Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Redskins.

Mathieu has sat out practice the last two days after opening the week as a limited participant. Coach Bruce Arians is calling Mathieu a "game-time decision," but it would be a major upset if he plays on Sunday. Things are looking up for Jamison Crowder and Vernon Davis with Mathieu absent from the slot this week.
Dec 2 - 2:48 PM

Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The practice confirms Mathieu did not suffer any setbacks in his return to game action against the Falcons. He could be limited all week, but Mathieu looks set to play against Washington.
Nov 30 - 5:04 PM

ESPN's Britt McHenry reports Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder, questionable) will play in Sunday's Week 12 game against the Falcons.

As expected. Mathieu sat out two games with a shoulder subluxation, but he is ready to roll after getting in a limited week of practice. He began the year at free safety but has since moved back to his more familiar position at slot corner. McHenry also reports Mathieu's knee is "feeling strong again," suggesting he will finish this season on a high note.
Nov 27 - 8:14 AM

Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is questionable for Week 12 against the Falcons.

Mathieu put in three limited practices just as he did last week. Unlike last week, Mathieu is fully expected to play. He should resume his role as the team's primary slot corner on Sunday following a two-game absence.
Nov 25 - 3:21 PM

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said "there's a good chance" Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) returns this week against the Falcons.

That was thought to be the case last week as well, but Mathieu was inactive following a week of limited practices. His availability will be more assured if he is able to return to full work in practice this week. The flailing Cardinals need their playmaker back on the field as soon as possible.
Nov 21 - 10:17 AM

Cardinals declared CB Tyrann Mathieu, WR Chris Hubert, CB Tharold Simon, G Cole Toner, DT Olsen Pierre, DT Robert Nkemdiche, and DT Corey Peters inactive for Week 11 against the Vikings.

Mathieu (shoulder) is believed to be targeting a Week 12 return.
Nov 20 - 11:37 AM

Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is out for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Vikings.

Mathieu resumed practicing this week but still needs another week to get healthy. With Mathieu out of the mix, it appears Patrick Peterson will handle slot duties Sunday against Stefon Diggs. Look for Mathieu to return against Atlanta in Week 12.
Nov 20 - 10:17 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cardinals CB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Vikings.

On Friday, coach Bruce Arians called Mathieu's availability a "Sunday decision." It sounds like it's already been decided. Mathieu's absence increases the chances Patrick Peterson will shadow Stefon Diggs into the slot. If Mathieu were healthy, the Cardinals would likely feel more comfortable leaving Peterson outside. Mathieu remains week to week with a dislocated shoulder.
Nov 20 - 1:35 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Tyrann Mathieu's (shoulder) Week 11 availability will be a "Sunday decision."

If Mathieu is inactive, it would increase the likelihood that Patrick Peterson shadows Stefon Diggs, who over the last two games has run nearly 80 percent of his routes at slot receiver. Mathieu opened the season playing safety, but moved to slot corner before suffering his shoulder injury. If Mathieu does play Sunday, he may match up with Kyle Rudolph more than Diggs.
Nov 18 - 2:42 PM

Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

It puts him on track to play Sunday after going down before Arizona's Week 9 bye. The Cardinals are expected to shadow Stefon Diggs with Patrick Peterson, but Mathieu could see a lot of Diggs when he moves inside. Mathieu's return is an upgrade to the entire secondary.
Nov 16 - 5:08 PM

Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is expected to return for Week 11 against the Vikings.

Mathieu missed the Week 10 win over the 49ers, and CB Marcus Cooper really struggled to cover the slot in his absence. Mathieu and Patrick Peterson will team up to try and stop Stefon Diggs this coming Sunday.

Cardinals declared FS Tyrann Mathieu, WR Chris Hubert, CB Tharold Simon, OG Cole Toner, DT Olsen Pierre, DT Robert Nkemdiche, and DT Ed Stinson inactive for Week 10 against the 49ers.

Mathieu is out with a shoulder injury. His loss shouldn't be felt too much in this one.
Nov 13 - 3:04 PM

Cardinals CB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is out for Week 10 against the 49ers.

The Cardinals should be able to get away with Mathieu's absence against the hapless 49ers this week. It sounds like Mathieu is targeting a Week 11 return.
Nov 11 - 1:42 PM

Cardinals CB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder subluxation) is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

Mathieu was given a 3-6 week timeline after going down in Week 8, and it sounds like he could return as early as Week 11. Coach Bruce Arians hasn't formally ruled him out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, but it will be a stretch, especially since Arizona won't need Mathieu to dust the pathetic Niners.
