Shark Bites

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.

Cardinals DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) and DE Markus Golden (knee) are inactive for today's game against the 49ers. That hurts the team defense but doesn't remove the fantasy upside from the matchup.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring, back) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He’s not close to 100% right now and is shaky WR3.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's officially questionable with the hamstring injury but has played through the issue for multiple games.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring, back) is listed as questionable for Week 5 after putting in just 2 limited practices this week. He'll play against the Cardinals on Sunday but isn't anywhere close to 100%. Fitzgerald is a shaky WR3 right now.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Fitz is “nowhere near 100%.” He’s a shaky fantasy play coming off a Week 3 dud.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is “nowhere near 100 percent." He's still expected to play against the Seahawks today but looks like a shaky fantasy starter. Fitz played 96% of the offensive snaps last week but mustered just 2 catches for 9 scoreless yards.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 4 after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He went through the same routine last week before playing 96% of the snaps against the Bears. He'll play on Sunday vs. Seattle, but Arizona's offensive woes have reduced Fitz to WR3 status.

Cardinals HC Steve Wilks named QB Josh Rosen his new starter on Monday. The rookie entered late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bears, completing 4 of 7 passes for 36 yards and an INT. He can't be worse than Sam Bradford, though, who's averaged 5.0 yards per attempt with 2 TDs and 4 INTs through 3 weeks. That said, with a leaky offensive line, thin weaponry and questionable play-calling, Rosen isn't a fantasy option right now.

Cardinals QB Sam Bradford was benched late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He got off to a good start in this one with a pair of TDs in the 1st quarter but got nothing done after that. Rookie QB Josh Rosen made his NFL debut with a chance to help the Cardinals to a comeback win but went just 4 of 7 for 36 yards and an INT. Arizona figures to stick with Rosen going forward, but he's not a fantasy option at this point.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He’s just a WR3 at less than 100% and in a struggling Arizona offense.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) will play against the Bears today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms. HC Steve Wilks said all week that Fitz would play, and he put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. But between the hamstring and Arizona's moribund offense, Fitzgerald has been reduced to a WR3.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bears. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and HC Steve Wilks has said all week that Fitz will play. Expect him to be out there, but Arizona’s offensive struggles have downgraded Fitzgerald to more of a WR3.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Steve Wilks said afterward that Fitz will play against the Bears this weekend. He's been relegated to low-end WR2 status with the Cardinals offense struggling mightily.

Cardinals HC Steve Wilks expects WR Larry Fitzgerald to play against the Bears on Sunday. Fitz exited last weekend's loss to the Rams with a hamstring issue -- but it sounds like that was at least partly due to the fact that the game had been decided. “We all now that it’s going to be tough to keep Larry off the field," Wilks said Monday. Fitzgerald has missed just 2 games over the previous 10 seasons. We'll monitor his practice participation this week.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald injured his hamstring in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Rams. He's officially questionable to return, but don't expect to see him back out there with Arizona down by 27. We'll look for an update on the severity of the injury. Fitz missed just 2 games over the previous 10 seasons.
