Corey Clement has been released by the Arizona Cardinals.
Clement seemed like a good bet to make the roster given the lack of depth they have at the position, but the team is releasing him and he will hit the open market. Keaontay Ingram is pretty well locked in to be the backup RB for Arizona now, but James Conner should still be the one that gets the bulk of the work on this offense.
Corey Clement rushed seven times for 32 yards in the Cardinals' 20-19 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. Most of his work came in the fourth quarter after James Conner left due to injury.
Clement could be in for a substantial workload next week if Conner doesn't return. However, he'll have his work cut out for him against a tough Niners run defense.
The Arizona Cardinals signed Corey Clement to their active roster Saturday.
Clement has been active twice for the Cardinals this season, but has yet to log any playing time in either game. With Eno Benjamin recently waived, Clement should slide in behind James Conner and Keaontay Ingram against San Fransisco Monday.
Corey Clement has been elevated to the Cardinals' active roster from their practice squad.
Clement, who was on Arizona's practice squad, has been activated for the team's upcoming game against the Seattle Seahawks. This comes as a result of James Connor (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee) both being ruled out for this week. Clement will likely play second fiddle to Eno Benjamin, but he could still have a decent week for fantasy purposes.
Corey Clement was signed to the practice squad by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday.
Clement provides the Cardinals with some insurance after their backfield was hit with numerous injuries Sunday. The Cardinals also signed Ty’Son Williams, so there is a lot of competition for spots should any of the running backs on the active roster be unable to suit up this week. Clement likely will not carry any fantasy value right now.
