J.J. Nelson (chest) was removed from the Week 12 injury report.

Nelson practiced fully Friday after being limited early in the week. He'll be the No. 2 option with John Brown sidelined, but isn't a good streamer. Nelson's outlook will be improved if Jalen Ramsey (questionable, hand) is held out.
Nov 24 - 3:50 PM

John Brown (toe) is out for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

As expected. Brown is dealing with turf toe and didn't practice all week. Always hurt and often plagued by poor quarterback play, Brown remains well off the fantasy radar.
Nov 24 - 2:48 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Brown should be officially ruled out for Sunday's game with Jacksonville when final injury reports are released later today. He's been battling a case of turf toe. Rookie Chad Williams should see more run in Brown's absence.
Nov 24 - 1:37 PM

Drew Stanton (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Stanton is still working his way back from a Week 10 knee sprain. Even if he gets cleared for Sunday, Blaine Gabbert will start against Jacksonville.
Nov 22 - 5:41 PM

J.J. Nelson (chest) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out this week. With John Brown sidelined, Nelson should see an increase in targets.

Coach Bruce Arians admitted Carson Palmer (arm, I.R.) isn't expected to return this season.

"None of the guys on IR have made expected progress in rehab, so as of today, no one is expected to return this season," Arians said. Palmer, along with David Johnson (wrist) is one of those players on I.R. He broke his arm back in Week 7 and was hoping to be back in around six weeks, but that was always on the optimistic side. The Cardinals are done at 4-6 and will ride with Blaine Gabbert as the current starter. He actually has a decent fantasy playoffs schedule.

Coach Bruce Arians admitted David Johnson (wrist, I.R.) hasn't "made expected progress" and isn't expected to return this season.

"None of the guys on IR have made expected progress in rehab, so as of today, no one is expected to return this season," Arians said. That seems to go for Carson Palmer (arm) as well. The Cardinals seem to realize their season is in the gutter and circling the drain at 4-6. Owners holding onto Johnson can likely cut bait without consequence. He'll be 100 percent for the offseason.
Nov 22 - 3:45 PM

John Brown (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

Brown is battling turf toe and is expected to miss time. In his absence, Chad Williams could see more reps behind Larry Fitzgerald, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson. Brown can be dropped in season-long leagues.
Nov 22 - 3:33 PM

Cardinals promoted WR Carlton Agudosi from the practice squad.

With John Brown out for Week 12, the Cards needed an extra body at receiver. An UDFA out of Rutgers, Agudosi caught four passes for 52 yards in the preseason.
Nov 21 - 1:45 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said third-round WR Chad Williams "is going to get his shot."

Arians hinted there was going to be a change to the receiver rotation following Sunday's loss, and John Brown's toe injury makes it even more likely Williams will get snaps. "Injuries are going to have some part of that, but it wouldn’t have mattered," Arians said. "He’s been practicing really, really well." Arizona has a nice schedule in the fantasy playoffs, making Williams a name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues.

Carson Palmer (broken arm, injured reserve) recently had his cast removed.

It's a step in the right direction, though Palmer is still weeks away from a potential return. A best-case scenario would be Week 16. It's possible starting Weeks 16 and 17 would be a victory lap for Palmer for a long and successful career before he retires from football.
Nov 20 - 3:51 PM

Cardinals DE Josh Mauro is week to week with a high-ankle sprain.

Playing roughly 50 percent of the snaps, Mauro has been a liability this season. He's made seven starts but tallied only one sack.
Nov 20 - 2:26 PM

Blaine Gabbert will remain the Cardinals' starting quarterback for Week 12.

Coach Bruce Arians said the team would stick with Gabbert until Drew Stanton (knee) is "totally healthy." Stanton was "totally healthy" enough to back up Gabbert on Sunday, so expect the Cardinals to stretch out the meaning of "totally healthy" for however long Gabbert pleases them under center. Gabbert was a mild upgrade on Stanton, but it will be impossible for him to look good against the Jaguars in Week 12.
Nov 20 - 2:14 PM

John Brown has been diagnosed with turf toe, and coach Bruce Arians believes he could "miss time."

Arians spoke about Brown missing time as mostly a formality, saying Chad Williams would get a look in Week 12. Brown has been banged up for most of 2017 but missed "just" two games so far. Turf toe can linger for weeks. With only two weeks left in the fantasy regular season, Brown is safely droppable in re-draft leagues.
Nov 20 - 2:12 PM

Jermaine Gresham caught his only target for 10 yards in the Cardinals' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

Gresham had been heavily involved in the offense the last couple games and had a good matchup in Houston, but he watched rookie Ricky Seals-Jones break out with the first three catches and first two touchdowns of his career. With the Jaguars up next, Gresham can be left on the wire.
