Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Leads Cards with 95 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby paced the Cardinals with 95 tackles (74 solo) during the 2017 season.

The tackle output was the lowest for a 16-game slate in Dansby's 14-year career, but the 36-year-old was due for some regression at some point. In the process, he broke his streak of pro-rated campaigns with 100 tackles at 10, signifying that he hasn't fallen too far from his peak. He supplemented his line with one sack, one interception and one fumble recovery, the fifth time he's achieved the feat. As an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Dansby's age could force the Cardinals to look elsewhere at inside linebacker, but he should be good for a significant number of stops wherever he lands.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinal' official site reports.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (knee) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Dansby was removed from a Week 15 matchup at Washington with a calf injury, but his ensuing workload in practice has been impacted by a knee issue. After back-to-back absences, he returned in a limited capacity Friday, giving hope that he'll man his starting spot at inside linebacker Sunday. On the season, Dansby has accrued 79 tackles, one sack, one interception and one fumble recovery in 14 games.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Dansby suffered an undisclosed knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. His level of participation in practice Thursday and Friday will be more indicative of his availability for Sunday's showdown with the Giants.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Injures calf Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby hurt his calf in Sunday's game against the Redskins and is questionable to return, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Dansby left Sunday's game in the third quarter and Josh Bynes initially stepped in. However, if Dansby can't return, expect Haason Reddick and Scooby Wright to also see an increase in defensive snaps. If Dansby's injury is long-term, he could sit out in Week 16 against the Giants and miss his first game since the 2014 season.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Quiet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby recorded three solo tackles and a pass defended in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.

Dansby's tackle total was the second lowest of the season, but he has now logged three passes defended over the previous four games. The veteran saw 54 defensive snaps (84.0 percent) and wil look to bounce back in the tackle department next week against the Rams.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Posts seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Thursday's 22-16 loss to the Seahawks.

Dansby slumped a bit after racking up 10 tackles (six solo) against Indy in Week 2, but he appears to be back on track after posting consecutive seven-tackle performances. However, the veteran linebacker is on pace for just 90 tackles -- a large regression from the 114 he posted last season.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Compiles seven tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (finger/hamstring) posted seven tackles (five solo), one sack and one interception in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Dansby was able to record his first sack and interception of the season Sunday, making it easily his most productive fantasy outing. The veteran linebacker has been inconsistent with his tackle count this season, however, which has limited his usefulness in IDP settings.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (finger/hamstring) is active for Sunday's game in San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

For much of the season, the Cardinals have given the 36-year-old linebacker plenty of rest between games, only this week, finger and hamstring injuries were to blame for a DNP/DNP/limited practice regimen. The preceding was the usual ruse, as he prepares to maintain the usage (91 percent of the defensive snaps) in his third stint in Arizona.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (finger, hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

Dansby sat out practice until putting in a limited session Friday, so it's difficult to pinpoint his likelihood of playing Sunday. Josh Bynes and Scooby Wright could see increased snap counts should the veteran inside linebacker be unable to play against the 49ers.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Misses second straight practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby sat out Thursday's practice due to finger and hamstring injuries, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Dansby exited the Cardinals' most recent game Oct. 22 against the Rams with the finger injury, but the hamstring issue looks to be a new concern for the linebacker. In any case, it's somewhat troubling that Dansby has been unable to take the field in any capacity in the Cardinals' first two practices of the week coming off a bye. The inside linebacker, who has accrued 37 total tackles in seven games on the season, looks to be at risk of missing Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Return questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby is questionable to return to Sunday's game after suffering a hand injury.

Dansby suffered his injury early on in Sunday's game. Look for Josh Bynes to see an increased role as long as Dansby is sidelined.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams in London, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The Cardinals seem to be finding any excuse to cap the 35-year-old's practice reps this season, and the strategy has reaped dividends through six outings, with Dansby logging the second-most defensive snaps (93.9 percent) among the team's linebackers en route to 35 tackles (27 solo).

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

Dansby was at least a limited participant all week in practice, so the expectation is that linebacker will be able to give it a go this Sunday. Expect the linebacker to be a game-time decision this weekend, but given that Dansby is yet to miss a game this season, he should be ready to go.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Records four tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby logged four solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

Dansby's quiet season continued in Week 6, as he has yet to record a sack or turnover on the year. However, he saw 66 defensive snaps (94.0 percent) and figures to continue seeing a heavy workload.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday against the Buccaneers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Despite landing on the injury report weekly with a variety of leg concerns, Dansby has taken the field for 319 of a possible 340 defensive snaps this season. The usage has equated to 31 tackles (23 solo) through five games, which is slightly below his career mark of 6.7 tackles per game entering the 2017 campaign.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Dansby has been slowed by multiple injuries this season, but has yet to miss any games due to any of those concerns. It appears the hamstring issue isn't significant enough to keep Dansby off the field Sunday either, so look for him to handle a full complement of snaps in the Week 6 matchup. Dansby has has amassed 31 tackles through the Cardinals' first five contests.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby is dealing with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Dansby has already dealt with hip, knee and shin injuries this season, and was limited in practice this week with the hamstring issue. Josh Byrnes and Scooby Wright would be due for increased snaps at inside linebacker should Dansby be unable to play.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Cleared from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (knee) isn't listed on the Cardinals' injury report heading into the team's matchup Sunday with the Eagles, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Dansby's knee injury limited his involvement in the first two practices of the week, but his full participation Friday puts him in line to suit up in Week 6. Even at 35 years old, Dansby remains a tackling machine for the Cardinals, having already racked up 26 stops through the team's first four games.

Cardinals' Karlos Dansby: Turns in limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansby (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

For the second week in a row, Dansby has appeared on the team's first injury report, exchanging a shin injury for a hip concern. On this occasion, he actually was able to participate, meaning he should be able to avoid a game-day designation yet again. For the season, Dansby has logged 96.5 percent of the defensive snaps, which has translated to the second-most tackles (17) on the Cardinals.
