Nkemdiche (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Nkemdiche will miss his second straight game with the calf issue after being a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday. Olsen Pierre and Rodney Gunter should see increased snap counts Sunday against Oakland.
Nkemdiche sat out last week's loss to the Chiefs and began this week not practicing, but was able to progress to a limited participant. Rodney Gunter and Olsen Pierre would both see increased workloads should Nkemdiche be unable to suit up.
Nkemdiche (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Nkemdiche started the week not practicing after missing last Sunday's game against the 49ers but finished the week with two limited practices to earn the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should serve his usual starting role on the interior of Arizona's defensive line.
Nkemdiche (foot) is listed as inactive Sunday in San Francisco.
Through four games, the third-year defensive tackle has already surpassed the output from his first two pro campaigns (14 tackles and two sacks, versus 11 and zero, respectively). He won't get a chance to build on those numbers, though, after his workload decreased in each and every practice this week due to a foot injury. He'll aim to return next Sunday at Minnesota.
Nkemdiche nursed a foot injury before the season opener and it appears he had a hiccup this week. The third-year pro has made 14 tackles (11 solo) and two sacks through the first two games. If he doesn't play, expect Olsen Pierre and Rodney Gunter to see an uptick in snaps.
