2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Mathieu won't necessarily produce like a top-25 IDP this year, but that would only be the case if the torn ACL/LCL injury he suffered in December limits his workload early in the season. He's expected...

Tyrann Mathieu: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Mathieu (knee) took part in 11-on-11 sessions at Thursday's practice, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Although he didn't initially make any hits, Mathieu eventually took down Ted Ginn following a catch-and-run, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Mathieu made his first appearance at practice Wednesday since suffering torn knee ligaments in December, after which coach Bruce Arians said that the organization would explore 11-on-11 work in a few days. Thus, Thursday's development is a surprising step for Mathieu and feeds the belief that he may suit up Week 1 versus the Chargers.
Mathieu (knee) was eased into practice Wednesday, participating in individual drills, the Arizona Republic reports.

Mathieu (knee) is expected to be activated from the PUP list Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With an earlier-than-expected return to practice, the dogged Mathieu continues to defy odds during his recovery from last December's torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. Active status in Week 1 against the Chargers is a distinct possibility, but the range for his first game action of the season lies somewhere in the Cardinals' first three outings. If he fails to play once the upcoming campaign kicks off, Rashad Johnson will handle the bulk of the free safety reps until Mathieu's health allows him to man the defensive backfield without restriction.
Mathieu (knee) is "pretty close" to coming off the Cardinals' PUP list within a week, the team's official website reports.

Although Mathieu (knee) hopes to practice in "two to three weeks," coach Bruce Arians doesn't share his optimism, the Cardinals' official site reports. "Our head coach, is he comfortable with me being out there?" explained Mathieu. "Am I 100 percent, and am I going to better our defense? I don't want to go out there if I'm not the guy I was last year."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Mathieu will pursue all avenues to play as soon as possible, but in the opening weeks of training camp, he's been contained to an outside field, where he holds individual drills. Such is his fate due to his status on the PUP list, where he's forced to reside as a result of his recovery from a torn ACL and LCL last December. Considering the 6-to-8 week timetable laid out by Mathieu himself at the start of camp, the upper bound (eight weeks) lands on a Week 3 divisional battle versus the 49ers. As long as he's sidelined, Rashad Johnson will be deemed the starting free safety, where he was featured on the Cardinals' initial depth chart, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
