Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. There had been hope he'd be ready to make his 2017 debut vs. Dallas, but Bucannon clearly needs more time. We'll need to see him in at least 1 game before putting him into any IDP lineups. Don't be surprised if he returns to a limited role early on.

Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon is expected to make his season debut Monday against the Cowboys. According to Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM in Arizona, Bucannon will be on a snap count in his return game. The veteran put in limited practices all week and missed the full offseason, training camp and preseason following ankle surgery. Karlos Dansby remains the only usable Cardinals ILB in IDP leagues.

The Cardinals have ruled LB Deone Bucannon out for Sunday's game at Detroit. It's not surprising after he missed practice all week. We'll see if the veteran is ready to participate in Week 2. Rookie Haason Reddick figures to start in his place after spending training camp and the preseason working there.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon returned to actual practice Tuesday for the 1st time since having ankle surgery back in May. "He's right on schedule," HC Bruce Arians said, per 98.7 FM in Arizona. "He's got to get in football shape real fast." The coach said they'll need to track Bucannon's progress, but the plan is reportedly for him to start next to Karlos Dansby in Week 1 at Detroit if the veteran proves ready. We wouldn't bet on a full load of snaps right away after such a long layoff, however. Look for rookie Haason Reddick -- who has been filling in for Bucannon -- to mix in. Dansby looks like the best IDP bet among the 3 to open the year.

The Cardinals on Tuesday activated LB Deone Bucannon off the PUP list, but he's not yet practicing. The team website reports that HC Bruce Arians wanted Bucannon active so that he could participate in walkthroughs, with the hope that the LB will be ready to practice next week. “We haven’t been counting on Deone,” Arians said. “That’s going to be a blessing (if he plays).” Bucannon has been out since spring ankle surgery and makes for a high-risk pick in IDP leagues.
