Reddick was questionable entering Sunday after a solid performance last week against the Chargers. He'll start at linebacker once again as Arizona looks to take down the Packers in Green Bay.
Reddick was unable to practice Wednesday, but he logged limited practices Thursday and Friday. The second-year-pro hasn't missed a game this season and logged eight tackles (three solo) over 69 defensive snaps and five snaps on special teams in Week 12 against the Chargers. If Reddick is unable to take the field Sunday, Dennis Gardeck could get more work.
Reddick posted eight tackles (all solo), including one sack, two passes defensed, and a forced fumble, in Sunday's win over the 49ers.
Reddick had seen only 30 snaps in the four weeks prior to Sunday's outing. His eight tackles against San Francisco more than doubled his season total entering the day, and his sack gives him two on the season. He hadn't been given many opportunities prior to Week 5, but he could be a quality IDP option if he starts to see significant snap totals going forward.
Selected 13th overall in last year's draft, Reddick split time between inside and outside linebacker as a rookie in Arizona's 3-4 scheme, notching 36 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles across 445 defensive snaps (27.8 per game). He said in early April that he expected to play inside linebacker as the Cardinals transition to a 4-3 base defense, but it now seems Josh Bynes is ticketed for that role. While Reddick's versatility should come in handy for the Arizona defense, it won't necessarily lend itself to a three-down role or a plethora of pass-rushing opportunities. Chandler Jones and Markus Golden (knee) figure to serve as the primary edge rushers, assuming the latter recovers from a torn ACL in time for Week 1. Reddick should have a clear spot in the base defense, but he may need to compete with Golden or Bynes to earn snaps when the Cardinals deploy nickel formations.
