Cardinals DE J.J. Watt announced Tuesday morning that he'll be retiring at the end of this season. That will end a 12-year career that included 5 All-Pro selections, 3 Associated Press defensive player of the year honors and a spot on the Hall of Fame's All-2010s team. We'll see how Arizona replaces him for 2023 after what's been a strong rebound season for Watt.

Cardinals LB Zaven Collins (shoulder) and DE J.J. Watt (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Collins managed limited practices all week. Watt sat out Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll check the status of both players Sunday.

Cardinals S Jalen Thompson (toe) and DE J.J. Watt (calf) are active for today's game against the Raiders. It'll be Watt's season debut, making him a risky option. Thompson should be fine to use as planned, though we'll see whether he's limited at all.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He practiced Thursday for the 1st time since training camp. That, however, fell between a missed practice Wednesday and a limited Friday. He'll make for a risky IDP option even if active Sunday.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. CB Byron Murphy (illness) is active after coming in questionable.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He missed the entire practice week and looks like a poor IDP bet even if he turns up active. Arizona also ruled out CB Trayvon Mullen (toe), a recent acquisition from the Raiders, and deemed CB Byron Murphy questionable with an illness that sidelined him Friday. The matchup looks pretty favorable for Kansas City offensive players.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt will have surgery on the shoulder injury that had already ruled him out for Thursday night's game against the Packers. According to multiple reports, this is likely to end Watt's season. NFL Netwrok's Ian Rapoport reports that Watt will likely need "at least" 3 months to recover. Watt reportedly hurt the shoulder in the 2nd quarter of the Week 7 win over Houston but played through it for the 2nd half. Watt's contract looks locked in with Arizona through next year.

The Cardinals have ruled DE J.J. Watt out for Thursday night's game against the Packers because of a shoulder injury. We had Watt low in the Week 8 DL rankings anyway, so this shouldn't be a huge loss for IDP lineups.

The Cardinals on Monday activated DE J.J. Watt off the PUP list. Watt had been easing back in after he hurt a hamstring during the conditioning test at the start of camp. "We wanted to make sure we were really cautious, make sure he felt 100 percent before we got him back out there," HC Kliff Kingsbury said before practice, per ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. Watt added: "We definitely took our time." Barring some setback, expect Watt to be ready for the season.

The Cardinals placed DE J.J. Watt on the PUP list Wednesday after the veteran experienced hamstring soreness following Tuesday's conditioning test. According to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, Watt said he doesn't expect to practice Thursday and isn't sure when he'll return to the field. "We're gonna take it very slow and be very smart about it," Watt said. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but there's no reason for panic at this point.
