Gresham caught his only target for two yards during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.
Gresham didn't have much of a chance to produce Week 12, with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen having totaled just over 100 passing yards on the day, but it's not as if his quiet performance was an anomaly. The veteran tight end has caught one or less passes in eight of nine starts this season. Gresham will remain firmly behind Ricky Seals-Jones heading into Sunday's tilt against the Packers.
Gresham caught one of his two targets for an eight-yard gain during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Oakland.
It was the seventh time in eight games this season that Gresham came away with one or no catches. Ricky Seals-Jones is the primary weapon at tight end in Arizona and even he has been inconsistent in his performances. Sunday brings a Chargers defense that has been on the rise in recent weeks.
Gresham played 29 (on 73) offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-14 defeat in Kansas City.
The breakdown of reps between Gresham and Ricky Seals-Jones depends on the week. On this occasion, the latter led the way with 46 snaps on offense, which he used to produce five catches (on nine targets) for 51 yards. Meanwhile, Gresham went without a target for the third time in seven games this season. He also is averaging just one target per contest in 2018, making him a fantasy nonentity in his ninth NFL campaign.
Despite elevating to full participation at Friday's practice, Gresham was listed as questionable for this game due to a back injury. By avoiding the inactive list Week 10, the 30-year-old will be available to the Cardinals offense, primarily as a blocker due to his meager mark of 1.2 targets per game this season.
Gresham bumped up to full participation at Friday's practice, which is generally the basis for getting clearance to play. That said, the veteran tight end enters the weekend with a designation. If he's active Sunday, as he has been in each of the Cardinals' previous six games, Gresham will be little more than a fringe TE option due to his mark of 1.2 targets per outing.
