Gresham (back) returned to practice Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham has missed time in training camp with both a sore hamstring and tight back, which has seemingly allowed the oft-injured but now healthy Troy Niklas to surpass the veteran on the depth chart. It's unclear how much activity Gresham fit in Tuesday, but an appearance in Friday's preseason game at San Diego would clear up his own health.

Gresham is tending to back tightness, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham was second in the TE pecking order on the Cardinals' most recent unofficial depth chart, but injuries at various stages of training camp appear to be taking their toll. As evidence, Troy Niklas was expected to work with the first-team offense, whose two-TE alignment will also feature Darren Fells. Weeks remain for Gresham to regain his previous standing, but he may have to brush of the ailments in order to do so.

Gresham will miss his second consecutive practice Sunday due to a sore hamstring, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Bruce Arians relayed Saturday that an MRI on Gresham's hamstring was in store, but just one day later the head honcho said the tight end will "probably" be absent "two more days" before attempting a return to practice. As a result, the discomfort in Gresham's hamstring appears to be minor, and first-team reps should be in his imminent future.

The Cardinals and Gresham agreed to a contract Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham underwent back surgery last offseason and didn't find a home until a few days before the Cardinals kicked off training camp. Due to his conditioning at the time, he didn't pick up any snaps in the preseason, yet he was ready for Week 1. Missing one game due to a knee injury, he otherwise recorded a catch in all but four regular season contests and finished with an 18-223-1 line on 32 targets. The presence of Darren Fells will likely relegate Gresham to a reserve role in 2016, depending on any moves made within the TE group as the offseason progresses.

Gresham totaled 18 receptions (on 32 targets) for 223 yards and one touchdown in 15 games during the 2015 campaign.

EDGE Analysis

On the surface, the signing of Gresham at the outset of training camp appeared to be a perfect match due to the Cardinals' need at tight end and his previous relationship with Carson Palmer in Cincinnati. Gresham's initial practice was delayed, though, due to offseason surgery to repair a herniated disc, and multiple injuries served to quell his snap count, resulting in just 54 percent of the offensive snaps. The preceding allowed Darren Fells to lead the way at the position in every category but targets, which may be enough to allow Gresham to walk as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Gresham hauled in two of three targets for 36 yards during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham appeared to be gaining momentum within the Cardinals' offense on multiple occasions this season, only to sustain an ailment. The most recent occurred in Week 13 at St. Louis, from which he suffered a knee injury and sat out the following game. In the meantime, he's recorded just three receptions (on five targets) for 43 yards, with Sunday's multi-catch outing marking his fifth in 15 contests. Similarly constrained within the system, fellow tight end Darren Fells also has five such performances to his name, but visits to the end zone have been more frequent this season (three, versus one for Gresham).

Gresham (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham proved his health with back-to-back full practices to end the week, but a lack of targets (27 in 13 appearances) doesn't lend itself to those seeking fantasy titles.

Gresham (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham was limited at Wednesday's practice, but he is set to play Sunday after practicing fully both Thursday and Friday. While Gresham will play Sunday, don't expect much from him fantasy-wise: Gresham tallied just two catches over the last four games.

Gresham (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With his knee injury waning, Gresham is seeking his first reception since Week 13. While Darren Fells stands in his way, tight ends in Arizona are multi-purpose, meaning targets aren't always on the weekly docket. No matter, Gresham will face a Packers defense Sunday that has given up both the 11th most yards (805) and touchdowns (seven) to opposing tight ends this season.

Gresham (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham last recorded a catch in Week 13, when he sustained a knee injury that forced a DNP against the Vikings on a short week. In his return Sunday at Philadelphia, he wasn't targeted while logging 32 of 76 offensive snaps. Meanwhile, Darren Fells continue to serve as the No. 1 tight end, corralling all three passes directed his way for 54 yards. If Gresham's knee remains less than 100 percent, he'll likely continue playing second fiddle to Fells.
