Rondale Moore will be a game-time decision for Week 5 vs. Eagles

We break down the news that Rondale Moore has a knee injury. What it means for Week 5 and beyond.

Friday PM update: Head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters on Friday that he wants to see Moore warm up before deciding on his Week 5 status.

Friday update: Moore was practicing on Friday, per Darren Urban. This is a good sign for his availability after getting a limited tag on Thursday. The injury report should help us out later today.

The Arizona Cardinals just got Rondale Moore back from a hamstring injury and now he pops up with a new one on Thursday’s injury report. This time he’s dealing with a knee injury. The specifics are unknown, so this could be a wide range on the disaster scale. We really won’t know until Friday. If he’s not out there practicing Friday, he likely suffered an injury during practice on Friday that will keep him out of the game. If he is practicing, he probably just felt a twinge and they wanted to be cautious with him for the rest of practice. We shall see.

Fantasy football implications

The Cardinals continue to have trouble at wide receiver, but Marquise Brown has been the stalwart, putting up strong numbers so far this season. After him it’s been a mixed bag, with tight end Zach Ertz and Moore’s replacement, Greg Dortch, getting some fantasy relevant production. If Moore is out, Dortch gets some PPR upside.
