Cardinals QB Kyler Murray injured his right ankle early in Sunday's game against the Rams. It's unclear if this is the same injury that had him on this week's injury report. Murray headed back to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.

Update: Murray re-entered in the 4th quarter, with Arizona down 18-7.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is active for today’s game against the Rams. It’s unclear how big a role he’ll be able to play, making him a shaky fantasy option.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Rams. With WR Christian Kirk on the COVID list, Arizona is down to WRs DeAndre Hopkins, KeeSean Johnson and Andy Isabella.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (neck) is active for today's game against the Rams. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

There's "optimism" Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) will be able to play vs. the Rams today, although he remains a game-time decision, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Edmonds has been playing through injuries for a few weeks now. He can't be trusted in Week 17 fantasy lineups, but his presence would continue to cap RB Kenyan Drake's upside.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals are "not optimistic" that WR Larry Fitzgerald will play today against the Rams. With Christian Kirk already on the COVID list, that would likely elevate Andy Isabella to the #3 WR spot behind DeAndre Hopkins and KeeSean Johnson. Isabella has been a healthy scratch the past 3 weeks. Arizona already gets a tough matchup vs. the Rams defense. Losing 2 of his normal top 3 WRs certainly doesn't help QB Kyler Murray.

The Cardinals on Saturday placed WR Christian Kirk on the COVID list. That knocks him out for Sunday's game against the Rams and should leave Larry Fitzgerald and KeeSean Johnson as Arizona's 2nd and 3rd wideouts for the regular-season finale. Andy Isabella might also finally make it off the inactive list. We'll see about Kirk's availability for the playoff opener, if Arizona makes it.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. HC Kliff Kingsbury said he’ll be a game-time decision. Edmonds’ absence would be a boost to RB Kenyan Drake’s projected volume.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (leg) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. There’s still a chance his rushing is limited this weekend, and the passing matchup is a tough one vs. the Rams. It leaves Murray as a lower-end QB1 for Week 17.

Cardinals S Budda Baker (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Baker sustained the injury in Thursday's practice and then was not seen during the open portion of Friday's workout. HC Kliff Kingsbury told reporters that Baker is "a little sore" but that the team is "hopeful that he will be able to go." We'll see about his status Sunday afternoon. With a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, though, we might not know before the early games begin.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (leg) said Wednesday that he's "good" and expects to play vs. the Rams this weekend. We still don't have any details on his leg injury, but there's a chance it'll limit his rushing ability. And the passing matchup is brutal, leaving Murray as just a borderline QB1 for Week 17.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's status for Sunday's finale against the Rams is "uncertain" because of the lower-leg injury he sustained late in Saturday's loss to the 49ers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. If Murray can't go, Chris Streveler would start for Arizona in a game with playoff ramifications for both teams. We'll be watching Murray's status throughout the week.

Update: Arizona HC Kliff Kingsbury said he's "hopeful" Murray will play, according to Kyle Odegard of the team website.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray suffered a leg injury late in Saturday night's loss to the 49ers. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it "doesn't seem serious." We'll keep an eye on Murray's status leading up to next weekend's game vs. the Rams. Arizona needs to win that one to have a shot at the playoffs, so Murray will be out there if able.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds suffered a hip injury in the 1st half of Saturday's game vs. the 49ers and is officially questionable to return. He entered this one with ankle and knee injuries. We'll pass along an update on Edmonds when we get one.

Update: Edmonds has been ruled out.

Cardinals OLB Haason Reddick (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He entered the day questionable but out in a pair of limited practices and played 80 snaps in last week’s win over the Eagles. Reddick has delivered 6 sacks and forced 5 fumbles over the past 2 games. He’s probably worth rolling with in IDP leagues where you’re considering him

Cardinals LB Haason Reddick (shoulder) and CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring, calf) are questionable for Saturday's game against the 49ers. Reddick missed Tuesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the next 2 days. Kirkpatrick missed all 3 days of practice and doesn't appear worth trusting even if he's active.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle, knee) got in just 1 limited practice this week and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the 49ers. He was in the same boat last week -- and then went out and led Arizona RBs with a 53% snap rate, 11 carries and 5 targets. We'll get Edmonds' game status around 3 pm ET on Saturday.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday this week and might have his role scaled back today. Edmonds shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is expected to play against the Eagles today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He may have a reduced role, though, depending on how he feels," Rapoport adds. Edmonds was a fringe fantasy option at less than 100% and shouldn't be in lineups now. It sounds like RB Kenyan Drake might be in for a few extra touches.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, and HC Kliff Kingsbury said earlier in the week that Edmonds would be a game-time decision. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups at less than 100%. Edmonds' absence would be a boost to RB Kenyan Drake's target projection.
