The Cardinals placed Fua (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.
One day removed from getting waived/injured by the Cardinals, Fua cleared waivers and reverted to IR. Because of recurring issues with his knee, there's no telling when he'll be able to take the field again. As evidence, head coach Bruce Arians told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, "if it's real long, it's probably going to be too long."
Fua reached an injury settlement with the Cardinals on Monday, Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports.
Fua missed the majority of the 2016 season due to a knee injury. He reaggravated the issue at the beginning of training camp, and was expected to miss much of the preseason. As a result, he and the Cardinals have reached an injury settlement in order for them to go their separate ways.
Fua (knee) could be out 2-to-4 weeks, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
What seems like a reaggravation of last season's injury could possibly keep Fua out for the rest of training camp. Fua is already going to be hard-pressed to find defensive snaps, and this won't help him prove himself. Expect him to continue to solely be a special teams asset when he returns.
Fua injured his knee at Monday's practice, Kyle Odegard of AZCardinals.com reports.
Fua was sent to injured reserve last season with a knee injury after just three games, and it appears that ailment could still be lingering. He recorded one tackle on special teams last season, which is where his main contributions are. Fua would need injuries to plague the linebacker depth chart in order to find any consistent defensive snaps, so for the time being, his little fantasy relevance will stem from covering punts and kickoffs.
Fua dealt with a knee injury during the early portion of the preseason, but may have suffered a setback resulting in his IR designation. The Cardinals signed Joplo Bartu to provide additional depth at inside linebacker with the open roster spot.
