Greg Toler: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Toler is expected to be ready for the start of training camp but his recovery is worth monitoring as the Colts are thin in the secondary heading into the 2015 NFL draft.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)During Saturday's win against the Chiefs, Toler aggravated a groin injury that previously held him out between Weeks 9 and 15. He'll finish the season with 23 tackles (17 solo), seven passes defended, and one interception in nine games (seven starts). In his absence, expect Josh Gordy and Darius Butler to garner more snaps than normal.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Prior to exiting the game, Toler was burned by Kansas City's Donnie Avery for a 79-yard touchdown. Toler missed seven games with a groin injury earlier this season, before returning for Weeks 16 and 17. His absence should lead to more snaps for Darius Butler and Josh Gordy as the Colts try to fight their way back from an early 24-7 deficit.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Toler is expected to be in the hunt to start at a cornerback spot. He started two games at corner for the Cardinals in 2012 and had two interceptions, one of which he returned 102 yards for a touchdown.
Toler missed all of 2011 with a torn ACL, and will battle free-agent acquisition William Gay for the starting corner spot opposite Patrick Peterson in 2012.
Toler ended 2010 with 90 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions. He should start at the right corner position.
Toler will begin as the frontrunner for the Week 1 spot in competition that includes Mike Adams, Rashad Barksdale, Trumaine McBride and rookie Jorrick Calvin. Toler was a fourth-round pick of the Cards in 2009 and his lack of Division 1 college experience led to his tumble down the draft board, but Arizona is optimistic that he might be a diamond in the rough.
Emboldened by their success drafting a small-school defensive back (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) in 2008, the Cardinals reached even further by selecting Toler out of tiny St. Paulís College in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Toler isnít expected to start as a rookie like Rodgers-Cromartie did. Toler is a long-term project with great speed that will probably need some time to adapt to the NFL. He will compete with veteran Ralph Brown and fellow rookie Rashad Johnson for the Cardinalsí nickelback position during training camp.
