Antonio Cromartie (ankle) will play in Thursday night's Week 15 game against the Rams.

It's great news after there was some initial fear when Cromartie went down in Week 14. How the Cardinals will use Patrick Peterson and Cromartie is unclear, but there's a good chance Peterson sees mostly Kenny Britt while Cromartie deals with Stedman Bailey. It's not expected to be a high-scoring game.
Dec 11 - 10:55 AM

Antonio Cromartie (ankle) is day to day, and has yet to be ruled out for Thursday's game against the Rams.

We highly doubt Cromartie will give it a go on only three days' rest, but the news has gotten much more positive since it initially appeared Cromartie had an Achilles' issue. If Cro sits for Week 15, he should be ready for Week 16.
Dec 8 - 2:32 PM

GM Steve Keim said Antonio Cromartie is believed to have injured a peroneal tendon in his ankle during Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

It's far better than an Achilles' injury it appeared to be at first. Still, Cromartie's status is completely up in the air for Week 15, yet another blow to a team completely ravaged by injury. Cromartie has earned a top-14 grade among corners in coverage from PFF this season.
Dec 8 - 10:16 AM

Updating a previous item, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Antonio Cromartie's injury is not an Achilles injury.

Cromartie was quickly carted to the locker room after a non-contact injury in the fourth quarter. Even if the initial diagnosis of an Achilles is incorrect, the Cardinals' response to the injury suggests it is severe. Cromartie is highly questionable for the Cardinals' Thursday night matchup with the Rams.
Dec 7 - 7:31 PM

Antonio Cromartie exited Week 14 against the Chiefs with an Achilles injury.

Cromartie fell to the ground after planting hard on his left leg in the fourth quarter. He could not put any pressure on his left leg after suffering the injury and was quickly carted back into the locker room. Cromartie is officially questionable to return, but he is likely done for the day.
Dec 7 - 6:47 PM

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie (bone bruise in knee) is considered day to day, and likely to suit up against the Broncos for Week 5.

The Cardinals' bye came at the right time for Cromartie. Cromartie's play has improved on his dismal 2013, and his presence opposite Patrick Peterson will be very important as the Cardinals look to slow down Peyton Manning next week.
Sep 22 - 3:24 PM

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie has been diagnosed with a hyperextended knee and bone bruise.

It's a tough injury, but at least Cromartie avoided any ligament tears. Jerraud Powers will be forced to step in opposite Patrick Peterson, and opponents will continue to attack the Cardinals through the air rather than on the ground.
Sep 22 - 12:55 PM

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie suffered a left-knee injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers, and will undergo an MRI.

Cromartie didn't appear labored as he walked to the locker room, but it's a knee he's had operated on in the past. Jerraud Powers finished the game opposite Patrick Peterson. Cromartie has been playing well after his lost 2013 with the Jets. His loss would be big.
Sep 21 - 8:23 PM

Antonio Cromartie claims to have ran a 4.36 forty during an offseason workout.

It's obviously not an official time, but Cromartie looks fully healthy after playing through a hip injury in 2013. The Cardinals are counting on a bounce back year from Cromartie, giving him a one-year, $3.25 million deal to bookend shadow CB Patrick Peterson. Cromartie was clocked at 4.47 during the 2006 Combine.

Antonio Cromartie showed no signs of his 2013 hip injury during OTAs and minicamp.

Cromartie was one of the best corners in the league in 2012, and one of the worst in 2013. The Cardinals are hoping that sharp decline was due to a hip injury first sustained way back in 2008, and aggravated last season. If Cromartie is right, he'll form a very nice bookend with Patrick Peterson.
Jun 18 - 8:29 AM

Cardinals agreed to terms with CB Antonio Cromartie on a one-year contract.

Rex Ryan's head is going to explode. He wanted Darrelle Revis back, then he wanted Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and then he wanted Cromartie. Instead, slow-moving GM John Idzik ends up with none of them and leaves the Jets very thin at corner. In Arizona, Cromartie can be penciled in opposite Patrick Peterson. If last year's woeful performance by Cro was a result of a hip injury and not steep decline, it will be an imposing duo.
Mar 20 - 12:46 PM

The New York Post reports the Jets "aren't being very aggressive" in trying to re-sign free agent CB Antonio Cromartie.

Cromartie wants to return and play for Rex Ryan, but he isn't going to play for peanuts. We'd guess he'd take a deal similar to Cortland Finnegan's with the Dolphins -- two years and $11 million. But GM John Idzik seems hellbent on playing it slow and letting the market come to him. It's already cost the Jets Vontae Davis and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Cromartie has drawn interest from the Cardinals. Aside from them, his market has been quiet.
Mar 18 - 3:08 PM

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports free agent Antonio Cromartie "wants to return" to the Jets.

This isn't really a secret, as Cromartie made it clear late last season that he wants to retire a Jet. It's just unclear whether the feeling is mutual. The Jets are "still interested" in free agent Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and aren't known to be pursuing Cromartie. Cromartie turns 30 next month.
Mar 16 - 5:17 PM

Free agent CB Antonio Cromartie is visiting the Cardinals on Thursday.

Jerraud Powers started opposite Patrick Peterson last season, but isn't guaranteed to keep his roster spot. Neither Powers nor Cromartie were very good in 2013, but Cro has the longer track record. He's nearly three years older than Powers, however. Cro is going to have to be open to one-year offers with low base salaries.
