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.

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: 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.
