Shark Bites

The Cardinals are re-signing QB Colt McCoy on a 2-year, $7.5 million deal, with $6 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McCoy saw 3 starts as Kyler Murray's backup in 2021.

Recent Shark Bites

Cardinals QB Colt McCoy had his concussion symptoms return Friday and will not play Sunday against the Falcons, HC Kliff Kingsbury told reporters. The team will instead turn to QB David Blough for the Week 17 start. The former Lions backup opened this season on the Vikings practice squad, but Arizona plucked him for its active roster on Dec. 14. The Cardinals now clearly believe him to be the better option than Trace McSorley. Blough won't be a meaningful fantasy option, and he's likely a downgrade vs. McCoy for Arizona pass-catchers -- if only because he hasn't been with the team as long. Of course, we'll also see about the status of WR DeAndre Hopkins, who is now dealing with knee trouble.

Cardinals QB Colt McCoy has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McCoy is no savior, of course. But he's a significant upgrade over QB Trace McSorley. McCoy's return is good news for RB James Conner and WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown.

The Cardinals ruled QB Colt McCoy (concussion) out for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. That leaves Trace McSorley under center for Arizona. McSorley started for 3 seasons at Penn State but completed just 59% of his passes. He went in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has gone 15-of-29 for 166 yards, 0 TDs and 3 INTs in 3 appearances for the Cardinals this season. There's nothing to suggest that McSorley is an NFL-calibre QB. Consider him a significant downgrade from McCoy.

Cardinals QB Colt McCoy suffered a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He's been replaced by QB Trace McSorley. We'll track McCoy's progress through the protocol this coming week.

FOX's Peter Schrager reports that QB Colt McCoy is expected to start Monday night against the 49ers. That would mean a 2nd straight missed game for QB Kyler Murray (hamstring). We're updating the Week 11 fantasy football rankings to reflect the QB change, though the QB switch shouldn't make a huge difference for the outlooks of Arizona pass-catchers.
