Cole Kmet, TE (CHI)

Groin no longer bothersome

Kmet (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Kmet trended in the right direction throughout the week, as he missed practice Wednesday before upgrading to a limited session Thursday and practicing fully Friday to gain clearance. The 22-year-old tight end is still searching for his first touchdown of the season, but he has topped 65 receiving yards twice in the past three games after failing to reach 50 in any of his first 24 NFL contests. With quarterback Justin Fields (ribs) doubtful, Kmet will likely be catching passes from Andy Dalton against Arizona.
