News: 1 day agoCardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that Green has a bone bruise in his knee and could miss at least one week, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Spin: Green missed some time on the Cardinals' second drive of the game and was seen with his left knee in a wrap before returning to the field. Later, in the third quarter, he recorded a drop and landed awkwardly at the end of the play, again grabbing at his left knee. Green went to the locker room at that point and didn't return, ending the contest with no catches on two targets. The veteran wideout hasn't been ruled out for Week 4 yet, but there doesn't appear to be much optimism surround his status.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Green re-signed with Arizona after a relatively successful 2021 campaign with the team. Green played 80% of the snaps during 16 active games and his 54-848-3 receiving line allowed a 41st-place finish in fantasy. He was primarily utilized as an intermediate/deep threat and his 15.7 YPR was 10th highest among wideouts. Green has ranked no lower than 13th at the position in end zone targets each of his last four seasons. He will play a lesser role this season after the acquisition of Marquise Brown, though he'll see a boost in work during DeAndre Hopkins' six-game suspension to open the season. Green's upside is limited at age 34, but he figures to hang on the flex radar while Hopkins is out.
