Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner could return from his knee injury in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons. 

Conner’s practice window was activated this week as he looks to return from injured reserve after he was placed there ahead of Week 6. 

With Kyler Murray expected to return this week, the Cardinals offense could be at full strength for the first time all season in Week 10.

James Conner OVER 54.0 rushing yards

This could be a big game for James Conner, who was putting up solid numbers rushing the ball earlier this season with Joshua Dobbs at quarterback. 

With Kyler Murray back, the entire Cardinals’ offense should see an uptick. This season, Conner has cleared 54 rushing yards three times, and he had put up six carries for 46 yards the game he was injured in during Week 5. 

With Emari Demercado still not practicing, Conner could be in for a big workload if he returns this week.

The Cardinals also released running back Tony Jones Jr. – a sign that they could be opening up a roster spot for Conner.
