Gresham suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals' season ended Sunday, but this injury to Gresham will likely carry over into the 2018 season. He finished this past season with 298 yards and two touchdowns, and still has three years remaining on his current contract.

Gresham is questionable to return to Sunday's contest at Seattle due to an Achilles injury, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since entering the NFL in 2010, Gresham has dealt with the occasional injury, but the Achilles is a new affliction for the 29-year-old tight end. The Cardinals will move on with Troy Niklas and Ricky Seals-Jones at TE for the time being.

Gresham (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham was unable to take the field last weekend due to an illness, which proceeded to limit his practice reps Wednesday and Thursday. However, the shackles were removed Friday, as he handled every drill thrown his way. Upon his return, Gresham is a good bet among secondary receiving options to succeed with reinstated starting QB Drew Stanton. In Stanton's two starts this season, Gresham recorded a touchdown on both occasions in the midst of seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 87 yards.

The Cardinals have downgraded Gresham (illness) to out for Sunday's matchup against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

The writing appeared to be on the wall regarding Gresham's status for Week 15 after the team promoted fellow tight end Gabe Holmes from the practice squad Saturday. Gresham's absence will mark his first since Week 2. Troy Niklas and the aforementioned Holmes will now provide depth behind No. 1 tight end Ricky Seals-Jones.

Gresham (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham was a new addition to the injury report this week and was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. The veteran tight end seems to be trending in the wrong direction at this point, which would leave Troy Niklas as the Cardinals' No. 2 tight end if Gresham is unable to suit up Sunday.

Gresham didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham wasn't on the Cardinals' injury report Wednesday, so the illness looks like something that came about over night. If Gresham is able to recover in time for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, he won't be a major part of the Cardinals' passing attack with Ricky Seals-Jones having recently supplanted the veteran as quarterback Blaine Gabbert's go-to option at tight end. Over the Cardinals' past four games, Gresham has recorded seven receptions for 67 yards on nine targets.

Gresham caught both of his targets for 27 yards during Sunday's 12-7 win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham is nothing if not consistent. He's caught exactly two passes in seven of his last 10 games and has caught just one in two games. He maintains a stranglehold on Arizona's top job, with 49 of 65 offensive snaps logged on Sunday, but watch out. Ricky Seals-Jones is climbing up. He had 18 snaps on Sunday, up from single digits just a few weeks ago, and seems to be the future at the position for the Cardinals.

Gresham caught two of three targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 32-16 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

How valuable are snaps? Not very in Arizona. Gresham, again, bested talented newcomer Ricky Seals-Jones in offensive snaps on Sunday 33 to 15, but Seals-Jones came through where it counted. Over the past three weeks, Seals-Jones leads Gresham in catches (nine to five), targets (16 to seven), yards (170to 40) and touchdowns (three to zero). Gresham might still get starter-level snaps in Arizona, but his limited role in the passing offense has been exacerbated by Seals-Jones' arrival

Gresham earned 50 of the Cardinals' 73 offensive snaps during Sunday's 27-24 victory against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham reached the end zone in Weeks 9 and 10, marking his only touchdowns of the season. With Blaine Gabbert under center the past two games, Gresham has led all Cardinals tight ends in usage but gathered in just three of four targets for 23 yards combined. Meanwhile, undrafted free agent TE Ricky Seals-Jones has displayed a strong rapport with Gabbert, likely due to working together on the scout team for much of the season. As evidence, Seals-Jones' 25 snaps on offense the last two weeks have translated to seven catches for 126 yards and three TDs. Although Gresham's workload is unlikely to decrease moving forward, his ability as a blocker may inhibit his chances to contribute as a receiver.

Gresham was targeted once and recorded a 10-yard catch in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

You have to feel for Gresham. The former first-round pick was scoreless through the first six games of the season before going on a two-game touchdown streak to enter Sunday. All of a sudden, the new young gun -- Ricky Seals-Jones -- pops off two touchdowns in one game and Gresham is relegated to a single catch. Gresham's starting gig is far from on the line, he logged 45 offensive snaps to Seals-Jones' eight, but his production could keep taking hits if Seals-Jones heats up.
