Cardinals GM Steve Keim gave a breakdown on rookie RB Keaontay Ingram. "A big, physical back. A downhill runner. A good special teamer. A guy that we think can certainly contribute," Keim said. "Thought he had a really nice year this year and a lot of good things to like about him.” In 2021, Ingram posted 156-911-5 (10 games) as a power back for USC. Across 4 seasons (2 at USC, 2 at Texas) Ingram collected 89 receptions. The 6th-round pick will battle Eno Benjamin, Jonathan Ward, Jaylen Samuels and UDFA Ronnie Rivers for a depth role behind James Conner.

Cardinals RB James Conner suffered a rib injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks and is officially questionable to return. Arizona is already without RB Chase Edmonds and also lost RB Jonathan Ward to a knee injury today. RB Eno Benjamin is the last man standing.

Cardinals RB James Conner (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. We're expecting him to play after getting in 3 limited practices this week but will look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Seahawks-Cardinals kicks off at 4:25 pm ET. With RB Chase Edmonds (ribs, toe) ruled out, Arizona would be down to RBs Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward if Conner can't go.

Cardinals RB James Conner (heel) is inactive for tonight's game agains the Colts. That leaves Arizona's backfield to Chase Edmonds, Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward. Edmonds should handle the bulk of the work and is a strong fantasy play tonight.

Cardinals RBs James Conner (ankle) and Chase Edmonds (ankle) are active for today’s game vs. the Lions. Conner only got in a limited practice on Friday after hurting his ankle at the end of last week’s loss to the Rams. Edmonds is back after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 9. It’s unclear exactly how touches will be divvied today, but both guys are RB2s with upside vs. Detroit’s 29th-ranked RB defense. RB Eno Benjamin is a healthy scratch today.

The Cardinals have placed RB Chase Edmonds on IR for his high-ankle sprain. We already knew he'd miss this week and was expected to miss multiple games. He's still reportedly expected to return, but it's not yet clear whether Arizona expects to get him back after the mandatory 3-game absence. James Conner takes over the backfield in Edmonds' absence, with Eno Benjamin behind him.

Update: The Cardinals are also adding RB Tavien Feaster to the roster, with Edmonds out.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. He’ll likely miss multiple weeks with his high-ankle sprain. James Conner should get a heavy workload this weekend, making him a borderline RB1. Eno Benjamin will be Arizona’s #2 RB.

The Cardinals believe RB Chase Edmonds suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the 49ers, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Edmonds is scheduled for an MRI on Monday. As Rapoport notes, high-ankle sprains generally keep players sidelined for 4-6 weeks. We'll look for further updates on Edmonds, but James Conner could flirt with RB1 production for however long Edmonds is out. Eno Benjamin will be Arizona's #2 RB.

The Cardinals on Thursday placed RB James Conner on the COVID list as a high-risk close contact. As long as Conner tests negative, he should be back soon with no reason for further concern. We'll keep an eye out for updates on his situation. Jonathan Ward and Eno Benjamin should see extra reps for as long as Conner is out.

We passed along a positive review recently of RB Eno Benjamin's work in training camp, including praise from his head coach. Arizona's initial "unofficial" depth chart, however, lists the 2nd-year back 5th behind Chase Edmonds, James Conner, Jonathan Ward and D.J. Foster. These depth charts, of course, can often prove meaningless, especially this early in the roster-whittling process. But we wouldn't go targeting Benjamin in drafts just yet.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury says RB Eno Benjamin has improved in some key ways over his rookie year. "I can't tell you how far [Eno] has come from last training camp to now, the way he is approaching the game, study habits, in the classroom," the coach told Darren Urban of the team website. "We all know he is dynamic when the ball is in his hands, but he is starting to do those other things in pass protection and on special teams we have been waiting to see." Those aspects will be key to Benjamin making the roster. He did so last year but spent all 16 games inactive. Making this year's roster wouldn't necessarily make Benjamin fantasy relevant, but it might put him a James Conner (or Chase Edmonds) injury away from being worth a waiver pickup.

The Cardinals selected Arizona State RB Eno Benjamin in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. We’re surprised he lasted this long. Benjamin is a fun watch; a Tazmanian Devil-style runner who darts and spins his way through traffic. Some scouts think he does too much dancing, though, which might explain his underwhelming 5.0 career yards per carry. Benjamin ranked a mediocre 15th among 21 of this year’s top RB prospects in Pro Football Focus’ 2019 Elusive Rating and 14th in the site’s rushing grades. And although he racked up 553 carries over the past 2 years, the 5’9, 207-pounder is likely too small to handle big workloads as a pro. On the plus side, Benjamin tested as a 72nd percentile athlete at the Combine and leads this RB class in career receptions (82), career receptions per game (2.4) and 2019 market share of receptions (18.0%). He should compete with Chase Edmonds for change-of-pace duties behind Kenyan Drake in Arizona.
