Position Listing
Dennis Gardeck
Gardeck (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Gardeck will play through his lingering foot injury for a second straight contest. He'll handle his usual reserve role in Arizona's linebacker corps versus Seattle.

Corey Peters
Peters accrued 38 tackles (19 solo), 6.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks in 16 games during the 2019 campaign.

Peters hasn't been known for significant output during his nine-year career, averaging 2.1 tackles per game and recording 17 sacks in 129 contests. No matter, he's on the heels of his most productive two-year stretch as a pro -- 88 tackles and five sacks in 31 outings -- and turns 32 years old in June. On the final year of his deal in 2020, Peters is incentivized to keep up the pace for one last big contract.

A.J. Richardson
The Cardinals signed Richardson to the practice squad Sunday, Tadd Haislop of reports.

Richardson wasn't able to make the team this offseason, so he's set to begin another season on the practice squad. The Cardinals boast a deep receiver room, so chances for Richardson to see action as an emergency option could be minimal in 2020.

Byron Murphy
Murphy compiled 78 tackles (66 solo), 10 pass defenses and one interception in 16 games during his rookie campaign.

A 2019 second-round pick, Murphy put up a healthy tackle total but mostly struggled in his first year as a pro. Specifically, he gave up a league-worst nine touchdown passes in coverage, which helped contribute to the Cardinals giving up the second most (38) in the NFL. Murphy thus received an unsightly 48.8 grade from Pro Football Focus. Because he ranked second on the team in defensive snap share (97.6 percent), he seemingly will be afforded every opportunity to prove Arizona's investment in him.

Illness - Reserve - COVID-19
Maxx Williams
Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Williams (ankle) will hopefully be able to return around Arizona's Week 8 bye, Kevin Zimmerman of reports.

The 26-year-old landed on injured reserve Sept. 21 with the ankle injury and is eligible to return for the Oct. 19 matchup at Dallas during Week 6, but it appears he may need a little more time to recover. Williams' return to practice will be a strong indicator of when he's nearing full health.

Ankle - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Max Garcia
Garcia signed a one-year contract with Arizona on Tuesday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Garcia spent the past season with the Cardinals, suiting up in seven games for the club. With eight interior linemen on the roster currently, the 28-year-old will likely have to battle this offseason to secure a roster spot.

DeAndre Hopkins
Hopkins (ankle) hauled in 10 of 12 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks on Sunday. He also lost a fumble in the 37-34 overtime victory.

Hopkins carried a questionable tag due to an ankle injury all the way up to kickoff, but the star wideout was able to suit up and deliver for fantasy owners. It was the the 28-year-old's third double-digit catch performance this season, and the fourth time he has reached the century mark in receiving yards. Hopkins made a seamless transition after being traded from Houston to Arizona, leading the league in receptions (57), targets (73) and receiving yards (704) through seven games. The only criticism -- if you can even call it one -- would be a lack of trips to the end zone, as he is on pace for just seven touchdowns in 2020. The Cardinals are on a bye next week, which should give Hopkins' ankle plenty of time to recuperate prior to facing the Dolphins in Week 9.

Jalen Thompson
Thompson (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to return from injured reserve, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Thompson hasn't played since Week 1 against the 49ers, but he's eligible to return to the lineup Monday against the Cowboys. If Chris Banjo (hamstring) is able to start alongside Budda Baker, Thompson won't have much of a role on defense should he shake off his injury.

Ankle - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Kenyan Drake
Drake is expected to miss "a few weeks" due to a slight tear of a ligament in his ankle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Schefter notes that the Cardinals are treating Drake's recovery timeframe similar to that of a high-ankle sprain, a hint that he could be a candidate for injured reserve. Drake was carted off the field during Sunday's overtime win against the Seahawks in serious pain. The Cardinals are scheduled for a bye Week 8, so Drake will at least have the benefit of extra time to get healthy, but it looks likely that Chase Edmonds will be called upon to lead the team's backfield versus Miami on Nov. 8.

