 Latest Cardinals Player Notes
Oct 16 2018 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson will be making his 10th career appearance in prime time and he's been impressive in those games thus far. In his first nine prime-time appearances, Johnson accounted for 763 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 151 carries to go along with 32 receptions for 273 yards and a touchdown. Arizona went 7-1-1 in those games.


Oct 16 2018 - Justin Pugh
  RG Justin Pugh suffered a broken left hand in the Minnesota game but stands a good chance to play Thursday night against Denver after practicing on Tuesday with a protective glove on the hand. If he can't play Thursday night, backup Daniel Munyer will get the call. Asked if Pugh can block with his sore hand, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said, "I believe so. He's been practicing and doing a nice job with it, so we'll see come Thursday. I believe he can do it."


Oct 16 2018 - Mike Iupati
  LG Mike Iupati missed practice on Tuesday with a back injury he suffered last Sunday against the Vikings. If he can't play Thursday night against the Broncos, the starting job likely will go to John Wetzel, a swing tackle who also has seen time at guard a year ago. Iupati's regular backup, newly-acquired Jeremy Vujnovich, suffered a hamstring injury upon replacing Iupati in the Vikings game and also missed practice on Tuesday. "We move guys around, whether it's on scout team for looks on the defense or you rest certain guys. Not everyone takes every single snap in practice," offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said. "You always prepare for those things."


Oct 16 2018 - Kyle Friend
  C Kyle Friend was signed by the Cardinals to their practice squad Tuesday (Oct. 16). He had been waived by the Panthers Sept. 1. Friend (6-2, 305) spent all of last season on Pittsburgh's practice squad after previously playing his rookie season with the Jets practice squad in 2016. He entered the league with the Jets as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016 out of Temple.


Oct 15 2018 - Coleman Shelton
  C Coleman Shelton was signed by the Cardinals to their practice squad Monday (Oct. 15). He had been released by the Titans from the practice squad Oct. 9.


Oct 15 2018 - Justin Pugh
  RG Justin Pugh might have broken his left hand in the game at Minnesota, Wilks said. Pugh is listed as day-to-day but he is likely out against Denver with it being a short week.


Oct 15 2018 - Mike Iupati
  LG Mike Iupati is listed as day-to-day with his back injury. Head coach Steve Wilks indicated that the team might need more time than by Thursday's kickoff to determine Iupati's playing status.


Oct 15 2018 - Jeremy Vujnovich
  RG Jeremy Vujnovich (hamstring) is out with an injury and is questionable for Thursday's game. Vujnovich was one of the replacements for Justin Pugh on Sunday.


Oct 15 2018 - Brandon Wilds
  RB Brandon Wilds, who was cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week when they decided to sign free agent Jamaal Charles, was signed by the Cardinals to the practice squad. The team cut RB Jalen Simmons to make room for Wilds, who likely will not be activated for Thursday's game against Denver unless RB David Johnson is injured.


Oct 15 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen was 21-of-31 passing for 240 yards in Sunday's loss at Minnesota.


Oct 11 2018 - Deatrick Nichols
  CB Deatrick Nichols was signed by the Cardinals to their practice squad Wednesday (Oct. 10). He had been waived by the Cardinals Monday. Nichols (5-10, 189) spent the first five weeks of the season on the Cardinals active roster and played in two games and had one special teams tackle.


Oct 10 2018 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson is on pace to finish with just 774 rushing yard and only 384 receiving yards after leading the league in total yards from scrimmage in 2016. Johnson said he's confident he and the Cardinals will get the team's rushing game untracked. "Just keep grinding," Johnson said. "Just keep grinding and doing what they pay me to do, doing what the coaches and my teammates expect me to do and we'll get through it for sure."


Oct 10 2018 - Mike Iupati
  LG Mike Iupati (elbow/shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday, but head coach Steve Wilks said he expected him to be ready Sunday at Minnesota.


Oct 10 2018 - D.J. Humphries
  LT D.J. Humphries (knee) and LG Mike Iupati (elbow/shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday, but head coach Steve Wilks said he expected both of them to be ready Sunday at Minnesota.


Oct 10 2018 - Andre Smith
  RT Andre Smith hasn't been healthy since the start of the season when he left in the opener because of an elbow injury, missed the next three games entirely, and then was forced to leave Sunday's game at the 49ers because off a pulled hamstring. Smith did not practice on Wednesday, although he said he definitely planned on playing in Sunday's game when the Cardinals play at the Vikings.


Oct 10 2018 - Chandler Jones
  DE Chandler Jones earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after recording a sack, forced fumble and recovery in Sunday's win over the San Francisco 49ers.


Oct 9 2018 - Coleman Shelton
  C Coleman Shelton was released from the practice squad by the Titans Tuesday (Oct. 9).


Oct 9 2018 - Brandon Wilds
  RB Brandon Wilds was placed on waivers by the Jaguars Tuesday (Oct. 9).


Oct 8 2018 - Markus Golden
  DE Markus Golden was also inactive against the 49ers because of a knee injury. He also missed practice last week and his status for Sunday's game against the Vikings is undetermined.


