Kenyan Drake Injury Updates | Shark Bites

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.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled him a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Eagles. We'll keep a close eye on Edmonds' status leading up to that one. His absence would mean more passing-game work for RB Kenyan Drake.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again on Friday, so expect him to be operating at less than 100% in this one.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) is expected to play against the Giants today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Drake was added to the injury report on Thursday, limited again on Friday and listed as questionable. Don't expect him to be at 100% today, but he remains in the RB2 mix.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We’ll find out whether Drake is active by noon ET on Sunday. If he’s out, Chase Edmonds would step in as Arizona’s lead back.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hip issue. We don't have any other details but should have a better idea of Drake's Week 14 status when the final injury report comes out tomorrow. Chase Edmonds would step in as Arizona's lead back if Drake misses Sunday's game vs. the Giants.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to play against the Bills this weekend. We'll see what he's able to do the next 2 days and how Arizona lists him on the final injury report.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) could be seen on the field for at least the early portion of Wednesday's practice. We'll see what the team's injury report says about his participation and watch that aspect through the week. Arizona gets a favorable rushing matchup with the Bills this Sunday.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled RB Kenyan Drake (ankle) "day to day" on Monday. Drake’s injury "looks more severe probably than it's gonna end up being hopefully," and he's made “good progress," Kingsbury said. He went on to say, though, that Drake is uncertain for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. Plan on Drake missing that one -- and Chase Edmonds serving as the feature back. We'll keep an eye on the situation this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is expected to miss "a few weeks" with a "slight tear of a ligament in his ankle." Arizona is reportedly treating it like a high-ankle sprain. If that's the case, we could see Drake miss 4+ weeks. The Cardinals have a Week 8 bye, but expect RB Chase Edmonds to get starts at least the next 2 weeks vs. the Dolphins and Bills. He figures to be a borderline RB1 for those contests.

X-rays on Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake's ankle came back negative, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Drake is scheduled for an MRI today to determine the extent of his injury. We should have a better idea of how much time he'll miss by the end of the day.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake left in the 4th quarter of Sunday night's game against the Seahawks with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity on Monday. Arizona gets a well-timed bye in Week 8.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake left Sunday's loss at Carolina early with what was deemed a chest injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, however, that Drake "just got the wind knocked out of him" and was already working out Monday morning with "no issues." So health should not be a factor in whether to keep Drake in Week 5 fantasy football lineups.

6:10pm EDT 10/4/20

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake appeared to suffer an injury late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Drake was able to get off the field under his own power before heading back to the locker room. HC Kliff Kingsbury had no update on Drake afterward. We'll look for one tomorrow. Chase Edmonds would step in as Arizona's lead back if Drake misses time.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. The foot issue that had him in a walking boot at the end of August obviously isn't a concern now. Drake is safe to get into Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said RB Kenyan Drake (foot) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) are "close" to returning to full practices. "We talked about all along we want to get them into game week and make sure they are comfortable with the game plan and then let them loose," Kingsbury said. "We know what we've got in them." We'll continue to keep an eye on both guys, but neither has moved down the rankings due to his injury.

Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake was out of his walking boot and jogging during Friday's practice, according to Kyle Odegard of the team's official site. We still don't have any details on Drake's injury. But HC Kliff Kingsbury hasn't sounded concerned, and Drake is obviously trending in the right direction. There's still elevated risk here -- but Drake's upside makes him worth the risk in the late 1st round or anywhere in the 2nd round of fantasy drafts. His ADP has sunk to 16th overall in best-ball drafts over the past few days.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds is expected to miss "a few weeks" with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Arizona has a Week 12 bye, so Week 13 seems like the most realistic return date for Edmonds. We'll see what the backfield looks like at that point with David Johnson rehabbing his ankle injury and Kenyan Drake now in the mix.

The Cardinals have agreed to send a conditional 2020 draft pick to the Dolphins in exchange for RB Kenyan Drake, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Arizona has lost RB David Johnson to an ankle injury and RB Chase Edmonds to a hamstring injury over the past couple of weeks. Both guys seem unlikely to be ready for Thursday night's game against the 49ers. Schefter confirms that Drake "could be in line for significant work" in that one. There's nice short-term opportunity here, so Drake is worth rostering in all fantasy leagues. But he figures to struggle for volume when Johnson and Edmonds get healthy.
