Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler missed his entire rookie season after suffering a finger injury in training camp, but the coaching staff still believes he has an 'intriguing skill set,' according to Kyle Odegard of the team's website.
'(Butler has) tons of ability. He's healthy. He's been working hard this offseason. He knows what we expect of him, and what we think he can be. I'm really excited when we can finally get him back on the field,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said.
Huddle Up: Kingsbury also told the team's website one of the reasons the Cardinals passed on receivers in the 2020 draft was that they remain intrigued by Butler, Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson. Even though Arizona goes four-wide more than most teams, it's unlikely any of them make any significant noise in fantasy this season barring injury to DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. As such, Butler and his fellow 2019 draft classmates figure to be nothing more than holds in dynasty leagues.

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (neck) returned to the team's game Thursday, Sept. 4, after leaving in the second quarter with a neck injury.
Huddle Up: Good to see Rodgers return, but the third-round pick out of Cal didn't catch a pass and wasn't targeted in the game. Veteran TE Andrew Quarless was targeted 4 times and finished with 3 receptions for 26 yards.
