Cardinals signed CB David Amerson.

Amerson has been out of the league all season after being released by the Chiefs ahead of Week 1. He was released by the Raiders last offseason and hasn't been an effective cover man for a couple years. The 2013 second-rounder turns 27 next month and has good size. He's worth the speculative flier.

Cardinals placed RG Justin Pugh on injured reserve with a left knee injury, ending his season.

It ends an injury-plagued first year in Arizona for the former Giant. Pugh missed two earlier games with a hand injury. The No. 19 overall pick of the 2013 draft will head into 2019 having not appeared in 16 games since his rookie season. He has averaged nine appearances since 2016. Pugh is set to make $5 million in 2019. He had been ineffective before going down. Pugh's backup is Jeremy Vujnovich.

Cardinals RG Justin Pugh suffered a knee injury in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

Pugh was quickly ruled out after going down. The Cardinals didn't update Pugh's status after the game, but he could miss some time. Jeremy Vujnovich is Pugh's backup.
Nov 11 - 5:48 PM

Ricky Seals-Jones caught 5-of-9 targets for 51 yards in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

Seals-Jones took on a larger role with Chad Williams out. His nine targets were behind only Larry Fitzgerald. Williams looks likely to miss another week, so Seals-Jones will be on the Week 11 streaming radar against the Raiders.
Nov 11 - 4:49 PM

Christian Kirk caught 2-of-6 targets for eight yards in Week 10 against Kansas City.

It's a quiet game for Kirk coming off his Week 8 heroics. Kirk's longest catch was called back on a holding penalty. His snaps were up with Chad Williams out, but the Cardinals went run heavy in a game they kept closer than expected. Kirk has rebound matchup against Oakland in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:44 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-10 targets for 50 yards in Week 10 against Kansas City.

It's a step back after Fitzgerald had touchdowns the last two weeks. Fitzgerald led the team in targets, but the Cardinals' offense struggled to maintain drives with Josh Rosen facing constant pressures. Chad Williams is looking at a potential multi-game absence, so Fitzgerald's target share will have him in the WR3 mix against the Raiders in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:35 PM

David Johnson rushed 21 times for 98 yards and a touchdown and caught 7-of-9 targets for 85 yards and a receiving touchdown.

It's easily the best game of the year for Johnson, who saw a season-high 28 touches. Both of his touchdowns came in the red-zone -- scoring on a nine-yard strike from Josh Rosen in the first quarter and capping off the Cardinals' opening drive of the second half with a goal-line TD. Johnson has been more involved since OC Byron Leftwich took over playcalling in Week 8. He'll be in the RB1 mix for Week 11 against the Raiders.
Nov 11 - 4:31 PM

Josh Rosen completed 22-of-39 passes for 208 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in Week 10 against the Chiefs.

This was another small step forward for Rosen, but he continued to take too many sacks. Rosen's only touchdown was a red-zone strike to David Johnson. The Cardinals have looked better under OC Byron Leftwich, but they're still a bottom-tier offense. Rosen has an attackable matchup with Oakland in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:09 PM

Jermaine Gresham (back) is active for Week 10 against Kansas City.

It's a slight downgrade for Ricky Seals-Jones. The Cardinals are also getting Tre Boston back this week. Inactive for Arizona are WR Chad Williams, WR Kendall Wright, S Eddie Pleasant, OL Zack Golditch, OG Mike Iupati, OL Colby Gossett, and DT Robert Nkemdiche.
Nov 11 - 11:35 AM

Jermaine Gresham (back) is questionable for Week 10 against the Chiefs.

Gresham should play after getting in a full practice Friday. He'll continue to split time Ricky Seals-Jones.
Nov 9 - 6:17 PM

Chad Williams (ankle) is out for Week 10 against the Chiefs.

J.J. Nelson, Kendall Wright, or Trent Sherfield will fill-in for Williams as the team's third wideout. This should ultimately lead to a slight increase in targets for both Larry Fitzgerald and rookie Christian Kirk in OC Byron Leftwich's new uptempo scheme. Kirk remains a WR3/FLEX in a four-team bye week.
Nov 9 - 2:04 PM

Chad Williams (ankle) did not practice Friday.

He also sat out Wednesday and Thursday, making him almost certain to be ruled out on Friday afternoon. With Williams sidelined, Christian Kirk could see a bump in targets.
Nov 9 - 1:09 PM

Chad Williams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Williams played his normal allotment of snaps last time out against the 49ers in Week 8 but is now injured coming out of the bye week. The second-year pro has caught 11-of-27 targets for 113 yards and a score this year.
Nov 7 - 5:25 PM

Cardinals re-signed WR Kendall Wright.

Wright spent 10 days with the Cardinals last month, but he was released without ever seeing the field. He should stick around a little longer this time, but he is still not a fantasy option.
Nov 5 - 12:16 PM

Ricky Seals-Jones caught 2-of-4 targets for 12 yards in the Cardinals' Week 8 victory over the Niners.

New OC Byron Leftwich's scheme benefitted nearly everyone except Seals-Jones, who stayed splitting time with incumbent starter Jermaine Gresham. To add insult to injury, Gresham even out-gained RSJ 22-12 on the day. Unless Gresham is ruled out, Seals-Jones can't be trusted as a starting tight end moving forward.
