 Latest Cardinals Player Notes
Nov 20 2017 - Patrick Peterson
  CB Patrick Peterson now has 21 career interceptions, which is tied for the ninth-most in Cardinals' history and is tied for the third-most among active players since the start of the 2011 season.


Nov 20 2017 - *Ricky Seals-Jones
  TE Ricky Seals-Jones, moving up to No. 3 on the depth chart following a season-ending ankle injury to Ifeanyi Momah, didn't have a catch in the NFL until Sunday's game against the Texans. The undrafted rookie free agent out of Texans A&M had three receptions for 56 yards and two touchdowns, however, in a 31-21 loss at Houston just some 50 miles from his hometown. "Ricky has really been impressive in practice against our defense," head coach Bruce Arians said. "Just put some plays in for him and he responded really well." Said Seals-Jones, "It was memorable. It's very good to make the last name on my back proud."


Nov 20 2017 - *Budda Baker
  SS Budda Baker, the team's rookie second-round pick out of Washington, made his first start of the season in place of the injured Tyvon Branch, and didn't disappoint in the loss to Houston. He finished with 13 tackles, a sack, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a pass breakup. "Throughout the week I got all the (first-team) reps so that helped a lot," Baker said. "Once it's game time, you just get to play." Head coach Bruce Arians was impressed, saying, "I thought Budda played his tail off. Just from the sideline, making the plays he made. He's going to be a heck of a player


Nov 20 2017 - Andre Ellington
  RB Andre Ellington, who typically plays as the team's third-down back, was a healthy scratch on Sunday against the Texans. He was replaced as the third-down back by second-year pro D.J. Foster, who finished with two receptions for 26 yards in his first action of the season. He did not have a rushing attempt. The Arizona State product won a Super Bowl last season as a member of the Patriots. Ellington was waived Monday.


Nov 20 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson is averaging less than two yards per carry over his past two games, gaining just 53 yards on 35 attempts.


Nov 20 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald would not discuss the one-year contract extension he signed Friday with the club following the Cardinals' 31-21 loss on the road Sunday to the Texans. Fitzgerald has caught at least one touchdown pass from 14 quarterbacks during his career with the Cardinals. The list, after catching his first TD from Blaine Gabbert on Sunday vs. the Texans, looks like this: Kurt Warner (39), Carson Palmer (28), Josh McCown (12), John Skelton (7), Kevin Kolb (5), Matt Leinart (5), Derek Anderson (4), Drew Stanton (2), Max Hall (1), Rich Bartel (1), John Navarre (1), Shaun King (1), Brian St. Pierre (1) and now Gabbert (1).


Nov 20 2017 - Bronson Hill
  RB Bronson Hill, who entered the league in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Michigan,was signed to the Cardinals' practice squad.


Nov 20 2017 - Andre Ellington
  RB Andre Ellington was released on Monday, a day after he was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game in Houston.


Nov 20 2017 - Blaine Gabbert
  QB Blaine Gabbert completed 22-of-34 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns. Gabbert did toss a pair of interceptions. "Blaine played his ass off," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "He probably had over a 100 quarterback rating until the end of the game. We didn't make any plays for him. We dropped way too many balls."


Nov 20 2017 - *Ricky Seals-Jones
  TE Ricky Seals-Jones had his first career touchdown via an 11-yard reception with 1:53 left in the first half.


Nov 20 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald, with 91 receiving yards, moved into fifth place on the NFL career list with 15,157, surpassing Tony Gonzalez (15,127). Isaac Bruce is fourth with 15,208 yards.


Nov 17 2017 - Drew Stanton
  QB Drew Stanton won't start Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. Arians told reporters that Stanton, who has a sprained knee, will be Blaine Gabbert's backup if he can physically play.