Ankle - Out for Week 9 vs. Miami. Expected Return - Week 10
Isaiah Simmons
Simmons finished with a tackle and an interception in Sunday night's overtime victory over the Seahawks.

Simmons was only on the field for six percent of his team's defensive snaps, but he came through when it counted most, picking off Russell Wilson late in the overtime period. The rookie out of Clemson has recorded 12 tackles over his first seven NFL games.

Kevin Peterson
Peterson re-signed with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Peterson appeared in 14 games (three starts) and had 22 tackles (15 solo) and two passes defensed in 2019, and he'll return to the team after hitting free agency. The 26-year-old could fill a similar role next season since the Cardinals haven't made any significant additions to the secondary this offseason.

Michael Dogbe
No Updates
Daniel Wise
Wise recorded six tackles, including two sacks and a third tackle for a loss, in Thursday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

An undrafted rookie free agent out of Kansas, Wise has shown the ability to generate pressure and make stops when lined up either inside and outside, and his impressive performance this preseason has stood out -- especially in contrast to the struggles of second-round pick Trysten Hill. The Cowboys' defensive line group is very deep, but Wise has probably played too well to slip through waivers and make it to the practice squad, giving the team a tough decision to make when assembling its initial 53-man roster.

Eno Benjamin
Benjamin was inactive during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Panthers.

The Cardinals have leaned upon Kenyan Drake (67 attempts) and Chase Edmonds (16 attempts) for 100 percent of the team's RB carries this season, as Benjamin remains in search of his first NFL appearance. The seventh-round choice from this past April's draft was not afforded preseason play to exhibit his skills in game action, but he showed enough during training camp to enter 2020 as Arizona's third option at running back. Barring injury in front of him on the depth chart, however, it appears Benjamin is not in line for any significant work heading into a Week 5 matchup against the Jets' bottom-12 rush defense.

Chase Edmonds
Edmonds is in line to headline the Cardinals backfield with Kenyan Drake slated to miss "a few weeks" due to a high-ankle sprain, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.

With the help of Drake's departure in the fourth quarter of an eventual overtime win against the Seahawks on Sunday, Edmonds handled a season-high 61 percent of the Cards' offensive snaps en route to 12 touches for 145 yards. He reeled off a 32-yard run, a 21-yard catch-and-run and an 18-yard reception among his opportunities, which leaves him with a healthy 6.1 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per catch on the season. If Edmonds bumps up from his own 7.9 touches per game closer to Drake's 18.0 during the latter's absence, he'll be a must-start in the short term. Any reps that remain will be taken by 2020 seventh-rounder Eno Benjamin, undrafted rookie Jonathan Ward and potentially practice-squad RB D.J. Foster.

Dre Kirkpatrick
Kirkpatrick (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Kirkpatrick dealt with a foot injury during practice leading up to Sunday's game, but he'll be available against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. The veteran cornerback stands to handle his usual key role in Arizona's secondary.

Larry Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald hauled in all eight of his targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 37-34 win over Seattle.

Fitzgerald saw a season-high in targets and converted all of them into receptions. The future Hall of Famer has yet to score a touchdown in 2020, which limits his already low fantasy utility. At 37 years old, Fitzgerald is still a reliable run blocker and secure short-yardage receiver, which is far more valuable to the Cardinals than it is to fantasy managers in standard formats. Fitzgerald will return from Arizona's upcoming bye to face the Dolphins in Week 9.

Lamont Gaillard
Gaillard (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Gaillard dealt with a knee injury early in the season, but, as evidenced by this news, his absence won't be due to an injury. In his stead, Mason Cole and Max Garcia will handle the depth interior linemen duties for the contest.

Kyler Murray
Murray completed 34 of 48 pass attempts for 360 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while adding 14 carries for 67 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over Seattle.

