Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Floyd tweaked his knee in Week 8, but finished the game. It’s not much of a concern at this point.

Cardinals beat writer Josh Weinfuss: With WR John Brown, Arizona added a reliable speed option. Carson Palmer and Brown developed a great rapport while working together in Southern California this offseason and it’s just translated onto the field. While Larry Fitzgerald has shown he can make a tough catch in traffic and break free for 80 yards and Michael Floyd can go up and over anyone who challenges him, it’s Brown who can take the top off the defense. He has started showing up more and more on opposing game plans over the last few weeks, but after his game-winning touchdown catch Sunday, I’m sure he’ll be a point of emphasis going forward, which will spread secondaries thin and open up the middle and underneath for the rest of the Cardinals’ receivers.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) likely a game-time decision for Week 9

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

Two days after suffering a painful contusion to his lower back in the 20-17 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo remains in limbo for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

The good news, according to owner Jerry Jones, is that Romo didn’t suffer a season-ending injury, per results of a CT scan on Tuesday.

But Jones acknowledges Romo’s status remains in doubt because of questions concerning his pain tolerance and ability to function with the injury.

Jones said it will likely come down to a game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact:

Given the variety of weapons at his disposal, Brandon Weeden would be a Sneaky Start if Romo can't play. The Cardinals have been so-so against quarterbacks this year, checking in with the #15 QB aFPA through eight weeks.

Cards RB Stepfan Taylor (calf) to miss 'significant time'

AZCardinals.com - [Full Article]

Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor is expected to miss “significant time,” according to coach Bruce Arians, because of a calf injury.

Taylor didn’t have a carry against the Eagles before going out with the injury in the second half. But it now means that the top two backs that were supposed to support Andre EllingtonJonathan Dwyer and Taylor — are not around. And this is all while Ellington is playing through a bum foot. The Cardinals have explored adding a running back through trade but nothing has been that close to happening.

Fantasy Impact:

It's likely going to mean a bigger role for Ellington. Marion Grice — a rookie sixth-round pick of San Diego who was cut and on a practice squad before the Cards signed him — is the Ellington backup. At some point, the Cards will have to add a back to the 53-man roster and Kerwynn Williams is an option from their own practice squad, the story said.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 8. It appears that Sproles in on track to play in Week 8, though we wouldn’t want to start a gimpy player against a tough Cardinals defense. The game is late in the day, which only makes Sproles a less attractive play.

Cardinals WR John Brown (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Brown is a decent dart throw in a great matchup against the Eagles.
