Cardinals TE Jeff King will undergo knee surgery Friday.

King, 30, has been experiencing swelling in his knee of late. He underwent a scope on the knee in the offseason, but he likely needs another clean-out procedure. The blocking tight end will be sidelined for about a month.

Cardinals TE Jeff King is recovering from knee surgery, but could be ready to resume practicing by early June.

The blocking tight end is sitting out OTAs, but sounds like he'll be ready for training camp. He's likely recovering from a scope. A seven-year veteran, King graded out as the third-worst tight end in the league in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season.

Cardinals activated TE Jeff King (quadriceps surgery) from the active/PUP list.

King slides back in as the Cardinals' blocking tight end. Todd Heap and intriguing prospect Rob Housler will handle pass-catching duties at the position.

Cardinals TE Jeff King (quadriceps surgery) is expected to be ready "at some point" during training camp.

TEs coach Freddie Kitchens suggested the Cardinals will utilize more two-tight end sets this season. King will be the blocking specialist used in tandem with Todd Heap and breakout candidate Rob Housler, who "needs to play," according to Kitchens.

Updating a previous item, Cardinals TE Jeff King's right leg injury is a partially torn quadriceps tendon suffered in offseason workouts.

The injury did require surgery, though coach Ken Whisenhunt expects King to be ready for training camp. Whether or not he's back to 100 percent by August remains to be seen.
Tue, May 22, 2012 03:42:00 PM

Cardinals TE Jeff King was spotted in crutches and with a brace on his right leg Tuesday.

No other details are known, but it would appear King is dealing with a fairly significant injury. King saw heavy snaps while Todd Heap battled a hamstring injury last season, notching 27 catches for 271 yards. King will compete with 2011 third-rounder Rob Housler to be Heap's backup if healthy.

Cardinals TE Jeff King caught four passes for 26 yards in fill-in duty for injured Todd Heap (hamstring) on Sunday.

Backup Rob Housler (groin) was also out, and even if both of them miss next week's game King isn't on the fantasy radar.

With Todd Heap (hamstring) officially listed as questionable, Arizona TE Jeff King is expected to be inserted into the Cardinals starting lineup.

King is one of three possible tight ends who could see playing time if Heap is unable to dress, including Rob Housler and Jim Dray but none are recommended fantasy options. The Steelers are allowing an average of seven points per game to opposing tight ends.
Sun, Oct 23, 2011 08:30:00 AM

Jeff King caught five passes for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

With Todd Heap out and the Cardinals trailing by three-plus scores for virtually the entire game, King got involved. Normally, he'll just be a blocker.
Sun, Oct 9, 2011 06:28:00 PM

Jeff King caught two passes for 36 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

King showed some nifty moves on a 21-yard first quarter touchdown catch, but he's not a true part of the offense. He saw just two targets and is more of an emergency outlet on most pass plays. King's best asset is his blocking.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 05:53:00 PM

Jeff King had two catches for 61 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

King's touchdown came on a completely blown coverage during which MLB Jon Beason went down injured. King is merely a blocker and this stands to be the most receiving yards he posts all season.
Sun, Sep 11, 2011 08:20:00 PM

Cardinals agreed to terms with TE Jeff King on a three-year contract.

King won't have fantasy value, as he's expected to fill the blocking role alongside rookie "Joker" tight end Rob Housler. The Arizona Republic conceded that the Cardinals could have interest in Todd Heap, but he's not expected to be a priority. We doubt Arizona would have added King if Heap was also on their radar.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 09:36:00 PM

Pro Football Weekly has spoken with a Panthers team source that says keeping free agent TE Jeff King will not be a priority.

Hardly a surprise, as even though King has proven to be a solid blocker during his five seasons in Carolina, he has provided very little in the passing game since catching 46 balls in 2007. Brittle and aging Jeremy Shockey will be the Panthers' starting Week 1 tight end.
Sat, Jul 16, 2011 04:55:00 PM

New coach Ron Rivera suggested the Panthers will target a do-it-all tight end in free agency or the draft this offseason.

Rivera noted that Jeff King, Dante Rosario, and Gary Barnidge "each have a quality of their own," but he's used to seeing Antonio Gates every day in practice. "If there is a guy out there whether through the draft or free agency or on our roster that can become that guy that does it all of the time we have to find him," said Rivera.
