Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap could miss Sunday's game because of a sprained knee. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap could miss Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles because of a sprained knee. Heap missed practice on Wednesday but coach Ken Wisenhunt said (via The Arizona Republic) that Heap was improving. If Heap can't play, Rob Housler would see more playing time for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Heap was having a good game in Week 2 against New England (5 catches, 62 yards) before being hit out of bounds by Patriots safety Steve Gregory. His fantasy value wasn't high to begin with but drops a little more because of the injury. There are too many proven commodities at tight end to worry about adding Housler.
