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 RB James Conner (heel) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game vs. the Colts. He didn't practice all week. HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled Conner a game-time decision. Conner said that this is a pain-management issue and that he's "confident" he'll play on Saturday. We'll get Arizona's inactives around 7 pm ET.

Cardinals RB James Conner has yet to practice this week and is on the injury report with a heel. It was an ankle issue that had him questionable going into last week's game vs. the Lions. We'll see if Conner practices tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Colts.

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.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Lions today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Conner is listed as questionable after getting in just a limited practice on Friday, so don't expect him to be at 100%. That -- plus the return of Chase Edmonds -- knocks Conner into lower-end RB2 territory this week. The matchup, of course, adds plenty of upside.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) has been activated from IR. He's on track to play vs. the Lions on Sunday -- his 1st action since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 9. Edmonds averaged 9.4 carries and 4.6 targets in the 8 games prior and should see at least that much work vs. Detroit with RB James Conner dealing with an ankle injury.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but HC Kliff Kingsbury said that he’s optimistic about both Conner and RB Chase Edmonds’ availability for Sunday’s game. Edmonds (ankle) remains on IR and will need to be activated by 4 pm ET on Saturday. We’ll keep you updated on Arizona’s backfield.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but there's certainly a chance that he doesn't play vs. the Lions this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Cardinals RB James Conner is considered "day-to-day" with his ankle injury, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. It sounds like his MRI came back relatively clean. Conner still shouldn't be considered a lock to play vs. the Lions on Sunday, but we'll keep you updated on his status.

Cardinals RB James Conner will get an MRI on the ankle he injured on the 2nd-to-last play of Monday night's loss to the Rams, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. We'll pass along an update as soon as we get one. Kingsbury also admitted that he's played Conner too many snaps in Chase Edmonds' absence, so we can expect Conner's volume to be scaled back with Edmonds likely back for Week 15.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) was not activated from IR and won't play against the Rams tonight. He should be back for Week 15's game vs. the Lions. James Conner gets another game as Arizona's feature back tonight.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is expected back for Week 14 vs. the Rams. Edmonds has been sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 9. James Conner gets 1 more game as feature back vs. the Bears this weekend.

Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hear that Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is unlikely to play vs. the Seahawks today. Schefter reports that a final decision on Murray's status won't be made until pregame warmups but that "signs point" to QB Colt McCoy getting another start. Rapoport says there's a "chance" Murray is able to play -- but a "better chance" that it's McCoy. We won't get Arizona's inactives until 3 pm ET, so Murray belongs on fantasy benches unless we get a more optimistic report on his status. McCoy played well in his 1st start vs. the 49ers 2 weeks ago but bombed last week vs. the Panthers. He's a low-end QB2 and a clear downgrade for Arizona's offense.

1:20pm EST 11/13/21

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.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Browns. QB coach Cam Turner is also out after testing positive. Kingsbury is an offensive-minded coach and Arizona's play caller, so it's notable news for QB Kyler Murray and the rest of this offense. We're not adjusting our projections for the Cardinals offense, but the situation adds downside risk.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, and HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled Edmonds a game-time decision. It’s a 4:25 pm ET kickoff, but hopefully we get an update on Edmonds on Sunday morning. He’ll obviously carry elevated risk if he’s active. If not, RB James Conner will be a strong fantasy play.

The Cardinals on Monday activated RB James Conner from the COVID list. He had landed there Aug. 12 as a high-risk close contact. Conner's return after just 4 days says he never tested positive for the virus. That he was deactivated as a close contact, though, also indicates Conner hasn't been vaccinated. So he's good to go for now. We'll see whether this issue pops back up for him at any point.

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.
