Rucker (calf) is considered doubtful to play in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Giants, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rucker exited Monday night's season-opening win with a calf injury, which could keep him sidelined for another week. Should that prove to happen, newly-signed veteran Tommy Kelly figures to get more reps on the Cardinals' defensive line this weekend.
Rucker is the likely candidate to take over the starting spot vacated by stalwart defensive lineman Darnell Dockett (knee), the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dockett suffered a season-ending ACL tear during Monday's practice, opening the door for Rucker and rookie Kareem Martin to handle the bulk of the remaining reps. Rucker garnered decent run in both 2011 and 2012, averaging 46 tackles and four sacks per season. However, in his first year with the Cardinals, he contributed just 11 tackles (nine solo) and one sack. Expect the former rather than the latter to mimic his output heading into Week 1, though Martin could receive more snaps on clear passing downs as his rookie campaign wears on.
Rucker agreed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Thursday, espn.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Rucker was signed as a free agent this spring away from division rival Cincinnati. He posted career-highs of 44 tackles and four sacks in 2011 and will likely play in a rotation with fellow free agent signee Juqua Parker at defensive end opposite Jabaal Sheard. Rucker is more of a run-stuffer than a pass-rusher so his fantasy stock in IDP leagues is limited.

2009

The Bengals lost both Robert Geathers and Rucker to knee injuries on a Thursday night game in Pittsburgh; those injuries typified the Bengals' pass rush problems.

2008

Rucker will serve as a backup defensive end who could see action from time to time, especially with Antwan Odom's ankle at less the 100 percent.

2007

Rucker's only contribution in 2006 was to be added to the list of Bengals arrested. He missed the season with a shoulder injury and is missing training camp with a leg injury.
