Budda Baker (thumb) set to return to action Sunday

Arizona Cardinals S Budda Baker will return Sunday against the Jets after undergoing surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament.

Fantasy Impact

Baker has been nothing short of fantastic for the Cardinals since being selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He is a two-time Pro Bowler (2017, 2019) and was a first-team All-Pro special teams selection as a rookie. The Cardinals take on a lowly New York Jets team this week and his return should help boost an Arizona D/ST that's coming off back-to-back losses at the hands of Detroit and Carolina.

Budda Baker (thumb) inactive for Week 4 against the Panthers

Budda Baker will not play in Sunday's game against the Panthers in Carolina.

Fantasy Impact

Baker recently had thumb surgery and although no timetable for his return has been officially announced, a lot of pundits are speculating that he should be back for Week 5.

Budda Baker (thumb) to undergo surgery on thumb at some point next week

Cardinals' safety Budda Baker plans to play in Week 3 vs. the Lions' but will undergo surgery to repair a UCL tear in his thumb in the coming week. He is expected to miss the teams Week 4 game against the Panthers' following surgery.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear when Baker suffered the tear but it is the same injury that sidelined Drew Brees for five weeks in 2019. Despite playing in Week 3, Baker will presumably miss the teams Week 4 game before returning in Week 5.
