The Cardinals will play the Texans in Houston on Sunday with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
Each week in the Saturday blog, we run down a list of key fantasy players, by position, who appear in the Friday injury report along with the injured body part as listed on the report, player status and any relevant developments or insight. The primary fantasy positions are covered (quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end).
Brandon Allen Youth Jersey
Michael Conforto Authentic Jersey This season, at the end of each positional section, there is a subgrouping of players, Players off game-status injury report. The probable tag no longer exists, so players who would have been listed as probable in previous seasons are now simply removed from the report. This means there will be players who appear in the practice injury reports during the week but will not appear on the game-status report Friday, since they are presumed active for game day. They are included in this blog so that fantasy owners can see where players who were on the practice injury report during the week have been upgraded in advance of the games.
Joe Staley is back.
Despite fracturing his orbital bone just two weeks ago during the team’s Week 8 loss to the Eagles, the 49ers left tackle is set to return Sunday against the Giants after a brief absence to heal.
Yeah, I’m playing, Staley said Friday, via USA Today. Feels fine. I knew was playing on like Tuesday, but I didn’t know if I was supposed to give it away or anything. I was kind of being a butthead to you guys. But yeah, I’m playing. It’s good. I saw the doctor on Tuesday, everything was good.
Staley was injured in Philadelphia when Kevin Labanc Youth jersey defensive tackle Fletcher Cox blocked Staley during cornerback Jalen Mills’ second-quarter pick six. Staley confirmed the next day that he suffered a fracture on the play, but will not require surgery.
