Cardinals sign RB Michael Bush

The Arizona Cardinals are doing something about their troubled ground game.

The team on Tuesday announced the signing of veteran running back Michael Bush. In a corresponding move, the Cardinals released fellow runner Kerwynn Williams.

Bush, 30, hasn't played since making 13 appearances with the Bears last season as a short-yardage back who never lived up to the promise of the four-year deal he signed in 2012. The former Raiders starter rumbled for 977 yards with Oakland in 2011, but accounted for just 197 yards and three scores in the Windy City last autumn.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, in theory, Bush gives the Cardinals a physical presence they've missed this season. Andre Ellington is a tantalizing athlete, but Arizona's inability to sustain drives on the ground cost them dearly in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Coming out of Week 12, only the Raiders are churning out fewer yards per outing than the Cards. The Cards have had some tough matchups at least in terms of fantasy. Things get a bit easier the next two weeks, but for fantasy playoffs, it's the Rams and Seahawks followed by the 49ers in Week 17, all in the top-five. Bush likely won't have much fantasy value, but could potentially steal short-yardage TDs.

Marshawn Lynch 'got sick to his stomach,' but returned Week 12

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

It looked rather ominous when, after the first series of the game, Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch headed to the sideline, spending the next two Seattle possessions mostly sitting on a bench, wearing a beanie.

He then got up and rode on a stationary bike, and in the press box came the announcement he was again battling issues with his back.

The details, though, revealed that matters weren’t as dire as they might have seemed.

“He got sick to his stomach,’’ said Seattle coach Pete Carroll. “He was about ready to throw up over on the sidelines. So he had to wait it out.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Once he did, he returned to gut out 39 yards on 15 carries against an Arizona defense that came in ranked as the best in the NFL against the run. Lynch battled a back injury leading up to the game and it was speculated that was the reason he left the game before coming back. Carroll said the back is always an issue and always has tightness to get through, but that Carroll was told Lynch was sick.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton's left ankle is "fine."

With about 7 minutes left in Sunday's 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Stanton went to the sideline and got his left ankle taped.

"We're good," he said. "I was just scrambling, got rolled up a little bit, just kinda got caught in the pile. It wasn't anything major."

"It's not anything severe," Stanton said. "It's just precautionary for tape."

Fantasy Impact:

After it was taped, Stanton walked on it and could be seen testing it on the sideline. In the meantime, backup quarterback Logan Thomas started warming up, even going so far as taking snaps on the sideline from center Lyle Sendlein the story said. It's something to keep an eye on this week. The Cards have a potentially friendly matchup at Atlanta in a later-afternoon game.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back, probable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12. Lynch is good to go for a tough matchup with the Cardinals, though he typically runs very well in Seattle.

Friday, November 21, 2014, 6:26pm

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 12. Fitzgerald hopes to play through the sprain, though HC Bruce Arians called him “iffy” for Week 12. He’ll be a game-time decision. The Cardinals play late on Sunday, so he won’t be an attractive start, especially in a bad matchup with the Seahawks. In fact, we’re not all that excited about Michael Floyd or John Brown even if Fitz is out.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Ellington will be fine for a tough matchup against the Seahawks.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday. Lynch typically gets rest during the week.

Larry Fitzgerald expects to play through MCL sprain

Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald has a grade 2 MCL sprain. Expects to play vs. Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a big relief to the Cards. Fitzgerald was able to finish the game, yet the team has to be relieved the MRI results indicate it wasn’t serious. A grade 2 sprain is on a scale from 1-3. Most medical web sites say a grade 2 is a severe sprain or partial tear. Initial reports on Darren Sproles said he had a partial tear and he ended up missing a game along with a bye week. If Fitz is the one who said he will play, we'll have to at least wait and see how he progresses this week, as players are often too optimistic about their statuses. John Brown could see a bump in snaps if Fitzgerald were to miss a game or two.

Peyton Hillis (concussion) placed on IR

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Peyton Hillis is done for 2014.

The Giants announced Saturday that the veteran running back, who suffered a concussion in Week 10's loss to the Seahawks, has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

This is the second straight year that Hillis has been sidelined by a concussion. He missed a game last December with the same issue, also suffered against the Seahawks. He finishes the season with 26 carries for 115 yards to go with 10 receptions for 87 yards. The Giants replaced Hillis on the roster by signing linebacker Justin Anderson off the practice squad.

Hillis, 28, primarily served as a third-down back for New York.

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Williams will be rejoined in the backfield this week by Rashad Jennings, who is expected to return to action on Sunday against the 49ers after missing five games with an MCL sprain, the story said. The 49ers don't present a great matchup for the running game however. Jennings is expected to get the bigger workload.
