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.

The Cardinals have placed WR Christian Kirk on IR with a broken foot. It ends a promising rookie campaign that saw the 2nd-rounder haul in 61% of his targets and average 13.7 yards per catch in a mostly dysfunctional passing game. With WR Larry Fitzgerald getting no younger, Kirk should play an expanded role in 2019. And hopefully QB Josh Rosen takes a step forward. Foot injuries can be tricky to recover from, though, so we'll need to keep an eye on that this offseason.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (knee) is active for today’s game against the Packers. The team seemed to be patient with returning him to action, keeping him on the sideline last week despite limited practices. Baker should get back into most IDP lineups. Cardinals LB Haason Reddick (neck) is also active following a questionable tag. He’s a weak IDP option, though.

Cardinals S Budda Baker is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers with the knee injury that kept him out last week. Baker put in a full practice Friday, though, after limited workouts the 1st 2 days. We'd bet on him returning vs. Green Bay but will check on his status Sunday morning. We'll also check on the status of LB Haason Reddick, who is questionable with a neck injury. Reddick is a low-level IDP option at best.

The Cardinals have ruled S Budda Baker out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a knee injury. DT Robert Nkemdiche (calf) is questionable but missed practice Wednesday and Friday. Try not to use him even if he's active.

Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. Williams’ 3.9 targets per game figure to be spread to Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Ricky Seals-Jones.

Cardinals K Phil Dawson (hip) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Raiders. Arizona worked out Ks earlier this week but has yet to make a signing. Avoid this situation in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (foot) and S Tre Boston (chest) are active for today’s game against the Chiefs. Both belong in IDP lineups.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (foot) and S Tre Boston (chest) are questionable for Sunday's game at Kansas City. Baker showed up on the injury report Thursday, missing that day's workout, but returned for limited participation Friday. Boston put in limited workouts all week after missing the past 2 games. We'll check the status of both safeties Sunday morning.

Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. J.J. Nelson figures to step in as Arizona’s #3 WR behind Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk but isn’t a fantasy option.

2:10pm EDT 10/28/18

Cardinals K Phil Dawson (hip) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in Friday’s practice. We’d go with a healthier K in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

8:10am EDT 10/27/18

The Cardinals have ruled S Tre Boston out for the 2nd straight game. He's dealing with shoulder and rib injuries and didn't practice at all the past 2 weeks. We'll see how Boston's doing after the Week 9 bye.

Cardinals K Phil Dawson (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the 49ers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in Friday’s practice. Arizona signed K Matthew McCrane to its practice squad as insurance. Look elsewhere for your Week 8 fantasy K.

Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (forearm) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He appeared to suffer a serious injury in last Thursday night's game but will evidently be available for this weekend's game against the 49ers. Seals-Jones is just a TE2 in a struggling Arizona passing game.

The Cardinals have fired OC Mike McCoy, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. About 6 weeks too late. Arizona is averaging a pathetic 13.1 points and 221 total yards per game. McCoy's usage of RB David Johnson was particularly terrible. McCoy will be replaced by former QB Byron Leftwich, who's been with the Cardinals since the start of last season but has no play-calling experience. Don't expect drastic improvement from Arizona's offense -- but it can't get any worse.

Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones injured his right wrist attempting to recover a Josh Rosen fumble in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game. He immediately headed back to the locker room with a trainer. We'll update his status when we learn more.

The Cardinals have ruled S Tre Boston out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. Boston is dealing with shoulder and rib injuries and hasn't practiced this week. We'll see if Boston can make it back for a Week 8 meeting with the 49ers. If it's close at all, a Week 9 bye might factor into that decision.

Cardinals DE Markus Golden (knee) and DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) are active for today's game against the Vikings. Golden's not an IDP option yet, but Nkemdiche can be used in deeper leagues -- especially those with a DT-specific slot.

Cardinals DE Markus Golden (knee) and DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Each guy finished the week with limited practices and could be in for Week 6. We'll check on their statuses Sunday morning. Nkemdiche would be a lower-level IDP option if available. Golden still needs to show he's all the way back from last season's ACL tear before he returns to the IDP radar.
