Marquise Brown, Michael Wilson Miss Practice

Wednesday, November 29, 3:24 PM

AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban said that he did not see Arizona Cardinals wide receivers Marquise Brown (heel) or rookie Michael Wilson (shoulder) on the practice field on Wednesday during the portion open to the media. The Cardinals are likely just giving Brown some extra rest after he played through a heel issue in the Week 12 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. After two straight disappointing performances with quarterback Kyler Murray back, Brown bounced back to lead the team on six catches (12 targets) for 88 yards. It was a good sign for his rest-of-season outlook now that Murray is back. Wilson, meanwhile, has missed three of the last four games due to a nagging shoulder injury that he aggravated. With a Week 14 bye coming for the Cards, it would make sense to hold the 23-year-old out for another game.

George Pickens Comes Down With Deep Ball Against Bengals

Sunday, November 26, 10:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens finished with three receptions for 58 yards on five targets in a Week 12 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. He gained 43 yards on a perfect deep pass from quarterback Kenny Pickett in the fourth quarter. Although Pickens failed to come through with a great fantasy performance, his presence was still felt as Pittsburgh posted 421 yards of offense. The Steelers were willing to take shots down the field in their first contest since parting ways with former offensive coordinator Matt Canada, which should raise Pickens' weekly upside going forward. The 22-year-old will look to capitalize on a soft matchup against the Arizona Cardinals next week.
