Gresham played 29 (on 73) offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-14 defeat in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The breakdown of reps between Gresham and Ricky Seals-Jones depends on the week. On this occasion, the latter led the way with 46 snaps on offense, which he used to produce five catches (on nine targets) for 51 yards. Meanwhile, Gresham went without a target for the third time in seven games this season. He also is averaging just one target per contest in 2018, making him a fantasy nonentity in his ninth NFL campaign.

Gresham (back) is listed as active Sunday at Kansas City, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite elevating to full participation at Friday's practice, Gresham was listed as questionable for this game due to a back injury. By avoiding the inactive list Week 10, the 30-year-old will be available to the Cardinals offense, primarily as a blocker due to his meager mark of 1.2 targets per game this season.

Gresham (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in Kansas City, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham bumped up to full participation at Friday's practice, which is generally the basis for getting clearance to play. That said, the veteran tight end enters the weekend with a designation. If he's active Sunday, as he has been in each of the Cardinals' previous six games, Gresham will be little more than a fringe TE option due to his mark of 1.2 targets per outing.

Gresham (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham isn't carrying a designation of Achilles or heel for the first time since tearing the former Week 17 of last season. However, the 30-year-old tight end continues to tend to some bumps and bruises after enjoying a Week 9 bye. Look for Gresham to serve primarily in a blocking role due to the protection issues of the offensive line, with only the occasional target due to the presence of pass-catching TE Ricky Seals-Jones.

Gresham reeled in all three passes for 22 yards during Sunday's 18-15 win against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

A late addition to the Week 8 injury report, Gresham's heel injury was a callback to his season-ending torn Achilles from the 2017 finale. He brushed it off, though, and logged 31 offensive snaps versus 48 for fellow tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, who recorded two catches (on four targets) for 12 yards. Gresham's catch rate of 85.7 percent this season can't be denied, but with just seven targets in six games, his lack of volume keeps him on the outside looking in.

Gresham (heel) is active for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In Week 7 against the Broncos, Gresham earned more offensive snaps than fellow tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (39 to 29) for the first time this season. Nevertheless, Seals-Jones remains the preferred receiver at the position, recording 10 catches to Gresham's three in the veteran's five appearances so far. Expect much of the same with Gresham primarily focused on blocking duties.

Gresham (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham didn't make an appearance on the Cardinals' injury report until Friday, when he was listed as limited. He likely is dealing with the residual effects of his torn Achilles from Week 17 of last season, but his availability for Week 8 will be watched to see if he can play Sunday. If not, Ricky Seals-Jones would serve as the primary tight end.

Gresham wasn't targeted while playing 39 of 66 offensive snaps during Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Since returning to action Week 3, Gresham's practice reps have been monitored closely to ensure no aggravation of his Achilles. On Thursday, he officially earned more snaps in a given game than fellow tight Ricky Seals-Jones (29) for the first time this season, but the younger option again made an impact in the box score (two catches for 12 yards on four targets). On the season, Gresham has hauled in three of four passes for 46 yards in five games, indicating he's primarily used as a blocker at this stage in his career.

Gresham (Achilles) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Broncos, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After logging two limited practices Monday and Tuesday, Gresham was able to get in a full practice Wednesday. Gresham has yet to catch more than one pass and earn more than 30 yards in a game, but has logged over 25 offensive snaps in each of the last three games.

Gresham (Achilles) was a limited practice participant Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Among the Cardinals' options at tight end, Ricky Seals-Jones again dominated the targets -- six, which he turned into five catches for 69 yards -- and logged the most offensive snaps (39 of 58) during Sunday's 27-17 loss at Minnesota. Meanwhile, Gresham gathered in his only target for 26 yards, with his usage (30 on offense, or 51.7 percent) in line with his share from the previous two games. As such, he appears to have settled into a modest role as a blocker with the occasional look from rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. Expect much of the same Thursday versus the Broncos, assuming Gresham is active.