Nov 17 2017 - Blaine Gabbert
  QB Blaine Gabbert will start over injured Drew Stanton for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. Arians told reporters that Stanton, who has a sprained knee, will be Gabbert's backup if he can physically play. This will be Gabbert's first start since Week 5 last season for the San Francisco 49ers -- a 33-21 loss against the Cardinals on Oct. 6, 2016. The 28-year-old Gabbert completed 56.9 percent of his passes for 925 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions in six games last season.


Nov 17 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald signed a one-year contract extension with the Cardinals on Friday that keeps the 10-time Pro Bowl wide receiver under contract through the 2018 season. In his 14th season, the 34-year old Fitzgerald has 60 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cardinals in all three categories. The 6-3, 218-pound Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 receptions last season. Last week he became just the sixth player in NFL history to reach 15,000 career receiving yards. He currently ranks third in NFL history in career receptions (1,185), sixth in career receiving yards (15,066) and eighth in career touchdown receptions (107).


Nov 16 2017 - Vinston Painter
  T/G Vinston Painter was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, the Arizona Cardinals announced Thursday. Painter, who was on the active roster and played in Week 4, re-signed with the team's practice squad on Oct. 3. The 6-foot-4, 322-pound Painter has appeared in nine regular-season games in the NFL, with five coming with the Washington Redskins last season and three with the Cleveland Browns in 2014.


Nov 15 2017 - Patrick Peterson
  CB Patrick Peterson has been nominated for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, which was established in 2014 and recognizes players who demonstrate good qualities such as sportsmanship, fair play, integrity and respect for the game.


Nov 15 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald needs 62 receiving yards to pass tight end Tony Gonzalez (15,127) for fifth place on the NFL's all-time list for career receiving yards. Fitzgerald is 143 yards from passing Isaac Bruce (15,208) for fourth place.


Nov 15 2017 - *Budda Baker
  S Budda Baker has been making his mark as a rookie this season by starring on special teams as the Cardinals' best gunner on kickoff and punt coverage. But with the season-ending knee injury to starting strong safety Tyvon Branch, Baker is about to get a huge extra dose of playing time in Arizona's base 4-3 defense.


Nov 15 2017 - John Wetzel
  T John Wetzel is moving from backup left tackle to be the team's starting right tackle now that Jared Veldheer will be moving back to left tackle in place of the injured D.J. Humphries, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury.


Nov 15 2017 - Drew Stanton
  QB Drew Stanton (knee) was listed as limited in practice on Wednesday.


Nov 15 2017 - Corey Peters
  NT Corey Peters is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and is expected to miss not only Sunday's game at Houston, but perhaps an additional week or two. Head coach Bruce Arians said Xavier Williams and Rodney Gunter will take turns replacing him in the lineup.


Nov 14 2017 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson took to social media to reveal the latest step in his recovery from a dislocated wrist. Johnson posted a video on Twitter Monday showing that he had his cast removed on his left arm. "Guess what today is?" Johnson asked the camera. "The cast is off. Finally. Already feel the range of motion coming back.


Nov 10 2017 - D.J. Humphries
  LT D.J. Humphries had been turning into a cornerstone of not only the offensive line, but the entire franchise with his vastly improved play in the past month since returning from a strained MCL. Now, he's lost for the season with another MCL injury and a dislocated kneecap. "He has turned into a true pro - the film study, the extra work out on the practice field," head coach Bruce Arians said. "He used to be a jokester. Now, he's serious as heck. He's about his craft. It's just a shame for these young guys to put so much in after an injury and get injured again."


Nov 10 2017 - Phil Dawson
  K Phil Dawson had an extra-point attempt blocked toward the end of the game and it just further annoyed head coach Bruce Arians about the state of his team's kicking game. Dawson, 42, has also missed six field goals this season, including four from inside 40 yards. "It was slow operation time," Arians said. The snap from new long snapper Justin Drescher was low, which has been an ongoing problem. The hold and the kick weren't especially operational, either. "A little bit of the whole thing - all three," Arians said. Asked if the team will explore changes in that area, Arians said, "We always do. Yeah, we look at it."