Oct 8 2018 - Robert Nkemdiche
  DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) missed practice Friday after having injury issues during the week and was inactive against San Francisco last week. His availability this week at Minnesota is questionable.


Oct 8 2018 - Kendall Wright
  WR Kendall Wright was signed Monday to a one-year contract. To make room on the roster, the Cardinals released cornerback Deatrick Nichols. In six years, Wright has played in 82 games. He has 339 receptions for 3,858 yards (averaging 11.4 yards per catch) and 19 touchdowns. The Baylor product was drafted by the Titans in the first round of the 2012 draft. He spent five seasons in Tennessee, a season in Chicago, and had most recently been signed by the Vikings, before he was cut on Sept. 1.


Oct 8 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald, who has been nursing a hamstring pull, was targeted only three times Sunday. He had two receptions for 35 yards.


Oct 8 2018 - Andre Smith
  RT Andre Smith has been hampered by an elbow injury most of the season, but he is now suffering from a hamstring pull. He only played in 67 percent of the snaps against San Francisco last week.


Oct 8 2018 - Kendall Wright
  WR Kendall Wright was signed by the Cardinals Monday (Oct. 8). Wright (5-10, 185) is a six-year NFL veteran who has played in 82 games (45 starts) in his career and has 339 receptions for 3,858 yards (11.4 yard avg.) and 19 touchdowns. The 28-year old Wright played all 16 games (four starts) last season with the Bears and had 59 receptions for 614 yards and one touchdown. He has at least 50 receptions and 500 receiving yards in four of his six NFL seasons. Wright spent his first five seasons in the league with Tennessee after being selected by the Titans in the first-round (20thoverall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Baylor. He totaled 280 receptions for 3,244 yards and 18 touchdowns during his tenure (2012-16) with the Titans. Wright signed with Minnesota in the offseason, but was released on September 1. G/T Bryan Witzmann was signed by the Bears Monday (Oct. 8). His contract had been terminated by the Vikings Friday.


Oct 8 2018 - Deatrick Nichols
  CB Deatrick Nichols was placed on waivers by the Cardinals Monday (Oct. 8).


Oct 8 2018 - Christian Kirk
  WR Christian Kirk caught a 75-yard touchdown pass on Arizona's first play from scrimmage Sunday. He easily raced down the middle of the field with 9:39 remaining to give Arizona (1-4) the lead. Kirk led all receivers with 85 catches on three catches.


Oct 8 2018 - Josh Bynes
  LB Josh Bynes added to the lead Sunday with a 23-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown.


Oct 8 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen threw a 75-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage Sunday. Rosen's first pass of his second career start was a long strike down the middle to Christian Kirk, who easily raced down the middle of the field with 9:39 remaining to give Arizona (1-4) the lead. The Cardinals scored 10 seconds after Matt Brieda's 5-yard reception opened the scoring, but the 49ers botched the extra-point attempt. Rosen completed 10 of 25 passes for 170 yards as the Cardinals grinded out their first win under new coach Steve Wilks despite getting 10 first downs, allowing 33 first downs and maintaining possession for 19:48.


Oct 3 2018 - Bene' Benwikere
  CB Bene' Benwikere (neck), DT Corey Peters (elbow) and WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. According to coach Steve Wilks, the three are day-to-day but he fully expects them to be available Sunday against the 49ers.


Oct 3 2018 - Corey Peters
  DT Corey Peters (elbow), WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) and CB Bene' Benwikere (neck) did not practice Wednesday. According to coach Steve Wilks, the three are day-to-day but he fully expects them to be available Sunday against the 49ers.


Oct 3 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring), DT Corey Peters (elbow) and CB Bene' Benwikere (neck) did not practice Wednesday. According to coach Steve Wilks, the three are day-to-day but he fully expects them to be available Sunday against the 49ers.


Oct 3 2018 - Markus Golden
  DE Markus Golden didn't practice on Wednesday, but head coach Steve Wilks said it was more of just a rest day for Golden as he continues to fully work his way back from a torn ACL. "You still don't want to put a lot on him," Wilks said. "Being able to give him that day today, I think is good. He'll be ready to go tomorrow."


Oct 3 2018 - Andre Smith
  RT Andre Smith (elbow) is close to 100 percent and although he was limited in practice on Wednesday, head coach Steve Wilks said Smith could be in the starting lineup Sunday against the 49ers after not playing the past three weeks. John Wetzel has made the start there in Smith's absence, but that could change this week. "If Andre is healthy, he'll slide back in, yes," Wilks said.


Oct 3 2018 - Josh Bynes
  LB Josh Bynes has emerged as the Cardinals' most reliable player in the middle of their defense. He's getting his first extended chance at being a regular starter and has gone from journeyman to potential start in the making. "When you look at Josh, the first thing that comes out is that he's just smart," head coach Steve Wilks said. "Josh gets everybody aligned and that's important within our defense. Seeing certain adjustments and checks and being able to get either the front or the secondary in the right position, that's what he brings and that's the reason why he's out there."


