Robert Nkemdiche: Suspension lifted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche remains a free agent and can sign with any team. He's played limited snaps in two games for the Dolphins so far this season.

Robert Nkemdiche: Handed two-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche was suspended two weeks by the NFL on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Nkemdiche will be eligible to return Week 13. The 25-year-old defensive end was recently let go by the Dolphins after appearing in two games.

Robert Nkemdiche: Waived by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

Nkemdiche had just been activated off the PUP list in late October after recovering from a torn ACL suffered late last season, but he logged just 18 total defensvie snaps in two games as a Dolphin. The 2016 first-round pick should foster interest on the market, but Nkemdiche has disappointed with just 4.5 career sacks.

Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Returns from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was activated off the PUP list Monday.

Nkemdiche ready to go after suffering a torn ACL late last season, and he'll be eligible to play Monday at Pittsburgh, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. The 25-year-old's immediate role isn't clear, but he should slot into the Dolphins' defensive line rotation in some fashion.

Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Receives return designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was designated to return off the PUP list and resumed practicing Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Nkemdiche suffered a torn ACL late last season with the Cardinals and was waived in July before signing with the Dolphins and eventually landing on the PUP list. The team now has 21 days to determine whether to move him to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve for the rest of the year.

Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Starts season on reserve/PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was placed on Miami's reserve/PUP list Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

Nkemdiche's placement on the reserve/PUP list guarantees that he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The former Cardinal is recovering from a torn ACL and working to revitalize his career with the Dolphins.

Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Lands in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) signed a one-year, $1.16 million contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Dolphins placed Nkemdiche on the PUP list following the signing. The 2016 first-round pick is coming off a torn ACL, and he's not expected to retake the field until September. After having worn out his welcome in Arizona and being waived, Nkemdiche will now work to earn a second chance in Miami. The Dolphins are in need of talent at the defensive end position -- Jonathan Woodard has only played 128 snaps in his NFL career and is expected to start on the left side -- so Nkemdiche could conceivably carve out a notable role if he looks the part.

Robert Nkemdiche: Absence extends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche is not expected to be ready until September as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Nkemdiche will be heading into his ninth month of rehab after having surgery in December to repair a torn ACL, and it's been a tumultuous week for the former first-round pick. First he was officially waived by the Cardinals on Saturday as they cited Nkemdiche as being "out of shape," and now will continue to recover until at least September. Interested teams will surely keep a close eye on his recovery process during the month of August to evaluate his health and work ethic going forward.

Robert Nkemdiche: Goes through waivers unclaimed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) cleared waivers Monday, becoming a free agent in the process, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Cardinals officially waived Nkemdiche on Saturday with a failed physical designation, per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. The move followed a comment from coach Kliff Kingsbury, who termed Nkemdiche "not in shape" late last week. Apparently, the Cardinals were disappointed in his rehab from a torn ACL and opted to move on from the 2016 first-round pick. Nkemdiche will be subject to a physical from interested parties, which could hurt potential employment.

Robert Nkemdiche: Gets boot from Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals released Nkemdiche (knee) on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Nkemdiche was oft-injured in his three campaigns with the Cardinals, which included a torn ACL in Week 14 of last season. Still, the 2016 first-round pick wasn't very productive in 27 career appearances, totaling 44 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two passes defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. The last straw for Nkemdiche may have been a lack of commitment to his current rehab after coach Kliff Kingsbury called the defensive end "not in shape" Friday. Considering his pedigree, it wouldn't surprise if another team takes a chance on Nkemdiche with the hope he can turn it around.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Not in football shape
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury indicated Friday that Nkemdiche (knee) is not football shape yet, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nkemdiche is still working through the recovery process from an ACL tear suffered in Week 14 of last season. It sounds like he still has a ways to go, which likely explains his placement on the PUP list to kick off training camp. The Cardinals opted not to pick up the lineman's rookie fifth-year option back in May.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Placed on preseason PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was placed on the physically unable to perform list Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

It's been a difficult offseason for the 2016 first-round pick. After playing in only 27 of his 48 potential appearances, the Cardinals opted not to pick up Nkemdiche's rookie fifth-year option in May. The edge rusher was then arrested June 6 for speeding and driving on a suspended license -- a legal event that has yet to yield any sort of repercussions while processing through the court systems. Considering Nkemdiche is expected to miss at least some regular-season action while he recovers from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 14 last year, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 24-year-old placed on the regular-season PUP list, but that roster decision likely won't come for a number of weeks.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Arrested for traffic violation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was arrested in Scottsdale, AZ, on June 6 for speeding and driving on a suspended license, Clayton Klapper of ABC 15 Arizona reports.

Nkemdiche was reportedly pulled over for going 75 mph in a 45 mph zone and, during the stop, the attending officer discovered Nkemdiche had a warrant issued for his arrest for driving on a suspended license and failing to appear for a court hearing. The Cardinals are aware of the incident but no discipline will likely come until the legal system has run its course.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Has fifth-year option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals won't pick up the fifth-year option on Nkemdiche's (knee) rookie contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Since the Cardinals selected Nkemdiche 20th overall in the 2016 draft, he's been plagued by injuries, culminating with a torn ACL in Week 14 of last season. The struggle to stay healthy has resulted in just 27 appearances in 48 potential games, though he finally flashed some of his potential with 4.5 sacks among 32 tackles in 10 outings in 2018. With his rehab likely to encompass most of the upcoming campaign, the Cardinals seem to be making a cost-cutting move for the future, likely hoping he'll sign a prove-it deal next offseason to reestablish his value.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Will have surgery for torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn ACL, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nkemdiche was placed on injured reserve Monday after tearing his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Over 10 games this season, Nkemdiche had 32 tackles (22 solo) and 4.5 sacks. Zach Moore and Benson Mayowa will likely take over for the remainder of the season.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nkemdiche was removed from Sunday's game against the Lions with a knee injury and was unable to return. Though the nature of his injury is unknown, coach Steve Wilks said that Nkemdiche will require surgery.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Leaves game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions with a knee injury, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Nkemdiche has been backing up Corey Peters and Rodney Gunter at defensive tackle. Zach Moore and Benson Mayowa should fill in for the 24-year-old while he is out.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Monster game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche recorded eight tackles (six solo), including 2.5 sacks, in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Nkemdiche had a great individual game Sunday despite Arizona's struggles. Four of his eight tackles were for loss, while his 2.5 sacks more than doubled his career total. The Cardinals will hope Nkemdiche's game was more than a flash in the pan as they gear up for a Week 13 matchup with the Packers.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Nkemdiche is slated to return from a two-game absence and likely will draw the start at defensive tackle next to Corey Peters. Nkemdiche logged 51 snaps in his last contest against the 49ers.

Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nkemdiche (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nkemdiche has missed two consecutive games due to a lingering calf issue. The 2016 first-round pick was a limited participant in practice all week, and his status for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers remains uncertain. If Nkemdiche is unable to go, Olsen Pierre (ankle) and Rodney Gunter could once again benefit from increased snap counts.
