John Brown returns, Kerwynn active

Posted by Darren Urban on December 24, 2017 – 1:02 pm

Wide receiver John Brown, who has been dealing with a toe injury that has kept him out four games, will return to the field today against the Giants — which hopefully, combined with Drew Stanton back at quarterback, will aid a passing game and an offense that is trying to get a touchdown for the first time in more than 10 quarters.

Running back Kerwynn Williams and linebacker Karlos Dansby, both of whom were questionable to play, are also both active.

A full list of the Cards’ inactives here on Christmas Eve:

— QB Matt Barkley

— WR Chad Williams (illness)

— LB Gabe Martin (hamstring)

— LB Josh Bynes (ankle)

— G Earl Watford (ankle)

— TE Troy Niklas (ankle)

— DL Xavier Williams

    JTDG ~ ~ Whaaaaat? One more run?

    I know you haven’t lost your mind, but someone has spiked your eggnog with something mysterious. 2016 must be BA’s swan song…if he returns, it will be a disaster…the guys have just stop hearing his bluster long ago…his leadership has run its course…subliminal mutiny?

    As for Palmer, he just may return for the $$$ and end up on IR to collect his gold. No one would blame him; the cash is SERIOUS, and he could pray to remain healthy. ((Frankly, a more mobile QB will be better for a competitive Offense…our Division won’t get easier))

    FITZ ~ ?? Got an easy feelin’ as the Eagles sing that he will return. This is his life and he’s good at it. There will be no feeling in his mind that attaches him to anyone else here that may leave. He’s survived some pathetic QBs and still posts ridiculous numbers…can’t imagine the stats if he had consistent QBs…!!

    Go Cards! Skin the ‘Skins..

    OK, is anyone else REALLY ready to be done with Gresham? I am. Tired of his hot-headedness and the penalties. His play doesn’t make him worth it. Adios, Jermaine. You are just another veteran player that this team needs to move on from.

    Fitz is putting on a show. His last in as Cardinal home jersey. How I will miss his pure professionalism, work ethic, desire to win, athleticism, community help .. everything.

    I will miss Fitz.

    Larry Fitzgerald!

    I will miss him in a Cardinal uniform. Pure professional. Role model.

    Of all the Cards that will leave either due to retirement, trade, cut, etc… Larry Fitz I will miss the most, for so many many reasons.

    Well, halle-friggin-lujiah – a touchdown. I’d almost forgotten what one looked like. And was there any doubt that when we finally found the end-zone again, it would be via Larry Fitzgerald? Of course not. That would have been about the safest bet you could have found anywhere.

    And also of course, Fitz is the only WR on this team who is able to do ANYTHING. This organization better be ready to pay him anything they have to to get him back for next year. Because if he goes, there goes our our entire passing offense, no matter who the hell the QB is.

    Lar-ry, Lar-ry, Lar-ry! This can’t be the end! We need you! I mean everyone who likes football!

    Cards obviously need a # 1 QB. Teddy Bridgewater will be free agent — get him!

    As far as college QBs coming out — look at Allen from Wyoming. It is one thing having a class of McDonald All-Americans surrounding you, and then there is another level of preforming at a high level with walk-ons surrounding you. Wyoming is not blessed with the recruitment prowess as UCLA, SC, or OK.

    Get Bridgewater and draft Josh Allen (6′ 5″ 235 lb with a rocket arm).

    Keep Blaine Gabbert, in the event Bridgewater or Allen is not available. Gabbert could serve as a good # 2.

    Here is my list (by position) of players worth returning:

    O-Line:
    1st String: Humphrey, Boone (if he returns)
    2nd string: Wetzel, Watson (if he returns)

    TEs:
    Niklas
    Ricky Seals-Jones

    WRs:

    As for special teams, I don’t either Lee or Dawson will return, due to age, and in Dawson’s case —- ineffectiveness.

    Too bad we can’t play all of our games against teams that are mathematically out of the playoffs by Thanksgiving.

    Bring on the Browns!

    Stanton, were the guys in red!

    OMG….is it…..could it be??? Was that Robert Nkemdiche actually making a big play that will actually show up in a stat column somewhere???

    Hey, good for him. And I think I’ll leave it at that. A fumble return for a TD is nice but, really, what we NEED is QB pressures, some sacks, tackles for losses or no gain, him blowing up the middle of the line of scrimmage.

    Would sure be sweet to go into Seattle next week and knock them out of the playoffs…..damn, I wish Palmer were playing!

    Today’s riddle.
    Which is the luckiest team on earth, who can win a game with less than 80 yards rushing and less than 100 yards passing?
    Yes, yes you are right……
    But we are coming to end the nightmare… Next week… Rise up red sea and finish the chickens! One more important game for us! Let’s finish this!

    Nice win at home. We beat a HOF QB.
    I don’t know what this game means in the long run- but the guys were motivated to win and they played hard.
    Better late than never.

    Robert Nkemdiche has played poorly his first two years. So, Robert picks up a fumble and romps a big 21 yards for a TD against the Giants to seal the game. And Robert then flips the ball into the stands ???? Did that ball belong in RN’s trophy room or will Robert be doing TD returns on a regular basis?

    Though Fitz’ return next year is far from certain…..I’m kinda surprised that so many people seem to we just saw his last game at UoP.

    Larry is still so obviously capable of playing at a high level…..and we know HE knows that….I’m just hoping that knowing he can play at a high level will be the deciding factor in coming back for 2018. I can’t say I know how important his numbers are to him…..but if they ARE, why would he walk away when he can continue his assault on the record books by doing nothing more than having another “average” Larry Fitzgerald season??

    No one will probably ever catch Jerry Rice. His numbers might just stand forever. Because there may never be another WR who is THAT talented, who plays THAT long, and gets to play the majority of his career with the greatest QB in NFL history. BUT if Fitz wants to go another season, he might just put himself 2nd only to Rice, ahead of all others, and he might be just as un-touchable as Rice for YEARS to come.

    For my own selfish reasons, I hope achieving that is very important to him.

    I will never want to stop seeing this man play. And watching him play today, in Week 16 of his 14th season – and a losing season at that – the man shows NO sign of slowing down in any aspect of his game. He also shows NO sign of losing his love for playing. So….I’ll take those as good signs and reasons to believe he will suit up again in 2018.

    And, wow, I know the Giants are pretty bad but this team pitching a shut out today – in Week 16 of a losing season and as beat up as they are – is really impressive. REALLY impressive. That shows a lot of heart and a lot of character.

    Seattle needing a win next week – IN Seattle – wouldn’t bode well for any team that has to go there to play them. But the way this Cardinals team is playing, I know they are gonna go after it and play as hard as they can. Can’t ask for more than that.

    But….damn, I wish Palmer were playing!!

    Scott…
    If you have paid close attention to what Fitz has consistently said, you know that he is no longer interested in breaking in a new QB/HC,that he still feels good enough to play at a high level, and enjoys living in the moment. So, if BA doesn’t comeback bc of his health, but Carson does, to mentor a new QB, but the Cards get a HC that Fitz knows like Todd Haley or Todd Bowles, I would think that would help tip the scales in favor of a return. He is obviously still playing at a very high level, when at the age of 34 he is creating new records & has been nominated for Clutch Player of the Week!
