Cardinals S Budda Baker missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury. DC Vance Joseph, however, said Thursday that he still expects Baker to play Sunday against the Bills, according to Kevin Zimmerman of ArizonaSports.com. We'll see about Baker's Friday participation and game status. Chris Banjo is listed as his backup and would have tackle upside if Baker can't go.

The Cardinals have placed OLB Devon Kennard and CB Byron Murphy on the COVID list. That likely means both guys will be out for at least this week and probably another game beyond that. The absences shouldn't make a big impact on IDP lineups or the Arizona team defense. We'll see how soon they return.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday with what HC Kliff Kingsbury called a “lingering” ankle injury. It obviously adds risk to Hopkins’ profile, but he remains a strong fantasy play vs. Seattle’s league-worst WR defense.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is expected to play against the Seahawks tonight, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Hopkins only got in a limited practice on Friday. The only other time he was listed as questionable with this ankle issue this season was Week 4, when he ended up posting a 7-41 receiving line vs. the Panthers. Hopkins comes with elevated risk in Week 7 fantasy lineups but is virtually impossible to bench vs. Seattle's league-worst WR defense.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Hopkins’ ankle injury is “lingering” and that he’s “hopeful” he’ll be able to play vs. Seattle. We’re expecting Hopkins to suit up but will look for an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He missed all 3 practices before playing against the Panthers back in Week 4, although he didn't look like himself in that game, managing just 41 yards on 7 catches. We'll see if Hopkins practices tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the Eagles expect TE Zach Ertz to miss "about" 4-6 weeks. That extends the timeline beyond the initial 3-4 week projection. This makes Ertz droppable in many fantasy football leagues, especially considering the disappointing production before he went down. The dearth of healthy starters in Philadelphia's offense makes TE Richard Rodgers a viable PPR lineup option until Dallas Goedert returns.

The Eagles expect TE Zach Ertz to miss 3-4 weeks with the ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. TE Dallas Goedert is eligible to come off IR for Week 7, if his injured ankle is ready. If Goedert isn't ready, then Richard Rodgers would figure to operate as the lead TE for Thursday night's game against the Giants. Ertz can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues that don't have IR spots. He currently sits just 17th among TEs in PPR points, and Goedert should return before Ertz does, based on Mortensen's timeline.

Update: Adam Schefter adds that it's a high-ankle sprain for Ertz.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens with an ankle injury. We'll look for an update on the severity. TE Dallas Goedert (ankle) is eligible to come off IR next week, although it's unclear if he's ready.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be available for his usual role. That doesn’t make Green a recommended fantasy play, though. He hasn’t topped 51 yards all season.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He was deemed doubtful to return, so don't expect to see him back out there. Green had already been getting out-played by rookie WR Tee Higgins over the past couple of weeks.

Cardinals S Chris Banjo (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. That should leave Deionte Thompson starting in his place, next to returned starter Budda Baker. DL Jordan Phillips is active. He arrived questionable with an illness but is available as a lower-level IDP option.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (knee) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the knee shouldn’t be an issue.

Cardinals OLB Devon Kennard (calf) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. DT Jordan Phillips (illness) is questionable. He missed Thursday and Friday workouts. S Chris Banjo (hamstring) is also questionable. He missed Wednesday practice before limited workouts the next 2 days. We'll check on Phillips and Banjo when the inactives come out Sunday. Neither is worth waiting for in most IDP leagues, though. If Banjo is active, the Deionte Thompson won't be usable.

The Jets' positive COVID test turned out to be a false-positive, the team announced on Friday night. So the Cardinals-Jets game is on for Sunday. Your Cardinals are safe to keep in fantasy lineups. Hopefully you're not too invested in the Jets.

The Ravens list WR Marquise Brown (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he's clearly on track to play. But it's at least notable because it's the 1st time Brown is on the injury report this season. He's a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday. He was clearly bothered by that ankle last week, turning 9 targets into just 7 catches and 41 yards. Hopkins should be much closer to 100% for Sunday's plus matchup against the Jets. Start him, obviously.

Cardinals OLB Devon Kennard is inactive for today's game against the Panthers because of a calf injury. That could ding the Arizona pass rush a bit, but it should mean more snaps for veteran Haason Reddick in Kennard's place -- which might not ultimately be a downgrade.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He didn’t practice all week, so he clearly won’t be at 100% today. Still, you’d need to be awfully stacked at WR to bench Hopkins.

Cardinals’ WRs DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) and Christian Kirk (groin) are both expected to play against the Panthers today "if there are no pre-game setbacks," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Hopkins missed practice all week, while Kirk was limited after sitting out Week 3. An active Hopkins would be awfully tough to bench. We'd try to avoid Kirk in fantasy lineups after his slow start to the season.
