The Arizona Cardinals announced Week 17 inactives and James Conner is officially inactive for their matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Conner was listed as questionable this week due to a heel injury. He did not practice before getting in a limited session on Friday.
There had been optimism Conner would be able to return this week. Instead he’ll spend a third straight game inactive. That means Chase Edmonds will be in line for all the running back work again. Last week, Edmonds had a big game with 127 total yards, 8 catches and a TD. The Cowboys should be a tougher matchup, however, since last week the Colts were missing key players on defense. Arizona’s offense overall has struggled but Edmonds should remain a solid RB2 play with RB1 upside.
