The Cardinals will wait and see how Mauro progresses during the week of practice, but at this juncture, it doesn't sound as though the team is optimistic about the lineman's chances of playing Week 12 against the Jaguars. With only 19 tackles and one sack through 10 games on the season, Mauro's potential absence would have more impact in real-life terms than in IDP leagues.
Mauro's calf injury limited his activity in the Cardinals' first two practices of the week, but he was upgraded to a full participant Friday to clear up any concern about a potential Week 5 absence. Mauro should be in line to start at defensive tackle, but with five tackles and one sack through four games this season, there's not much IDP utility to mine here.
Mauro was slated to be a restricted-free-agent this offseason but inked a new deal keeping him in desert through at least the 2018 season. In 15 games this season, the defensive tackle recorded a career-best 42 tackles and 13 tackles for a loss. At 25 years old, Mauro will head into next season as the likely right defensive end starter.