Murray put the team on his back in a crucial NFC West showdown and outdueled early MVP candidate Russell Wilson on a national stage. The 2019 first-overall pick continues to make strides as a passer following a promising rookie campaign, posting a 66.9 completion percentage, 2,207 passing yards and a 13:7 TD:INT ratio. But what really sets Murray apart as a fantasy signal-caller has been his prowess with his legs. The 23-year-old has taken over the title as the league's top rushing quarterback from 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson, leading all quarterbacks with 71 rush attempts, 437 yards and seven rushing touchdowns through seven games. Fantasy owners will have to find a one-game replacement for Murray as the Cardinals are on a bye, but the dual-threat quarterback will be back in action against the Dolphins in Week 9.

Robert Alford
Alford (pectoral) was officially placed on the Cardinals' injured reserve Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It's been a rough couple years for Alford, as he also missed the entire 2019 season after fracturing his tibia during training camp. At 31 years old, he will have to really focus on his recovery and prepping for the 2021 season. There is now an open competition for who will start at cornerback next to Patrick Peterson and Byron Murphy in nickel packages.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Kelvin Beachum
Beachum (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Beachum logged a 'DNP/DNP/LP' slate of practices leading up to Sunday's contest, but he's nonetheless ready to suit up and draw his usual start at right tackle.

Angelo Blackson
Blackson will make $2.5 million in 2020 after restructuring his deal with the Texans on Saturday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This move freed up $1.5 million in cap space for the Texans. Blackson averaged 28.8 defensive snaps per game in 2019 and should push for a starting role in 2020, but he'll need to beat out Charles Omenihu and Carlos Watkins. At the very least, Blackson should play a rotational role.

Dan Arnold
Arnold notched two catches (on three targets) for 57 yards during Sunday's 37-34 overtime win against the Seahawks.

Fellow tight end Darrell Daniels started and led his position mates with a 51-percent share of the snaps on offense, but he also failed to haul in his only target. Meanwhile, Arnold received a 25-percent share and finally surpassed 50 yards receiving for the first time in seven appearances this season, thanks mainly to a 41-yard reception that represented the Cardinals' longest play from scrimmage on the night. Considering the uneven nature of his contributions to date, he's difficult to trust for production, but perhaps Sunday's performance will get him back in the good graces of coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray.

D.J. Foster
The Cardinals activated Foster (quadriceps) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster has been hurt for nearly a month, but he'll return to practice and continue working on the scout team. The Cardinals' active roster is set in the backfield, so Foster's chances of receiving a promotion are slim, barring an injury.

Josh Jones
Jones (ankle) has been activated for Sunday's matchup against Washington, per the Cardinals' official Twitter account.

The rookie third-round draft choice from Houston readies for his NFL debut, though he may only be utilized in a depth role to begin his career. Arizona's line performed admirably Week 1 against San Francisco's stacked pass rush, surrendering just two sacks and three QB hits to the 49ers without Jones in the lineup. If either D.J. Humphries or Kelvin Beachum suffers an injury against Washington, Jones may be inserted into the lineup as an emergency offensive tackle.

Jordan Phillips
Phillips (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Seattle.

Arizona will be shorthanded at defensive end for the rest of the night without both Phillips and Zach Allen (ankle). Angelo Blackson should take most of the snaps vacated by Phillips' absence. With Arizona on bye in Week 8, Phillips will have an extra week to recover before facing the Dolphins in Week 9.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Miami
Patrick Peterson
Peterson said he hasn't discussed an extension with the Cardinals, though he'd love to stay with one team for his entire career, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Peterson will turn 30 in July, entering the final season of a five-year, $70 million extension. He opened 2019 with a six-game suspension and didn't play up to his usual standard upon first rejoining the lineup, but he then closed out the year with five pass defenses and an interception over the final three weeks. Cardinals GM Steve Keim suggested in February that the team prefers to keep Peterson around beyond 2020.

Mike Nugent
Arizona signed Nugent to the practice squad Friday.

