Arizona Cardinals Injury Updates

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson left Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a calf injury. It's not yet clear how serious the injury might be. We'll keep an eye on his situation throughout this week. Arizona slot CB Tramaine Brock missed Week 10 with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. That could leave the Cardinals without 2 of their top 3 cover guys for the Week 11 visit to San Francisco.

Cardinals OLB Terrell Suggs is active for today's game against the Bengals. He has been dealing with a back injury, which makes him a risky IDP play. There is upside for deep leagues, 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 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.

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.

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 LB Karlos Dansby is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after a hamstring injury limited his participation all week. We'd bet on Dansby playing, but we'll see about his status Sunday.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon recently had surgery to repair the ankle injury that landed him on IR in December. Bucannon played through the issue for much of the year, according to the team website, before missing the final 3 games. He hoped to be able to rehab the injury without surgery but finally had to go under the knife. “We think, if everything goes perfect, he’ll be ready,” HC Bruce Arians said, referring to the start of the regular season. “But there’s always that chance that it won’t.” We'll see this summer how perfectly everything works out. In the meantime, rookie Haason Reddick is expected to work in Bucannon's spot.

The Cardinals have placed DB Tyrann Mathieu on IR. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury for weeks and made his way slowly back from last December's double-ligament tear early in the year. We'll keep an eye on Mathieu this offseason for signs that he might return to his old effectiveness level. We rarely saw that from him, so his absence doesn't alter an already-dim outlook for the Arizona team defense in fantasy football for Week 16.

The Cardinals on Tuesday placed LB Deone Bucannon on IR with an ankle injury. The team website lists Sio Moore -- previously with the Colts and Chiefs -- as the next guy up at Bucannon's spot. Moore has showed the ability to post numbers, but this isn't the time of year to bet on unknown playing time, especially for a guy who has already been dumped by 2 other teams this season.

Cardinals DB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington, with the injury that already cost him a couple of games. His absence hurts the Arizona team D and helps the outlook for Washington slot WR Jamison Crowder -- who could also see his volume helped by TE Jordan Reed being out with a shoulder injury.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim told 98.7 FM in Phoenix that "there's a good chance" DB Tyrann Mathieu will be ready to play Sunday at Atlanta. Mathieu has missed the past 2 games with a shoulder injury.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He carries some re-injury risk, however, after he only managed a limited workout Friday following 2 days on the sideline. DB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is out for the 2nd straight game despite some optimism during the week that he'd be ready to play.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) and DB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Bucannon returned for a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Mathieu put in limited workouts all week after missing just the Week 10 game against the Niners (following an initial 3-4 week timetable on his injury). We'll check on the status for each player Sunday, though neither looks like a strong IDP option for Week 11 even if active.

Cardinals DB Tyrann Mathieu put in a limited practice Wednesday after missing Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. The Arizona Republic reports that it's not yet clear whether we can expect Mathieu to play in Week 11. IDP owners should look elsewhere even if he returns. LB Deone Bucannon missed Wednesday's workout with an ankle issue. We'll see about his status throughout the week. Bucannon didn't miss any snaps in the win over the Niners.
