the league's COVID protocols. As a result, James Conner and Eno Benjamin remain the team's only healthy backs.