Nov 10 2017 - *Budda Baker
  S Budda Baker, a second-round pick this year out of Washington who has earned more playing time over the past few weeks, will step in and replace the injured Tyvon Branch. "Yeah, Budda played pretty solid," head coach Bruce Arians said, referring to Thursday night's game against Seattle. "He had a couple alignment errors, dropped a ball right in his hands that we'd anticipate an interception. That was probably his biggest negative play. He made a great play saving a touchdown on the (Russell Wilson) scramble play, and we gave it up the next play, but he'll be fine. With 10 days of work, he'll be ready to go."


Nov 10 2017 - Ifeanyi Momah
  TE Ifeanyi Momah broke his leg in Thursday's game against the Seattle Seahawks and will miss the rest of the season, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. Momah also may need reconstructive ankle surgery, Arians said.


Nov 10 2017 - Tyvon Branch
  S Tyvon Branch suffered an ACL injury in Thursday's game against the Seattle Seahawks and will miss the rest of the season, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. Branch will undergo surgery to repair cartilage in his "locked" right knee, Arians said. Branch will have ACL surgery at a later date.


Nov 10 2017 - D.J. Humphries
  LT D.J. Humphries suffered an MCL injury and a dislocated kneecap in Thursday's game against the Seattle Seahawks and will miss the rest of the season, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. Arians said after Humphries undergoes surgery, he expects him to be ready for organized team activities in the spring.


Nov 10 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald had 10 catches for 113 yards Thursday in the Cardinals' loss to the Seahawks.


Nov 10 2017 - Patrick Peterson
  CB Patrick Peterson and Seahawks CB Richard Sherman have made 204 consecutive starts between them, with Peterson making his 105th on Thursday and Sherman his 99th. Those are the third- and fourth-longest such active streaks by cornerbacks in the league, but Sherman's streak will end Nov. 20, as he sustained a season-ended Achilles injury Thursday.


Nov 10 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson was held to 29 yards on 21 carries Thursday against Seattle. Peterson's 314 rushing yards in his first three games for the Cardinals already were 55 more than Arizona had as a team through its first five games this season.


Nov 10 2017 - Drew Stanton
  QB Drew Stanton was 24 of 47 for 273 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' loss to the Seahawks on Thursday.


Nov 10 2017 - Ifeanyi Momah
  TE Ifeanyi Momah exited in the second half Thursday due to an ankle injury. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Momah likely is headed for season-ending injured reserve.


Nov 10 2017 - Tyvon Branch
  S Tyvon Branch exited in the first quarter Thursday because of what looked to be a serious right knee injury. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Branch likely is headed for season-ending injured reserve.


Nov 10 2017 - D.J. Humphries
  LT D.J. Humphries exited in the first quarter Thursday because of what looked to be a serious right knee injury. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Humphries likely is headed for season-ending injured reserve, adding he felt particularly bad for the third-year pro who was making huge strides this season. "It's just a shame," he said. "Guy was playing fantastic."


Nov 8 2017 - T.J. Logan
  RB T.J. Logan might be activated off injured reserve after all. Several days ago, coach Bruce Arians said he doubted the rookie kick returner would return but on Wednesday wouldn't rule it out. "We're going to try and have him catch punts with a brace on next week and see where he's at," Arians said.


Nov 8 2017 - Phil Dawson
  K Phil Dawson has missed six field goals through eight games thus far, including four from inside 40 yards. Head coach Bruce Arians was asked about Dawson's troubles again on Wednesday. "Just shake it off, you know?" he said. "He's had two snappers and two holders. It's just sooner or later you've got to get back to basics and just trust everybody."


Nov 8 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson said that although he ran for 159 yards against the 49ers Sunday, he probably left "150 more yards out on the field." Told of Peterson's comments, Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries shook his head and smiled. "That's ridiculous," he said, "but you know what? He said that, and you can watch the film, and it's like, 'Dang, he's right! We've still got some more work to do.'" Peterson needs one rushing touchdown for 100 in his career, which would make him just the ninth player in NFL history to reach the century mark. It also would tie him with Marshall Faulk and Shaun Alexander for seventh place on the NFL's all-time list for career rushing touchdowns.


