The Cardinals have replaced LB Haason Reddick in base defense with Joe Walker, Cards Wire reports. “I think Joe Walker, right now, has earned the right to play the base downs and Haason, right now, is better at playing the sub downs.” Reddick had been delivering nice fantasy numbers for us, but he'll be useless as a sub-package player. Walker also won't carry much value if he's still sharing the position with Reddick.
Cardinals LB Haason Reddick is active for today's game against the Lions. He entered questionable with the knee that required arthroscopic surgery during camp. We'll see how many snaps Reddick plays, but the active status bodes well for his longer-term IDP outlook.
Cardinals ILB Haason Reddick is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Lions. Reddick suffered a knee injury at the beginning of training camp that required arthroscopic surgery. He returned to practice only this week for limited workouts. So even if Reddick is active Sunday, he doesn't seem a good bet for full playing time. Try to wait for another week for him.
The Cardinals drafted Temple LB Haason Reddick 13th overall in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. Reddick played DE almost exclusively in college but figures to play a standup rush role as a 3-4 OLB in Arizona. He'll likely cut well into OLB Markus Golden's playing time right away, but Golden -- along with re-signed OLB Chandler Jones -- will limit Reddick's early playing-time ceiling. Keep that in mind for his IDP outlook over the next couple of years. (Golden is signed through 2018.)
