Fitzgerald, Mathieu among notable Cardinals probables Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Cardinals have ruled guard Jonathan Cooper (wrist) out, quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) doubtful and wide receiver Jaron Brown (toe) questionable for Sunday's home game against Seattle.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: Outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (knee), defensive end Calais Campbell (hip), guard Paul Fanaika (ankle), wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee), inside linebacker Larry Foote (knee), safety Tyrann Mathieu (thumb), tackle Jared Veldheer (ankle) and running back Kerwynn Williams (knee).


Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams limited Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, the team announced.

Williams has shared touches with Stepfan Taylor with Andre Ellington out for the season but has amassed 175 rushing yards on 34 carries over the last two weeks. If his knee issue keeps him out Sunday, Taylor and Marion Grice would likely handle most of the touches at the position.


Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor split carries vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor shared the workload Thursday, with Williams receiving 15 carries and Taylor getting 14 carries in the team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15.

Williams was the star of the rushing attack last week and led the team in rushing again Thursday, gaining 75 yards on his 15 carries while adding 11 more yards on two receptions. But he shared the ball virtually evenly in the running game with Taylor, who racked up 61 yards on 14 carries while not receiving a target in the passing game. Neither player scored a touchdown, but neither team was able to reach the end zone on a night where defenses reigned.

The Cardinals could opt to continue the time share in Week 16 when the Seahawks come to town. If quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) ends up missing that game, the offense could lean heavily on Williams and Taylor again.


Cardinals eager to get RB Kerwynn Williams 'in space'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton said he wasn't surprised by running back Kerwynn Williams' breakout game Week 14. Williams, who had never before gotten an NFL carry, ran 19 times for 100 yards in the win over Kansas City.

Williams is a 5-8, 198-pounder out of Utah State who went in the seventh round of the 2013 draft to the Colts. With Andre Ellington (hernia) out for the season, Williams and Stepfan Taylor are Arizona's top two backfield options.

"We're trying to get [Williams] in space and give him the ability because he has that home run-hitting capability," Stanton said. "Within that, you try and get him in space. You try to give him the opportunity to go out there and showcase his ability. He’s so smooth in and out of cuts and makes stuff look easy.

"Can get into top-end speed very quickly. He can take them to that next gear just coming right out of a cut, which is a great advantage to have. He’s just another example of one guy goes down and an opportunity presents itself and he steps up and answers the bell."

Williams visits the Rams on Thursday.


Kerwynn Williams goes from practice squad to 100-yard rusher


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Two days after being promoted from the practice squad, Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams ran 19 times for 100 yards (5.3 ypc) in the win over the Chiefs. The second-year pro out of Utah State appeared in one game with the Chargers last season.

Williams was not targeted in the passing game. With Andre Ellington (sports hernia) going on injured reserve, Williams could continue to see a heavy workload Thursday at St. Louis.


Kerwynn Williams emerges in Andre Ellington's absence


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) With Andre Ellington sidelined with a season-ending injury, it was Stepfan Taylor who got the start for the Cardinals in Week 14 against the Chiefs. However, recently-signed reserve Kerwynn Williams was ultimately the team's go-to option in the 17-14 win.

Williams who had no career rushing attempts entering play Sunday, became the fourth running back in as many weeks to top the century mark against the Chiefs. He rushed the ball 19 times for 100 yards, the only back on the team to manage 20 yards or more than six carries.

Williams was a non-factor in the passing game, but Taylor made little impact himself as well. With Ellington going on injured reserved, the Cardinals are going to have to turn to these backs for the rest of the season. Williams impressed Sunday, but he was also cut less than two weeks ago, before returning from the practice squad two days ago, so it's hard to say how high they are on him. 

Williams looks like the back to own at this point, but his limited track record obviously makes it tough to rely on him down the stretch. Still, he is clearly a must-add player on waivers, given how well he ran the ball Sunday. The Cardinals have another tough matchup on the way in Week 15, however, with the Rams on the way. 


Cardinals release Michael Bush, Matthew Mulligan


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Cardinals waived running back Michael Bush and tight end Matthew Mulligan Friday, reports the team’s website.

The Cardinals signed Bush to help provide backfield depth, but Bush never received a carry for the Cardinals.

With two open roster spots, the Cardinals promoted running back Kerwynn Williams from the team's practice squad and activated linebacker Matt Shaughnessy from short-term IR.

The Cardinals play the Chiefs Week 14.


Report: Cardinals sign RB Michael Bush, release two others


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Cardinals have reportedly signed running back Michael Bush on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Bush has not played in 2014 and averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 2013. His best season occurred in 2011 when he rushed for 977 yards and scored seven touchdowns for the Raiders.

To make room for Bush, the Cardinals released running back Kerwynn Williams  from the 53-man roster and Kelvin Palmer from the practice squad. The Cardinals play at Atlanta Week 13.

Cardinals promote Kerwynn Williams, release Bruce Gaston


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) The Cardinals promoted running back Kerwynn Williams from the practice squad Saturday and released defensive tackle Bruce Gaston.

Chris Rainey out, Kerwynn Williams in for Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) The Cardinals have cut running back Chris Rainey from the practice squad and signed former Colts back Kerwynn Williams to take that spot.

Rainey has experienced a drop in his career since playing in all 16 games with Pittsburgh in 2012 and rushing for 102 yards on 26 carries.

Kerwynn Williams leads Colts ground game


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) The Colts running game was not that exciting in Saturday's preseason blowout win over the Browns. In fact, it was Kerwynn Williams leading the way with nine carries for 37 yards in the 27-6 win.

With Andrew Luck throwing the ball around, starter Vick Ballard led the Colts with 10 touches, but finished with just 33 rushing yards. With Ahmad Bradshaw nearing a return, Ballard needs to continue making impact.

Backup running back Donald Brown finished the game with five carries for 35 yards. None of the RBs for the Colts scored in the win.

Donald Brown, Delone Carter on roster bubble?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/3/2013) With Ahmad Bradshaw joining Vick Ballard in the Indianapolis backfield, ESPN believes Donald Brown and Delone Carter are vying for one roster spot in training camp and preseason this summer. This is in part because Colts rookie Kerwynn Williams should land a job with the team coming out of the preseason.
