Description: Cardinals tight end Rob Housler (ankle) practiced Wednesday for the first time this season and the team expects him to play Sunday against the Saints. SOURCE: AZCentral.com
Insight: The 6-foot-5 Housler was a sleeper pick this preseason but he suffered a high-ankle sprain. His presence will take fantasy value away from secondary targets Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts.

Description: Cardinals tight end Rob Housler (ankle) hasn't resumed practicing yet and will miss his second straight game Sunday, according to Darren Urban of AzCardinals.com.
Insight: The 6-foot-5 Housler was a sleeper pick this preseason but he suffered a high-ankle sprain. When he does return, he'll be fourth in the pecking order for targets behind Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts, but he should still be a TE2 in coach Bruce Arians' vertical scheme.

Description: Cardinals tight end Rob Housler has been diagnosed with the dreaded high-ankle sprain, according to coach Bruce Arians.
Insight: The 6-foot-5 Housler is a candidate for a breakout season as new quarterback Carson palmer is quick to utilize tight ends. A high-ankle sprain, however, likely means he won't be ready for the season opener.

Description: ESPN's NFC West blogger Mike Sando says it is "hard to miss" Cardinals tight end Rob Housler at training camp and adds that the locker room is buzzing about him.
Insight: The 6-foot-5 Housler reportedly has been displaying great speed and making big plays in practice. He's a breakout candidate this season -- remember, Brandon Myers caught 79 balls for 806 yards playing with Carson Palmer in Oakland last season.

Description: Cardinals beat writer Darren Urban has tight end Rob Housler at the top of his list for breakout candidates in Arizona.
Insight: Urban notes that Carson Palmer is the best QB Housler has played with and new head coach Bruce Arians uses his tight ends a lot (rookies Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen caught 71 balls for the Colts last season) Housler caught 45 for 417 yards last season and Urban believes 60+ receptions is possible.
