Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Inks three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals and Humphries agreed on a three-year, $45 million contract Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The Cardinals wasted no time signing their first-round pick from 2015, as he was set to hit the open market this offseason. Per Garafolo, the deal will include $29 million guaranteed, and Humphries will make $30 million over the first two seasons. Although he's battled injuries, Humphries has started 43 games for the Cardinals over the past four seasons and is expected to operate as the team's starting left tackle during the 2020 season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that Humphries (knee) has been fully cleared for training camp, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Humphries had been battling a right knee injury since the start of the 2017 season, finishing both of the last two years on injured reserve. As evidenced by this news, Humphries will be available for the start of training camp, where he enters the favorite to earn the starting left tackle spot for 2019.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Taking part in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) participated in both individual and team drills at OTAs on Wednesday, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said just over a week earlier that he wasn't sure when Humphries would receive full clearance, but the fact he practiced Wednesday -- albeit in a non-contact session -- is a positive sign. Humphries still isn't 100 percent, however, and may not be until later in training camp or the preseason.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Knee injury still bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury is unsure whether Humphries (knee) will be ready for the start of the Cardinals' offseason program April 8, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.

Humphries has dealt with a right knee injury since Week 1 of the 2017 season, which forced him to injured reserve both of the last two years. When available, Humphries is the Cardinals' starting left tackle. However, his rookie deal expires after the upcoming campaign, so renewed health will be key for his future earning power.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) has been a full participant in training camp, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Humphries is bouncing back from a Nov. 9 incident in which the offensive lineman suffered a dislocated kneecap, torn medial patellofemoral ligament and torn quadriceps. He avoided the PUP list going into training camp after being limited in offseason practices, but he now seems to be practicing without restrictions. Humphries is expected to be the Cardinals' starting left tackle in 2018.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Not on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Humphries was limited throughout offseason activities as he continued to recover from a dislocated right kneecap, as well as a torn medial patellofemoral ligament and right quadriceps -- an injury he suffered in the second half of last season. His absence from the PUP list is a reassuring sign that the tackle will be fully cleared for action by the time the regular season rolls around.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Participating in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) was limited at the Cardinals' first OTA practice Tuesday, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports. "I'm still a little timid in my steps here and there," Humphries said. "Just because I've been doing a lot of stuff on 'air' so this is my first time getting in front of people."

Humphries' third campaign and second as a starter was cut short Week 10, when he dislocated his right kneecap and tore the medial patellofemoral ligament and quadriceps in his right leg. Although his reps were capped Tuesday, he took part in every drill, occasionally subbing out to avoid undue strain on his lower body. There's an expectation the left tackle will be ready to roll by the regular-season opener, and his participation at the start of OTAs signals Humphries is on the right path.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals have exercised the fifth-year option on Humphries' (knee) contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Cardinals evidently like how Humphries has developed since his disappointing rookie season. Moreover, the team must not be too concerned over his prospects of fully recovering from the dislocated kneecap that prematurely ended his 2017 season. Barring any delay in Humphries' recovery process, the 2015 first-round pick is expected to start at left tackle to open the 2018 campaign.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Should be ready by Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) expects to be ready for Week 1 of the 2018 season, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Humphries' third season -- and second as a full-time starter -- ended in Week 10, when he sustained what was later termed a dislocated kneecap, torn medial patellofemoral ligament and torn quadriceps in his right leg. On Tuesday, he expressed uncertainty regarding the length of his recovery, as he heard differing timelines from doctors and the Cardinals. Nonetheless, the left tackle should be back in the fold well before the start of the upcoming campaign.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Not dealing with torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries (knee) is not dealing with a torn ACL but rather a dislocated kneecap, torn medial patellofemoral ligament and torn quadriceps, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Humphries went down in Week 10 against the Seahawks with a right knee injury that was first believed to have involved damage to his ACL. The offensive lineman is "optimistic" he'll be back in time for training camp but there is no firm timeline for his recovery.

Cardinals' D.J. Humphries: Suffers ACL tear Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians reported that Humphries likely tore his ACL during Thursday's game against the Seahawks, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

It appears that Humphries' season will end prematurely, as the left tackle suffered a serious knee injury in Thursday night's contest. The ACL tear has not been confirmed by team doctors, but initial findings are not encouraging, as Arians suggested that Humphries will likely end up on IR. John Wetzel will likely take over at left tackle moving forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
