Cardinals ILB Joe Walker (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Walker put in limited practices all week and seems in line to play. He's merely a lower-level IDP option.

Cardinals S Jalen Thompson (concussion) and CB Byron Murphy (calf) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Use them as you were planning in IDP lineups.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson left Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a calf injury. It's not yet clear how serious the injury might be. We'll keep an eye on his situation throughout this week. Arizona slot CB Tramaine Brock missed Week 10 with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. That could leave the Cardinals without 2 of their top 3 cover guys for the Week 11 visit to San Francisco.

Cardinals S Deionte Thompson (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. With slot CB Tramaine Brock also out, S Jalen Thompson looks like a lock for full playing time in a high-upside matchup. OLB Terrell Suggs (hamstring) is active after entering the day questionable.

Cardinals ILBs Jordan Hicks (calf) and Haason Reddick (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Hicks missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday workout. Reddick put in limited practices all week and looks like the better bet to play.

Cardinals LBs Haason Reddick (shoulder) and Terrell Suggs (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Reddick put in limited practices the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday and seems to be trending toward playing. Suggs missed the full week of practice but also barely practiced last week. He still played three-quarters of that game. We'll check on the status of both players Sunday.

Cardinals OLB Terrell Suggs is active for today's game against the Bengals. He has been dealing with a back injury, which makes him a risky IDP play. There is upside for deep leagues, though.

Cardinals OLB Terrell Suggs is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. A back issue kept him out of practice Thursday and Friday. HC Kliff Kingsbury indicated that missing the game is a possibility, according to USA Today's Cards Wire. It sounds like Suggs will be a game-day decision. We've moved him down the LB rankings for the week on the uncertainty. It remains an upside matchup, though.

The Cardinals are releasing S D.J. Swearinger, according to multiple reports. That's not surprising, as Swearinger has been the main culprit in Arizona's awful coverage against TEs. It's also the 2nd team to dump him in less than a year. Swearinger joined the Cardinals after Washington cut him from a starting position there. We'll see who Arizona plans to insert into the lineup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the league has suspended Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson for 6 games for violating the PED policy. Peterson is reportedly not appealing the ban. He's not much of an IDP factor, so the biggest fantasy impact will be on Arizona's first 6 opponents. The Lions, Ravens, Panthers, Seahawks, Bengals and Falcons can enjoy having their lead WRs running free of 1 of the league's top cover men. As for the Cardinals defense, Peterson's early absence should make it easier for 2nd-round rookie Byron Murphy to start right away. Robert Alford will claim a spot after signing a 3-year deal with $13.5 million in guarantees. Arizona also added David Amerson and Tramaine Brock at the position.

The Cardinals selected DE Zach Allen to begin the 3rd round of the NFL Draft. Allen clocked an ugly 5.0-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine that produced a well below-average 89.9 speed score. His college production was better, including 10+ tackles for loss each of the past 3 years and 15+ each of the past 2. Allen looks like more of a "base" end with a limited sack ceiling.

The Cardinals will be signing LB Jordan Hicks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hicks should grab a full-time role in the middle of Arizona's 3-4 base front and be in line for at least solid IDP value. His departure leaves a void in the middle of the Philly defense. We'll see how the team addresses it.

The Cardinals are expected to sign OLB Terrell Suggs when free agency opens Wednesday, according to multiple reports. Despite turning 36 in October, Suggs never saw much of a playing-time dip in Baltimore and appeared in all 16 games each of the past 2 years -- 15+ games in 5 of the past 6 seasons. He figures to join the edge rotation for an Arizona defense that's switching back to a 3-4 base under new DC Vance Joseph in 2019. We'll see whether the Cards retain free-agent DE/OLB Markus Golden, or if they signed Suggs to simply replace him.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson (illness) is active for today's game against the Rams. He's not a strong IDP option but is available if he's been in your plans. DE Markus Golden (ankle) is inactive.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is active for today's game against the Falcons. He's fine to use in IDP lineups as you normally would.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He has played through questionable tags the past 2 weeks, though, and put in an extra practice this week (Thursday, limited) vs. last week. Bet on Baker being available for your IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is active for today's game against the Lions. Baker only practiced Friday after returning last week from a 2-game absence, but he's OK to use if you were waiting on him for your IDP lineup.

Cardinals S Budda Baker is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. He missed Wednesday and Thursday with his injured knee before returning to a limited workout Friday. HC Steve Wilks said he's "very hopeful" Baker will play. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon, ahead of the 4:25 ET kickoff.
