RB - FA
Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said RB Darrel Williams is expected to return from injured reserve at some point.
Williams was placed on the IR after Week 8, so he will first be eligible to return in Week 12. With the release of Eno Benjamin, Keaontay Ingram is currently the backup to James Conner. It sounds like Williams has a chance to return some time in the next few weeks.
The Arizona Cardinals placed Darrel Williams on IR on Wednesday.
Williams had just returned from a knee injury in Week 8 when he injured his hip against the Vikings this past weekend. Kliff Kingsbury is hoping James Conner will be ready to return for the Seahawks game. Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram are the other players in the Cardinals backfield while Williams is sidelined.
Darrel Williams was sidelined at Cardinals practice on Wednesday.
This seems to be a new injury as Williams was dealing with a knee injury when he missed Weeks 6 and 7. James Conner was limited at practice on Wednesday. This backfield will be worth monitoring the rest of this week.
Darrel Williams rushed five times for eight yards and caught two of his three targets for six yards in Arizona's loss to Minnesota on Sunday.
Williams returned to the lineup and played 21 snaps to Eno Benjamin's 50 in Week 8. He may have been limited after missing two games with a knee injury and could see more action in Week 9 if James Conner remains sidelined. Williams is no better than a stash in deep leagues right now, as he appears to be third on the Cardinal's running back depth chart.
Darrel Williams is officially active for Arizona's Week 8 game against Minnesota.
He has not played since Week 5 while dealing with a knee injury. Even with James Conner ruled out, Williams's presence downgrades Eno Benjamin slightly, and Keaontay Ingram becomes risky to start in any format.
