Christian Kirk, WR | ARI

Christian Kirk is sidelined with a "minor deal," but coach Kliff Kingsbury hopes he is back "soon."

That was all Kingsbury volunteered after Kirk missed the past few practices. Coming off back-to-back rocky seasons following his promising rookie campaign, Kirk can't afford much missed practice time after the Cardinals signed A.J. Green and used a Day 2 pick on Rondale Moore. Kirk hasn't really developed an ADP this summer, typically going north of WR70. That sadly feels right for a player who once seemed destined for more.

Keith Kirkwood, WR | CAR

Keith Kirkwood has been discharged from the hospital.

Kirkwood's stay was thankfully short after he had to be rushed off in an ambulance following an awful hit from supposed teammate JT Ibe. Ibe has already been waived from the team. Already a 53-man roster long shot, the cheap shot Kirkwood has taken has sadly probably compromised his odds of making the team.

Tarik Cohen, RB | CHI

Speaking Tuesday, Bears coach Matt Nagy suggested Tarik Cohen (ACL, PUP) was “weeks away” from being activated.

This is just the latest in a string of bad news for Cohen, who remains on the PUP list after tearing his ACL in Week 3 of last season. Cohen reportedly dealt with knee stiffness during minicamp, and the issues appear to have no end in sight. At this point, his Week 1 availability seems like a real question. In the meantime, Damien Williams will serve as David Montgomery’s backup with sixth-round rookie Khalil Herbert slotting in as Chicago’s RB3.
