  • Cardinals' Budda Baker: Playing Sunday, likely out Week 4

    Baker, who doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions, is playing through a UCL tear in his thumb and plans to undergo surgery next week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The All-Pro safety has been a premier IDP over the past two seasons, compiling at least 100 stops in both 2018 and 2019 and totaling 2.5 sacks, seven passes defensed and two forced fumbles between the two years. He's off to another strong start to 2020 with 20 tackles in two games, but Baker's fantasy managers should prepare to be without his services following the game against the Detroit. According to Rapoport, Baker is undergoing a procedure similar to the one that sidelined the Saints' Drew Brees for five games in 2019. As a non-skill position player, Baker should be able to play with a cast or splint on the thumb and won't require as long of an absence as Brees, but the Cardinals expect on the 24-year-old missing the Week 4 game in Carolina before returning to action Week 5 against the Jets.

  • Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Added to roster before Week 3 game

    Ward was added to Arizona's 53-man roster Saturday, Alex Weiner of SI.com reports.

    There's a good chance Ward still ends up inactive on game day against the Lions, as the Cardinals have the one-two punch of Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds, as well as seventh-rounder Eno Benjamin, on the roster at the running back position ahead of Ward.

  • Cardinals' Mason Cole: Ruled out again

    Cole (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Cole didn't practice in any capacity this week, so it's not surprising to see that he'll miss a second-straight game due to his hamstring injury. In the meantime, Lamont Gaillard will draw another start at center.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Phillips: Pegged as questionable

    Phillips (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

    After being a non-participant during Wednesday's practice, Phillips has logged two straight limited sessions. We won't know his final status until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, and if he's ruled out, expect Angelo Blackson to bump into a starting DE role.

  • Cardinals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Dealing with neck injury

    Kirkpatrick (neck) was a limited participant Friday and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

    Kirkpatrick was added to the injury report Friday, so he'll need to make a quick recovery to suit up Sunday. He's a fixture on the Cardinals' defense, and if he's unable to play, the team will have only three healthy cornerbacks, which would mean Kevin Peterson will handle an uptick in usage.

  • Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Season debut on tap

    Johnson is expected to have a role Sunday against the Lions with Christian Kirk (groin) sidelined, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Johnson missed the first two games of the season due to a spell on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but now that he's available, coach Kliff Kingsbury believes both Johnson and Andy Isabella will be involved in Arizona's offense. After being a regular part of the receiving corps as a rookie last year through the team's Week 12 bye, Johnson didn't log a single snap in the final five games of the campaign. His 8.8 YPC and 50 percent catch rate were uninspiring, to say the least, but he'll have a chance to make an impact as long as Kirk is sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Andy Isabella: In line for more work

    Isabella is poised for a bigger workload with Christian Kirk (groin) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Isabella has earned exactly 14 offensive plays in both of Arizona's first two games of the season, falling short of a 20-percent snap share each time. Following word that Kirk is sidelined this weekend, his 69-percent share has been cleared for the likes of Isabella and KeeSean Johnson to work with DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald in three-wide sets. While Johnson is set to make his season debut Sunday after spending time on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Isabella is coming off a Week 2 performance versus Washington in which he recorded catches of 54 and 13 yards on his pair of targets. The speedster will aim to add a vertical element to the Cardinals offense in the short term.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Out this week

    Kirk (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Kirk dropped from 77 percent snap share and five targets in the season opener to 61 percent snap share and four targets Week 2 against Washington. It isn't clear that was related to the groin injury, but we do now know Kirk will miss at least one game. Andy Isabella and Trent Sherfield are the candidates to see snaps alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald in three-wide formations, with Isabella's 4.31 speed making him a better fit for the downfield role Kirk (20.4 aDOT) has been used in this year.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Absent from practice again

    Kirk (groin) isn't participating in the media-access portion of Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Absent from practice for a third straight day, Kirk figures to have a designation on the final injury report, though it remains to be seen which one. The lack of practice participation suggests a game-time decision is the best-case scenario.
