Tyrann Mathieu plans to face Seahawks with cast on left thumb


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"I think I'm healed up enough to finish out the season," Mathieu said. "So hopefully I don't have any more setbacks."

Mathieu has 29 tackles and an interception in 11 games.

Tyrann Mathieu won't face Chargers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu is inactive for Monday night's game against the Chargers. Mathieu is coming back from a severe knee injury he suffered last December.

Cardinals release final injury report before Monday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Linebacker Alex Okafor has been ruled out by the Cardinals for their Monday night game against San Diego. He was a no-go in practice this week with a thigh injury.

Tyrann Mathieu status for Monday game still up in the air


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) A knee issue that had Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu listed as probable for the Monday night game against the Chargers now has him considered a game-time decision, according to Bruce Arians.

Mathieu started 11 of the 13 games in which he played as a rookie with Arizona last season and contributed 68 tackles and two picks.


Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mathieu hopes to graduate to team drills in the next couple days. "There are going to be days where I get sore," Mathieu said.

Tyrann Mathieu 'close' to resuming drills


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2014) Cardinals assistant athletic trainer Chad Cook said defensive back Tyrann Mathieu is "close" to resuming football activities as he works his way back from a torn ACL and LCL suffered in December. 

Mathieu says he's at "60, 70 percent" running according to a video he's featured in on the team's official website. He's lifting weights as normal and has begun to do some cutting in his rehab but still seems like a longshot to participate in team drills come training camp.