Oct 1 2018 - Bene' Benwikere
  CB Bene Benwikere took over the No. 2 cornerback spot in place of Jamar Taylor. Benwikere finished with four tackles, a tackle for loss and a forced fumble, but did miss a crucial tackle on Seahawks wide receiver David Moore, who gained 30 yards on the play.


Oct 1 2018 - Phil Dawson
  PK Phil Dawson missed two of his three field goal attempts, including a 45-yarder with 1:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, in Arizona's 20-17 loss to Seattle on Sunday. Making that would given the Cardinals a 20-17 lead. The Seahawks took over at their 35 after the miss and drove down to the Cardinals' 34, where Sebastian Janikowski nailed a 52-yarder as time expired. Dawson also missed a 50-yarder on the last play of the first half that would have given the Cardinals a 13-7 advantage.


Oct 1 2018 - Mike Glennon
  QB Mike Glennon will remain Josh Rosen's backup at quarterback, head coach Steve Wilks indicated. That means Sam Bradford, who was inactive Sunday, will remain the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart.


Oct 1 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald is day-to-day with his lingering hamstring injury. "Everybody is dealing with something," he said. Arizona coach Steve Wilks is confident Fitzgerald will play against the 49ers. Fitzgerald has been listed as questionable the last two games but has played.


Sep 30 2018 - Andre Smith
  RT Andre Smith (elbow) is expected to return this week for the game against the San Francisco 49ers. He will likely return to the starting lineup. John Wetzel has been starting in Smith's place.


Sep 26 2018 - Phil Dawson
  K Phil Dawson needs one more field goal will to ahead of Jason Elam (436) for the eighth-most in NFL history.


Sep 26 2018 - Patrick Peterson
  CB Patrick Peterson will make his 116th consecutive start for the Cardinals on Sunday against Seattle. That's the third-longest such streak in the NFL among active defensive backs behind only the Baltimore Ravens' Brandon Carr (165) and the Detroit Lions' Grover Quin (135). Peterson is the first Cardinals' player since at least 1970 to start 100 or more consecutive games to begin his career.


Sep 26 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, but coach Steve Wilks said the veteran was mostly held out for precautionary reasons to give Fitzgerald some extra rest. Fitzgerald needs one reception to have at least one catch in 215 consecutive games, which would be the second-longest reception streak in NFL history behind Jerry Rice (274). Fitzgerald also needs one more receiving touchdown to tie former tight end Tony Gonzalez for seventh on the NFL's all-time list with 111.


Sep 26 2018 - Robert Nkemdiche
  DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) suffered a minor injury in the Bears' game and did not practice on Wednesday. Coach Steve Wilks said he just wanted to give him an extra day to recover.


Sep 26 2018 - Corey Peters
  DT Corey Peters (elbow) suffered a minor injury in the Bears' game and did not practice on Wednesday. Coach Steve Wilks said he just wanted to give him an extra day to recover.


Sep 26 2018 - Andre Smith
  RT Andre Smith (elbow) did not practice on Wednesday, a possible sign he might miss his third straight game.


Sep 26 2018 - Ufomba Kamalu
  DE Ufomba Kamalu was signed by the Cardinals to the practice squad Tuesday (Sept. 25). He had been waived by the Texans Sept. 1. Kamalu (6-6, 295) has played in 13 career games (three starts) with Houston and has 11 tackles, three sacks and five tackles for loss after entering the league with the Texans as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016 out of the University of Miami. A three-year NFL veteran, Kamalu played in nine games (two starts) with Houston last season and had two sacks and six tackles.


Sep 24 2018 - Ifeadi Odenigbo
  DE Ifeadi Odenigbo was claimed on waivers from the Browns Monday (Sept. 24) by the Cardinals after being waived Saturday.


Sep 24 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen has been named the Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Seattle, Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks announced on Monday. "Josh is our starter and it's his job to lose," Wilks said. Rosen will replace veteran Sam Bradford as the Cardinals' starter. Rosen had his first action in a regular season game on Sunday when he entered the contest after the Chicago Bears took a 16-14 lead with 4:31 left in the game. Rosen led the Cardinals on a drive to the Bears' 45-yard line on his first series, but the drive ended when he threw an interception on a fourth-down play.


Sep 23 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen, the 10th pick of this year's draft, came in for an ineffective, turnover-prone Sam Bradford in the fourth quarter with the game on the line and marched the Cardinals to the Bears' 42. But Bryce Callahan made an interception at Chicago's 37 on fourth-and-5 and all but sealed the Bears' second straight win. It's unclear if Rosen will continue as Arizona's quarterback, or if Bradford will come back next week. "I threw a pick and almost a second pick-6," Rosen said, "so I've got a lot to work on." Head coach Steve Wilks said he made the quarterback change to Rosen because, "I felt like we needed a spark." It's unclear now whether Rosen will continue as the quarterback or Bradford will start.


Sep 22 2018 - Ifeadi Odenigbo
  DE Israel Odenigbo was placed on waivers by the Browns Saturday (Sept. 22).