Nov 8 2017 - D.J. Humphries
  LT D.J. Humphries played all 77 snaps on Sunday in Arizona's 20-10 victory over the 49ers, plus another five snaps on special teams. He'll have no time to rest, however, as the Cardinals make the quick turnaround and meet the Seahawks at home on Thursday night. "I'm sore. I'm sore as hell," he said. "I'm going to be fine, though. I'm 23. You should ask the older guys how they feel. Pretty sure that's the real tell. I'll be fine in a couple days."


Nov 8 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald has recorded 27 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns in his last three games at University of Phoenix Stadium.


Nov 8 2017 - Chandler Jones
  OLB Chandler Jones leads the NFL in tackles for losses (14) and leads linebackers in sacks (9.0) and QB hits (16) in 2017. His 32.5 sacks since 2015 are tied with Denver's Von Miller for the most in the NFL during that span.


Nov 8 2017 - Karlos Dansby
  ILB Karlos Dansby received a game ball from head coach Bruce Arians for becoming the fifth player in history to record 20 career interceptions and 40 career sacks. He got his 20th interception on Sunday against the 49ers' C.J. Beathard.


Nov 8 2017 - Karlos Dansby
  LB Karlos Dansby was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the 20-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Two days after celebrating his 36th birthday, Dansby made his 20th career interception, and combined with his 43 career sacks, he became just the fifth player in NFL history with 40-plus sacks and 20-plus interceptions. He finished the game with seven tackles, a sack, an interception, a tackle for loss, two quarterback hits and two passes defensed.


Nov 6 2017 - Max Tuerk
  C Max Tuerk, a third-round pick last year who had yet to see the field, was signed by the Cardinals off the Chargers' practice squad.


Nov 6 2017 - Daniel Munyer
  C Daniel Munyer was placed on injured reserve with a toe issue on Monday. Munyer was third on the Cardinals' depth chart at center.


Nov 6 2017 - Max Tuerk
  C Max Tuerk signed with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday. The 6-foot-5, 298-pound Tuerk was suspended for the first four games of 2017 for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. The Chargers waived him after the suspension ended and signed him to their practice squad on Oct. 26.


Nov 6 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald had five receptions for 70 yards Sunday and passed Tim Brown for sixth place on the all-time yardage list with 14,953. Brown has 14,934. The next three on the list are Tony Gonzalez (15,127), Issac Bruce (15,208) and Randy Moss (15,292).


Nov 6 2017 - Karlos Dansby
  ILB Karlos Dansby reached a rare NFL milestone when he intercepted a pass late in the fourth quarter. The interception was the 20th of Dansby's career to go with 42 sacks. He became the fifth player in NFL history with at least 40 sacks and 20 interceptions. Dansby didn't have to work too hard for his 20th interception. San Francisco QB C.J. Beathard's first-and-goal pass from the 9 deflected off LT Trent Brown's helmet, popped into the air and went right to Dansby, who intercepted at the Arizona 7 and returned it four yards with 2:28 remaining in the game.


Nov 6 2017 - Drew Stanton
  QB Drew Stanton passed for 201 yards and two touchdowns in his first start of the season for Arizona, 20-10 victory at San Francisco. He completed half of his 30 passes with one interception.


Nov 6 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson, 32m rushed for 159 yards on a career-high 37 carries to lead the Cardinals to a 20-10 victory over the 49ers on Sunday. Peterson had more carries in NFL history by a running back age 30 or older. "I really wasn't thinking about it," said Peterson, who came to Arizona in a trade from New Orleans on Oct. 10. "I kind of felt I was getting up into the 30s, but I was gauging that. I felt good, fresh. The legs felt good and the guys were doing a great job up front pushing that line of scrimmage." His 159 yards gave him 12,142 for his career, passing Thurman Thomas and Franco Harris to move into 13th place on the all-time rushing list.
