Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Comes off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Kennard from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.

Kennard sat out Sunday's loss to the Dolphins after testing positive for COVID-19, but he's now been fully cleared to return to team facilities. The starting linebacker also resumed practicing Wednesday, and he can be considered on track to take the field against Buffalo in Week 10.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Tracking to return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that he's "hopeful" that Kennard will be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and return to practice this week, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard tested positive for the virus at least seven days ago, and he's only required to miss three more days as long as he passes the COVID-19 protocols. Therefore, he may return to practice Wednesday or Thursday, and he's expected to be an option for Sunday's matchup against the Bills.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Ruled out against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (illness) won't play Sunday against Miami, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and he won't be eligible to come off until he's asymptomatic and 10 days have passed since his last positive test. Those requirements could be fulfilled in time for Kennard to face Buffalo in Week 10, and coach Kliff Kingsbury added that there have been no new positive tests on the team.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard announced via his personal Twitter account Monday he tested positive for COVID-19.

The Cardinals shut down their facility over the weekend due to some positive tests, and Kennard was one of the infected individuals. The 29-year-old will be unavailable until he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols, so he'll be sidelined until further notice.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Deemed questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (calf) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard has missed the last two games, but after logging three straight limited practice sessions, he has a shot to return to the lineup Monday. If he's able to go, the 29-year-old is expected to start at outside linebacker, where he's produced seven tackles and two sacks through the first two games. His pass-rushing ability will be even more important with Chandler Jones (biceps) out for the year.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Unavailable Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The 29-year-old will be sidelined for the second consecutive game due to the calf injury. Haason Reddick and Kylie Fitts should see increased snaps in Kennard's continued absence.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Unavailable against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Kennard recorded a sack in two straight games before suffering a calf injury that kept him out of practice all week. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup, but his next chance will be Week 5 against the Jets. For the time being, Haason Reddick will likely start at outside linebacker.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals have handed Kennard (calf) a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Panthers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard's questionable status is seemingly optimistic as he was unable to practice all week. Still, the team will wait to see how he is feeling closer to kickoff before making a final decision. Look for some combination of Haason Reddick and Kylie Fitts to see increased reps at outside linebacker if Kennard is ultimately unable to go.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (calf) did not practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard has now missed back-to-back practices, and he'll only have one more chance to increase his reps ahead of Sunday's game in Carolina. Haason Reddick would stand to see an uptick in defensive snaps if Kennard is forced to miss any time.

Cardinals' Devon Kennard: Finds new home quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (hamstring) agreed Wednesday with Arizona on a three-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Kennard was cut by the Lions on Tuesday and reached an agreement with the Cardinals one day later. The 28-year-old isn't dominant at any specific facet of playing defense but he's shown the versatility to line up as an edge rusher or an off-ball linebacker, and he's capable of defending the run, pressuring quarterbacks or dropping into coverage. Kennard could play inside linebacker, outside linebacker or both in a 3-4 scheme under Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. A hamstring injury from December shouldn't be any problem by the time training camp begins.

Devon Kennard: Cut by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions released Kennard (hamstring) on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Kennard is coming off back-to-back seven-sack seasons in Detroit, where he displayed competence as a pass rusher, run defender and cover man. However, he wasn't necessarily great at any of those tasks, and the Lions are now signing a similarly versatile (and flashier) player in Jamie Collins. It shouldn't take Kennard too long to find a new home, assuming his hamstring injury from Week 17 isn't serious.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Won't return Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (hamstring) will not return to Sunday's contest against the Packers.

Kennard concludes the 2019 season with 58 tackles (45 solo) and seven sacks across 16 contests. He also forced recovered two fumbles, one of which was forced and one of which he returned for a score.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Exits with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard exited Sunday's game against the Packers with a hamstring injury.

Kennard shook off a shoulder injury to suit up for Sunday's game, but it appears his day could be over. The 28-year-old outside linebacker didn't record a tackle before departing. If he's unable to return, Kennard will finish the year with 58 tackles and seven sacks, with the latter tying his career high.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game versus Green Bay.

Kennard received the questionable tag despite putting in a full practice session Friday, so it's no surprise he's good to go Week 17. The 28-year-old should work in his typical starting role against the Packers.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Status for Week 17 uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's divisional matchup versus the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

After logging two limited practice sessions, Kennard was a full participant Friday, suggesting he's likely to suit up Week 17. If he's forced to miss the final game of the regular season, however, look for Anthony Pittman to draw the start at one of the outside linebacker positions.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (shoulder) put in a limited practice Thursday.

Kennard entered Week 16 wearing the questionable tag with a hamstring issue but emerged with a shoulder injury. Nevertheless, he's logged two limited practices this week. If the 28-year-old is forced to miss Sunday's game against the Packers, Jahlani Tavai would stand to see more snaps.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Ready to face Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Kennard is having a solid campaign, as his 53 tackles are just eight shy of a career high, and his seven sacks are already tied for a career best. The sixth-year linebacker will continue filling a starting outside linebacker role.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Dons questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Kennard wasn't able to practice until Friday and was limited while doing so. Jahlani Tavai and Jalen Reeves-Maybin should continue to get extra playing time.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Kennard suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of last Sunday's game versus the Buccanneers and did not return. He recorded four tackles (two solo) and a sack in the loss to Tampa Bay. If Kennard continues to be held out of practice, don't expect him to be on the field Sunday when the Lions visit Denver.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard left Sunday's game against the Buccaneers due to a hamstring injury.

Kennard suffered the injury during the second half and won't be able to return. Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Jason Cabinda may see increased defensive snaps for the Lions.
