The Arizona Cardinals announced Week 17 inactives and running back James Conner is officially active for their matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Conner was listed as a game-time decision heading into Sunday’s matchup due to a heel injury and was a limited participant in practice throughout the week.

This is a positive development for the Cards to get Conner back on the field as they fight for the NFC West title and a home game in next week’s Wild Card round. They especially needed him this week considering backup Chase Edmonds is listed as out dealing with injured ribs and a toe injury.

Conner has been out since the team’s Week 15 upset loss to the Detroit Lions, a game where he’s taken eight carries for 39 yards. He was a touchdown machine before going down, rushing for 700 yards and 14 TD’s in 14 games before the injury. Fantasy managers should reinsert him into the lineup this week.
