D.J. Foster: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Foster (quadriceps) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster has been hurt for nearly a month, but he'll return to practice and continue working on the scout team. The Cardinals' active roster is set in the backfield, so Foster's chances of receiving a promotion are slim, barring an injury.

D.J. Foster: Placed on practice squad IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was placed on the Cardinals' practice squad injured reserve list Monday due to a quadriceps injury.

Foster played two special-teams snaps in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over Washington before exiting with the injury. He reverted back to the practice squad after the game and will now look to move past the injury before receiving a potential promotion back on the 53-man roster.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Activated to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

With KeeSean Johnson on the COVID-19 list, Foster filled the open spot on the 53-man roster. He played strictly in a special-teams role during Week 1's win over the 49ers, and he could handle similar duties in this Sunday's game against Washington.

D.J. Foster: Back to practice roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster has reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad.

Foster was brought up to the active roster for the season opener versus the 49ers, but he stuck to special teams against the divisional foe. The 26-year-old will drop back to the practice squad and fine-tune his craft.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was added to the active roster Saturday.

Foster initially lost out on a roster spot to seventh-round pick Eno Benjamin. However, he landed on the practice squad and now has a chance to serve as depth among the Cardinals' backfield. In 2019, Foster was a special teams player for the team.

D.J. Foster: Garners practice squad spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Foster to the practice squad Sunday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Foster played strictly on special teams over six games with the Cardinals in 2019, and he couldn't beat out rookie seventh-rounder for the No. 3 RB role behind Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds. If an injury surfaces, expect either Foster or Jonathan Ward to get promoted to the active roster.

D.J. Foster: Unable to make 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals cut Foster on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster played strictly on special teams in 2019, so with the Cardinals drafting Eno Benjamin in April, the 26-year-old Foster was let go. The Cardinals only have three running backs on the roster, and there are already injury concerns about Kenyan Drake (foot), so Foster could be a valuable practice squad add.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Back in desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) re-signed Wednesday with the Cardinals on a one-year contract.

Foster appeared in six contests with the Cardinals in 2019 prior to sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury. When back to full health, he'll spend the summer competing for a reserve role out of the backfield behind Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Foster missed the last two games with the hamstring issue and now is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the season. Kenyan Drake was acquired from Miami (pending a physical) to bolster Arizona's running game while David Johnson (ankle) and Chase Edmonds (hamstring) nurse injuries.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Won't be available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's contest at New Orleans, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Foster hasn't practiced since he was listed as limited on the Cardinals' injury report Thursday, Oct. 17. Prior to that point, he was contained to just special teams, but the fact David Johnson (ankle) received just three snaps on offense Week 7 against the Giants would have opened the door for Foster to contribute on offense behind Chase Edmonds. Instead, Foster will miss a second game in a row while Johnson enters this weekend as questionable to suit up again.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Sits out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant for Wednesday's practice.

The 25-year-old missed last week's game due to the injury and hasn't logged a good start for his chances to suit up for Sunday's game against the Saints. Foster has been restricted to special team's snaps this season and faces an even tougher challenge to see time, as the team added veterans Alfred Morris and Zach Zenner to its roster Wednesday. Foster likely will need to log at least a limited practice session to have a chance to play.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Ruled out with hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Foster strictly has played special teams to this point in the season, but he might have been part of the offense this week with David Johnson (ankle) considered a game-time decision. In any case, Chase Edmonds is left as the only healthy running back on Arizona's roster, with Justin Davis waiting on the practice squad.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Foster appears to have suffered his hamstring injury mid-week, given that he wasn't listed on Wednesday's practice report. It's a positive sign that the depth running back wasn't held out of practice entirely, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be cleared to play Sunday against the Giants. Foster does all his damage on special teams for Arizona.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Ineffective in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) netted minus-2 yards on three rushes during Thursday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Foster spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve due to a torn ACL, so his participation in Thursday's game is a positive step despite a lack of production. The 25-year-old running back is competing with Chase Edmonds, T.J. Logan, Dontae Strickland and Wes Hills for a role behind every-down starter David Johnson.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Easing back into action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) rode a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Foster missed the entire 2018 season with a torn ACL he suffered in late August. Now roughly nine months removed from the injury, the 25-year-old appears to be right on schedule in his recovery and seemingly has a good chance of being ready to go for training camp. At that time, Foster will compete with Chase Edmonds, T.J. Logan and a slew of undrafted rookies for slotting under David Johnson.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Sticking in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Foster (knee) to a one-year contract Friday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Foster has held promise since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but he was active just 10 times in his first two seasons before tearing his ACL in August and missing the entire 2018 campaign. Assuming his rehab goes as planned, he may have a tough time supplanting those above him on the depth chart in Arizona, namely David Johnson, Chase Edmonds and T.J. Logan.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Says he's ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) said he is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation from the ACL tear he suffered in late August, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official website reports.

After playing 10 games for the Patriots and Cardinals over the previous two years, Foster made his case for a spot on Arizona's 53-man roster during training camp in 2018, but he then tore his ACL in the third week of the preseason. He's now scheduled to become a restricted free agent and said he hopes to stay with the Cardinals under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Foster's background as a part-time wide receiver in college could make him useful as a backup to David Johnson, with Kingsbury coming from a pass-happy background at Texas Tech. Of course, the 25-year-old will still need to battle for a roster spot once he regains his health, as the Cardinals have other depth options in the form of Chase Edmonds, T.J. Logan and Brandon Wilds.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) has been placed on IR, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With Foster -- who suffered both a torn ACL and MCL in Sunday's preseason game against the Cowboys -- out for the season, the Cardinals bolstered their running back depth Tuesday by signing Darius Victor.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Diagnosed with ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Foster suffered the injury in Sunday's preseason game against Dallas and will now miss the entire 2018 season. He was competing with T.J. Logan for the No. 3 spot at running back, behind David Johnson and fourth-round rookie Chase Edmonds. The injury moves Logan closer to a roster spot, with potential for a committee role in the event of a Johnson injury. The Cardinals would be wise to check out the free-agent scrap heap after cutdown day.

August 26, 2018 09:04 PM
Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Sustains knee inury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster sustained a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

The extent of Foster's injury has yet to be confirmed. In his absence, T.J. Logan and Sherman Badie could see extra reps out of the backfield.
