The Cardinals have placed RB Adrian Peterson on IR. We still don't have any details on his neck injury, but he never returned to practice after going down in Week 12. It ends another disappointing season that saw Peterson muster just 3.4 yards per carry across 10 games with New Orleans and Arizona. He's signed for 2018 for a little more than $1 million, but there's no guarantee the Cardinals bring him back. Peterson turns 33 in March.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Bruce Arians admitted that he has "no idea" if Peterson will play again this season, let alone this week. Look for RB Kerwynn Williams to get another start against the Redskins.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for this weekend’s game against the Titans. Larry Fitzgerald remains the only Arizona WR that should be in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He remained sidelined all week and has no timetable for return. RB Kerwynn Williams gets another start after rushing for 97 yards on the Rams last week, but the matchup against Tennessee is much tougher. The Titans are allowing just 3.4 yards per carry to RBs.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a poor bet to play this weekend. That'd leave Kerwynn Williams as the lead back -- but just a RB3 or flex option vs. a tough Titans run defense.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Bruce Arians said. "We're still waiting on he and the doctors to clear him," Arians added. We still don't have any details on Peterson's injury, but fantasy owners obviously can't be counting on him in Week 14 fantasy lineups right now. RB Kerwynn Williams would get another start vs. the Titans if Peterson remains sidelined.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. He didn’t practice all week, and his status for Week 14 is uncertain. Kerwynn Williams figures to serve as Arizona’s lead back today but will be playing through a rib injury. RB D.J. Foster should handle the majority of the passing-down work.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) a "long shot" to play against the Rams today. "... though the final decision will be made this morning," Rapoport adds. Peterson didn't practice all week and should be on fantasy benches now. RB Kerwynn Williams will draw the start against a Rams defense allowing 4.7 yards per carry to RBs. He figures to lose passing-down work to RB D.J. Foster, though. Consider Williams a low-end RB3/flex option.

The Cardinals have ruled ILB Deone Bucannon out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Bucannon did, reportedly, avoid serious injury to the joint that required surgery in the spring. But he didn't participate in any practice this week. We'll see about Week 14.

Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) didn’t practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. HC Bruce Arians said Friday that AP will be a game-time decision. Unfortunately, Rams-Cardinals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. Hopefully we get an update on his status on Sunday morning. Peterson’s absence would leave Arizona with RBs Kerwynn Williams, D.J. Foster and Elijhaa Penny.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Jaron Brown served as Arizona’s #2 WR last week, with J.J. Nelson #3 and rookie Chad Williams #4. None of these guys are viable fantasy options vs. a tough Rams pass defense.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon left Sunday's win over the Jaguars with an injury to his right ankle, HC Bruce Arians told reporters afterward. That's particularly bad news, because that's the ankle that kept Bucannon out all offseason following spring surgery. We'll see about the specific diagnosis.

Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He could miss multiple games with his turf toe. WRs Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams could see expanded roles, but none can be trusted in fantasy lineups — even with CB Jalen Ramsey expected to sit with a hand injury.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Wednesday that neither RB David Johnson (wrist) nor QB Carson Palmer (arm) has made "expected progress" in his rehab. Neither guy is expected to return this season. Both can safely be dropped from redraft rosters.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians named QB Blaine Gabbert his Week 12 starter. He was decent in Sunday's loss to the Texans, completing 64.7% of his passes with 3 TD and 2 INTs. The task will be much, much tougher this weekend against the Jaguars. Gabbert isn't a Week 12 fantasy option.

Cardinals WR John Brown has been diagnosed with turf toe, HC Bruce Arian said Monday. That's a tough injury that usually costs skill-position guys multiple weeks. Brown is droppable in redraft leagues. WR Larry Fitzgerald will continue dominating targets for Arizona, with WRs Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson getting the scraps.

Cardinals WR John Brown (back) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He put in just 2 limited practices this week. There’s upside in this matchup, but the back issue and QB Blaine Gabbert combine to give Brown a scary-low floor.

Cardinals WR John Brown (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out in between. It sounds like Brown will play, but he’s struggled at less than 100% throughout his career. There’s some upside in this matchup, but the floor is extremely low.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians has named QB Blaine Gabbert his starter for Sunday's game against the Texans. QB Drew Stanton (knee) did practice some this week and might be available for backup duties. Gabbert is on the QB2 and DFS radar thanks to his plus matchup and rushing ability.

The Cardinals and WR Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to a 1-year contract extension. Fitz has considered retirement for the past couple of years, but he's clearly planning to return for another season at this point. The 34-year-old has remained incredibly effective, despite his offense crumbling around him. Fitzgerald is currently on pace for 107 catches, 1,203 yards and 5 TDs.
