Gunter will stay in Arizona for a fifth season, but he may have lost his starting job in March when the team signed Darius Philon away from the Chargers. Gunter has 95 tackles and eight sacks in 64 NFL games, with 10 of his 25 starts occurring in 2018. He'll likely play defensive end in a 3-4 scheme under new coordinator Vance Joseph.
Gunter was initially listed as questionable due to a foot injury, but will ultimately avoid missing his first game of the season. The fourth-year defensive tackle appears on track to field his usual starting workload.
Gunter (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Gunter was unable to practice Wednesday, but he managed to get in limited practices Thursday and Friday. The Delaware State product hasn't missed a game this season. Gunter has also logged at least 40 defensive snaps in five of the last six games. If Gunter misses time Sunday, Vincent Valentine would likely see those snaps.
Gunter (personal) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Gunter was listed as questionable due to the death of his father but will still play Sunday, as expected. The 26-year-old could see an increased workload against Oakland with starting defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (calf) inactive.
Gunter was understandably absent from practice all week due to the death of his father, but is reportedly on track to suit up during Sunday's game against the Raiders. If the defensive tackle is able to play, expect him to serve his usual rotational role.
