Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said TE Rob Housler has a high ankle won't play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

A high ankle sprain means he'll likely miss some regular season time as well. Housler was getting some early-summer attention but we rank him just 29th, which is TE3 material. Jeff King would likely be up next on the depth chart.

Tight end should be a position of strength for the Cardinals, but that was supposed to be the case last year.

They will try again this year, probably with the same four players: Jeff King, Todd Heap, Robert Housler and Jim Dray. Last year, King was the only one of the four to play in all 16 games.

King is the best all-around player of the group, but he will miss the start of training camp after suffering a partially torn quadriceps tendon in off-season workouts.

Housler will be given every chance to become a breakout player. He's fast and displayed good hands in college. He participated in a lot of plays during off-season work as coaches tried to get him as much experience as possible.

Fantasy Impact:

Heap is the only one of the four to make our TE list, and he likely won't get drafted at all, or if he does, very late based on his ADP. If you feel you've missed out on the TE position in your drafts this year, keep these guys in mind for later in the year. We'll also have to wait for the Cardinal QB situation to become more stable.

Cardinals TE coach Freddie Kitchens, entering his 6th season on staff, updated the status of Jeff King, who missed all of mini-camp and the OTAs after suffering a partially torn quadriceps tendon:

"The prognosis on him is that he's going to be back at some point during training camp. I'm not too concerned with him. He's going to work his tail off and do everything he needs to do to get back."

One thing that was clear this off-season is that the Cardinals would like to incorporate the tight end more into the passing game.

Todd Heap, when healthy, has been one of the leading receivers at the position over the past decade. Coaches are excited about the potential of Rob Housler, a rookie last year, because he has the speed to cause matchup problems for defenses. Veteran Jeff King is probably the best all-around tight end on the team.

The Cardinals aren't saying they are morphing into the New England Patriots, who have a devastating tight end duo in Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. But the tight end position should be a strength, and if it is, that could open things up more for WR Larry Fitzgerald.

Fantasy Impact:

This is all well and good, but we're not expecting a whole lot out of the Arizona TEs this season.
