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.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Totals 133 receiving yards in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster totaled six rushes for 19 yards and reeled in 17 of 28 passes for 133 yards during seven games with the Cardinals during the 2017 season.

Plucked from the Patriots' practice squad in the aftermath of David Johnson's dislocated wrist in the season opener, Foster didn't make an appearance until Week 11. Thereafter, Foster was consistently targeted in the passing game, whether Blaine Gabbert or Drew Stanton (knee) was under center, averaging four targets per game. A contributor on kickoff returns as well, Foster posted the highest average (23.0 yards per on his right chances) among Cardinals, which could be the determining factor for a roster spot next fall in what's expected to be a crowded backfield.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Playing bit role on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster played 21 of 65 offensive snaps during Sunday's 12-7 win against the Titans.

In the absence of Adrian Peterson the last two games, Kerwynn Williams has been the lead back, accruing 185 yards from scrimmage. Behind Williams, though, Foster has served as a change-of-pace option. With 49 snaps on offense total during that span, Foster has notched four carries for 12 yards and gathered in four of seven passes for 26 yards. Reps will likely dry up if Peterson gets over his neck injury, but there's no timetable for his return, all but guaranteeing touches for Foster moving forward.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Could help with rushing load
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians suggested that Foster could help with the rushing workload if Adrian Peterson (neck) isn't available Sunday against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports.

Foster spent the past two weeks sharing passing-down snaps with Kerwynn Williams, who initially was expected to miss the upcoming game due to cracked ribs. While it turns out Williams will play through his injury, Peterson (neck) didn't practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday. Foster played some wideout at Arizona State and is mostly known for his receiving skills, but he could nonetheless factor into the rushing attack if Peterson is absent or limited. If nothing else, Williams would take on the bulk of the early down work, which in turn would free up a few more snaps for Foster in passing situations.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Set to take on more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Foster will get more snaps while Kerwynn Williams recovers from cracked ribs, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams and Foster had replaced Andre Ellington on passing downs, and Foster's presence on the roster helps to explain why the team released Ellington in a surprise move last week. Foster played both running back and wide receiver at Arizona State, and then latched on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent last season. The team seemingly wanted to develop him as a pass-catching specialist out of the backfield, but there wasn't room on the roster after Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee came on in free agency. The Cardinals poached Foster from New England's practice squad in September but didn't use him in games until the past two weeks. He's already caught five of six targets for 44 yards on only 27 offensive snaps, adding one carry for four yards and two kickoff returns for 50 yards. Williams only played 14 snaps the past two weeks, so his absence shouldn't make a huge difference as Foster continues to cement his place in the Arizona offense.