Nugent appeared in four contests with the Patriots last season, a span in which he converted five of eight field-goal tries with two misses from inside the 40-yard line. He'll now serve as an emergency option behind Zane Gonzalez for the Cardinals.

Prince Amukamara
The Cardinals signed Amukamara to the practice squad Tuesday.

Amukamara failed to make the final roster in Las Vegas during training camp after starting for the Bears over the last three seasons and racking up 29 pass breakups and three interceptions. He's finally found a new team after visiting with the Cardinals last week. The Cardinals' secondary has actually been decent, allowing 222.4 passing yards per game -- the fifth-best rate in the league. Nevertheless, Amukamara should have a chance to climb the depth chart in Arizona.

Trevon Coley
Coley signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Coley suited up in seven games for the Colts last season, collecting seven tackles (six solo) across just 68 defensive snaps. The 25-year-old will fill a depth role along Arizona's defensive line.

D.J. Humphries
Humphries (back) is active for Monday's game versus the Cowboys.

Humphries was limited during Saturday's practice but is fine and will start at left tackle for this primetime showdown.

Carson Palmer
Palmer announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

One day removed from head coach Bruce Arians making the same announcement, Palmer will head into the sunset after 15 seasons with three different teams. After waiting one year to get his first shot with the Bengals in 2004, the previous year's No. 1 overall pick spent seven years with the organization as the starting quarterback. A dispute with ownership in 2011 eventually resulted in a trade to the Raiders, where he suited up the next two campaigns. To wrap up his career, Palmer landed in the Arizona desert in April of 2013 and spurred one of the most successful runs in the history of the Cardinals in that state, accumulating a 38-21-1 record as a starter. His injuries woes emerged at inopportune times, though, as he was only available for one of the team's two playoff runs. In 182 regular-season games played, Palmer averaged 254.1 yards per contest, completed 62.5 percent of his passes and accrued 294 touchdowns versus 187 interceptions for an 87.9 quarterback rating.

Darrell Daniels
Daniels didn't reel in his only target during Sunday's 37-34 overtime victory against the Seahawks.

Daniels was in the starting lineup and paced all Cardinals tight ends with 42 of 84 offensive snaps, but the usage didn't result in any production. Meanwhile, fellow TE Dan Arnold played 21 such plays and turned them into two catches (on three targets) for 57 yards, including a team-leading 41-yard catch-and-run. Considering Daniels has received at least half of the snaps on offense in five of the last six games, his standing as the top option at the position in Arizona doesn't seem to be in doubt. That said, Arnold is the preferred fantasy option due to his utility as a receiver.

Koda Martin
Martin was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

Martin joined a host of other players waived as the Chargers cut their roster down to 80 members. The undrafted rookie was waived his rookie season after suffering an undisclosed injury, and he likely wasn't going to be a prominent member of the team's depth group.

Christian Kirk
Kirk had five receptions (eight targets) for 37 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Seahawks.

Kirk shined in the national spotlight for the second consecutive game, hitting pay dirt twice after pulling off the same feat on Monday Night Football against the Cowboys last week. The recent explosion of touchdowns for the third-year man came out of left field, as he averaged just three scores each of his previous two seasons. Kirk -- a 5'11" slot receiver -- doesn't scream "red-zone target," but fantasy managers certainly won't scoff at his recent binge. Expectations for future production should be tempered in the event the wideout isn't able to maintain this rate of success in the red zone, as he is averaging just 3.0 receptions and 46.2 yards per game this season. However, until the scoring cools off, Kirk remains a solid fantasy option when the Cardinals resume play against the Dolphins following the team's upcoming bye week.

Joshua Miles
Miles (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Miles practiced in full Friday despite his illness, so his availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. The rookie seventh-round pick will play his usual depth role along Arizona's offensive line.

Zach Allen
The Cardinals placed Allen (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The Cardinals believe Allen has a chance to return after a minimum three-week stint on IR, which would mean he could play Week 11 against the Seahawks -- a Thursday night contest. The 2019 third-round pick has started two games this year and maintains a consistent role on the team's defense, but until he returns to action, Leki Fotu, Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Angelo Blackson should handle expanded roles.

