Andre Roberts injury update: No Wednesday practice is bad news for fantasy owners

Christian Petersen

With John Skelton back at starter, he could use the extra help. But will he get it? We break down the fantasy implications.

Surprising, but true: Until he missed Sunday's game, Andre Roberts was the Cardinals leading receiver. He might not have a chance to re-take the lead from Larry Fitzgerald after missing Wednesday practice with an ankle injury.

Roberts has 50 catches for 639 yards this season and five touchdowns, but could miss his second straight game as Arizona prepares to face the Seahawks in Seattle. The Cardinals earlier announced that John Skelton will go back to being the starting quarterback over Ryan Lindley, while Kevin Kolb has hit a stand-still in his recovery from a ribs injury.

Fantasy Take: There is no passing game in Arizona but even less so without Roberts. The Seahawks defense has been leaky at times and will be without corner Brandon Browner (suspension) but this is not looking like a good week to start Roberts. Even if he is active, he may be limited.
