The Cardinals are activating S Budda Baker (hamstring) from IR and expect to play him Sunday against the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Barring some report to the contrary, Baker should be ready for IDP lineups this week. You won't find him high in our Week 7 DB rankings, though. And Seattle has supplied the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to DBs so far.

The Cardinals have ruled S Jalen Thompson (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. S Budda Baker -- who returned to limited practice this week after missing the past five games with a hamstring injury -- is questionable.

And the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff time likely means we won't know Baker's status before the early games begin. CB Kei'Trel Clark (hamstring) is also questionable after being limited in practice all week. We'll update the status on Baker and Clark ahead of Sunday's game.