Ankle - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 11
Brett Hundley
Hundley signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Hundley operated as the team's backup behind Kyler Murray in 2019, seeing most of his action Week 16 when Murray exited with a hamstring injury. Overall, the 26-year-old completed five of 11 passes for 49 yards and rushed seven times for 41 yards in three appearances. Hundley will likely be the No. 2 QB again for the 2020 campaign.

Leki Fotu
No Updates
Jordan Thomas
Thomas had a three-yard touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 defeat in Carolina.

Thomas took full advantage of his only snap on offense, kicking off the Cardinals' scoring in the middle of the second quarter. As merely the third tight end behind Dan Arnold and Darrell Daniels as long as Maxx Williams (ankle) is sidelined, Thomas has just two offensive snaps to his name in three appearances, so it's difficult to project any sort of value for the 24-year-old.

Andy Isabella
Isabella hauled in one of three targets for seven yards during Sunday's 37-34 overtime win versus the Seahawks.

Despite matching his season high with 50 percent of the snaps on offense Sunday, Isabella continued his vexing week-to-week output, and he's now in the midst of a two-game span in which he failed to catch two deep shots Week 6 and was the target on Kyler Murray's sole interception this past Sunday. Aside from a 54-yard catch and two others greater than 20 yards this season, Isabella has totaled 44 yards from scrimmage on his nine other touches, making him tough to consider as even a fill-in option.

Zeke Turner
Turner (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Saints, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Turner has been sidelined since Week 3 due to a hamstring injury. He looks to be a true game-time decision this time around, as he was able to log limited practices all week. Final confirmation on his status should come closer to kickoff.

De'Vondre Campbell
Campbell collected eight solo tackles and one assist during Sunday's 30-10 win against the Jets.

With another strong showing on the stat sheet Week 5, Campbell now has nine-plus tackles in three of his past four outings. Campbell was a tackling machine during his final campaign as a Falcon also, recording 19 more tackles than any other player on the team last year. Arizona's Week 6 opponent, Dallas, will be without starting quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) for the remainder of the season, leaving veteran Andy Dalton in control of the Cowboys' No. 3 scoring offense.

Rashard Lawrence
The Cardinals placed Lawrence (calf) on injured reserve Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Lawrence was already ruled out for this Monday's game versus the Cowboys, and now he won't be eligible to return until Week 9 against the Bills. However, the rookie fourth-rounder doesn't have a clear timeline to return. Corey Peters will continue starting at nose tackle, and Angelo Blackson or Leki Fotu may need to slide over from defensive end to add depth behind Peters.

Calf - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Chandler Jones
The Cardinals placed Jones (biceps) on injured reserve Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Jones is slated to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to address his biceps injury, so his shift to IR is simply a formality that opens up an additional roster spot for Arizona. The veteran edge rusher is reportedly on track to return in time for OTAs.

Biceps - Injured Reserve
Khalfani Muhammad
Muhammad signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The 26-year-old was waived by the Broncos over the summer but will now provide backfield depth for the Cardinals with Kenyan Drake (ankle) sidelined. Muhammad has spent time on Tennessee's and Denver's practice squads and is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Andy Lee
Lee (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Lee has been nursing a hip injury since late September, but he'll now manage to suit up for a third consecutive contest. He'll handle punting duties and hold on field goals. as per usual.

Aaron Brewer
The Cardinals signed Brewer to a four-year, $4.15 million contract extension Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of reports. The deal includes $620,000 guaranteed.

Brewer missed most of last season with the broken wrist he sustained in early October, but the Cardinals deemed the long snapper important enough to justify designating him as one of their two players to return from injured reserve. He took back long-snapping duties for the club's final three contests and will now have some job security heading into 2018 after agreeing to the extension.

Trent Sherfield
Sherfield logged one snap on offense and 15 plays on special teams during Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

With just one six-yard catch on the season, Sherfield holds little sway in the fantasy realm in a receiving corps composed of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald and Andy Isabella. Still, Sherfield's prowess on kick and punt coverage allows him to be a regular on the game-day roster.

Jordan Hicks
Hicks left Sunday's game against the Seahawks during the fourth quarter due to an ankle injury, Mason Kern of Sports Illustrated reports.

While the extent of Hicks' injury was previously unclear, it has been confirmed by multiple sources that it was Hicks' ankle that was injured. In the event that Hicks is out after the Cardinals' Week 8 bye, Isaiah Simmons and Tanner Vallejo could slot in for additional snaps.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Miami
KeeSean Johnson
Johnson was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 37-34 overtime victory versus the Seahawks.

In a game in which the Cardinals had four wide receivers with at least a 50-percent share of the snaps on offense, Johnson's DNP tells much about his standing in the receiving corps. All of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald and Andy Isabella met the aforementioned playing criteria, while Trent Sherfield remained busy on special teams Sunday. As a result, Johnson is a fantasy non-entity at the moment.

Budda Baker
Baker had 14 tackles (11 solo) and one interception during Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

The 24-year-old intercepted Russell Wilson at the two-yard line and appeared to have a pick-six locked up, but DK Metcalf showed off his speed and chased the safety down after a 90-yard return. Baker reached double-digit tackles for the third time this season and has 59 total tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble through six games.

Chris Streveler
Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Streveler is the Cardinals' backup quarterback, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Streveler has logged just one offensive play since initially entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2018, but he's gained valuable experience with the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers the last two seasons and has done enough since the start of training camp to beat out Brett Hundley for the No. 2 job behind Kyler Murray.

Isaiah Irving
Irving (back) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The 26-year-old was carted off the field after suffering the neck injury during Sunday's win over the Seahawks and isn't expected to see the field again this season. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Irving should be considered out indefinitely.

Back - Injured Reserve
Rick Leonard
Leonard signed a reserve/future contract with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Leonard was selected by the Saints in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, though he ultimately failed to make the 53-man roster. He spent the rest of the season on Arizona's practice squad.

Mason Cole
Cole (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Cole hadn't suit up yet this season while he tended to a hamstring injury, so he'll make his 2020 debut. With the Michigan product healthy, he's expected to draw the start at center for Week 4.

JoJo Ward
The Cardinals signed Ward to the practice squad Sunday, Tadd Haislop of reports.

Ward spent the offseason in Arizona after being passed over in April's draft, but he wasn't able to earn a roster spot within the team's deep receiver room. The Hawaii product will join fellow wideouts Andre Patton and A.J. Richardson on the practice squad.

Kylie Fitts
Fitts (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional matchup against Seattle.

Fitts was limited in practice all week, so it never appeared as though his availability for Sunday Night Football was in serious jeopardy. He stands to start at outside linebacker versus Seattle.

Reggie Walker
No Updates
Devon Kennard
Kennard (calf) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Kennard has missed the last two games, but after logging three straight limited practice sessions, he has a shot to return to the lineup Monday. If he's able to go, the 29-year-old is expected to start at outside linebacker, where he's produced seven tackles and two sacks through the first two games. His pass-rushing ability will be even more important with Chandler Jones (biceps) out for the year.

Illness - Reserve - COVID-19
Thurston Armbrister
The Cardinals released Armbrister on Wednesday.

Armbrister joined the Cardinals last November but only appeared in one regular-season game with the team before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring issue. He'll now get a head start on finding a new team ahead of the 2019 campaign.

Justin Murray
The Cardinals signed Murray to a two-year contract extension worth a maximum of $9 million Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Murray started 12 games for Arizona in 2019, but he normally contributes as a reserve lineman. He's now under contract with the team through 2022.

Charles Washington
Washington signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Despite battling a shoulder injury, Washington suited up in 12 games for the Cardinals in 2019, making seven tackles (six solo). The 27-year-old played all 211 snaps exclusively on special teams last season, and he's expected to perform a similar role in 2020 should he make the roster.

Tanner Vallejo
Vallejo (ribs) will suit up in Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Vallejo will return to the lineup after he was limited throughout the week with the rib issue. Now healthy, he's expected to handle depth duties and do most of his work on special teams for Week 4.

Deionte Thompson
Thompson finished with nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Thompson played in 77 percent of his team's defensive snaps in Week 4, logging 59 snaps. His playing time continues to trend upward, and he made the most of his opportunities Sunday by recording a season-best nine tackles.

Evan Weaver
Weaver was waived by the Cardinals on Saturday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Weaver's collegiate production was impressive, but a bevy of offseason moves designed to improve the Cardinals' porous linebacking corps made the likelihood of the rookie sixth-round pick making the roster rather remote. Expect Weaver to transition to the team's practice squad should he pass through waivers.

Reggie Gilbert
Gilbert was waived by the Titans on Tuesday, according to the NFL's transaction log.

Gilbert was placed on injured reserve in early August due to an undisclosed injury, but he was waived without an injury settlement Tuesday. He's thus free to sign on with another club.

Jonathan Ward
The Cardinals signed Ward off their practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Ward was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster both of the Cardinals' last two games, only for him to revert back to the practice squad afterward. Teams can only exercise this right two times with players, so Arizona is bringing Ward up to the active roster to serve as a regular on special teams. When it comes to offense, Ward likely needs an injury to one of Kenyan Drake or Chase Edmonds to get on the field otherwise.

Justin Pugh
Pugh (back) will play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Pugh has been battling the back issue for a few weeks now but has yet to miss game time. He's expected to draw the start at left guard for the game now that he's officially healthy.

J.R. Sweezy
The Cardinals placed Sweezy (elbow) on injured reserve Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Justin Murray will start at right guard until Sweezy can return to the lineup, which will be Week 9 against the Bills at the earliest.

Elbow - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Haason Reddick
Reddick had 11 tackles (five solo) and one sack during Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

It was an impressive performance from the 26-year-old, as he more than doubled his previous season high for tackles while totaling three tackles for loss and three quarterback hits. Reddick also recorded his fifth sack of the season, setting a career high despite being only seven games into the year.

Rees Odhiambo
Odhiambo (chest) reverted to the Cardinals' injured reserve Wednesday per the NFL's official transaction log.

Odhiambo was waived/injured by the team but ultimately went unclaimed. He is now set to spend the season on the sidelines unless both parties reach an injury settlement.

Chest - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Miami
Jace Whittaker
No Updates
Chris Banjo
Banjo (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Banjo's hamstring injury caused him to miss two consecutive games, but he now looks fully on track for Monday's contest in Dallas. Barring any setbacks, he stands to draw his usual start at safety across from Budda Baker.

Zane Gonzalez
Gonzalez made three of four field goals and all four extra points in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win against the Seahawks.

Gonzalez was busy Sunday night, but he made a pair of clutch kicks that could be defining moments for Arizona's season. The fourth-year kicker connected on a 44-yard field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime. He had a chance to win the game with 2:47 remaining in the extra frame, but he sent a 41-yarder wide left, setting the Seahawks up with good field position. However, Russell Wilson tossed an interception, and Gonzalez was afforded a chance to make up for his misfire. He came through, knocking home a 48-yarder to hand the Seahawks their first loss of the season and provide the Cardinals a competitive 5-2 record. Gonzalez will get a week off before facing the Dolphins in Week 9.

Josh Mauro
Mauro signed a contract with the Cardinals on Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The 29-year-old was suspended for the first five games of the season, but he was let go by the Jaguars last week before appearing in a game. He then signed with Jacksonville's practice squad. Mauro provides depth on the defensive line with Zach Allen (ankle) moved to injured reserve and Jordan Phillips (hamstring) also less than 100 percent.
