News: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Abraham did not pass his concussion test Tuesday. Impact: Though Abraham rejoined the Cardinals on Tuesday after briefly pondering retirement, it doesn't appear likely that he'll be sufficiently recovered from the concussion in time for Sunday's Week 3 tilt with the 49ers. The Cardinals will have a bye the week after, which could allow Abraham to return to action in Week 5, resulting in him missing just two games. Any return, however, will be contingent on Abraham ultimately passing all concussion tests. It's certainly not a given with the 36-year-old complaining of memory loss after his most recent head injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Abraham will return to the Cardinals on Tuesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Impact: Abraham took a leave from the Cardinals last week after enduring another concussion, which reportedly coincides with the 15-year veteran already suffering from memory loss, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Nonetheless, Abraham has apparently decided to rejoin Arizona on Tuesday, when he's anticipated to get cleared to play following his most recent concussion, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Should that happen, Abraham would be in contention to play this Sunday against the 49ers.(RotoWire, )

News: Arizona coach Bruce Arians says Abraham will return to the Cardinals on Tuesday. Impact: Abraham left the team last Tuesday after sustaining a concussion in the Cardinals' season-opening victory over San Diego. Arians had said that Abraham was contemplating retirement, wondering if he still has the fire to play the game. But Arians indicated Monday that Abraham's absence and attitude had more to do with his headaches from the first "real big" concussion of his 15 -year NFL career.(STATS, 3:00pm)

News: Abraham (concussion) is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Giants, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: Abraham will almost certainly miss this week's game after suffering a concussion Monday. His status beyond Week 2 has yet to be determined, but a decision will need to come soon -- after being placed on the restricted list Wednesday, Abraham needs to either return to the team within five days or sit out the rest of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Abraham has left the Arizona Cardinals and is considering retiring from the game. Impact: The 36-year-old Abraham sustained a concussion in Monday night's 18-17 season-opening victory over San Diego. Abraham, in his 16th NFL season, ranks ninth on the NFL's career sacks list with 133 1/2. He missed nearly all of training camp to, as he later confirmed, undergo rehabilitation treatment for an alcohol problem.(STATS, 3:03pm)

News: Abraham (concussion) was placed on the reserve list Wednesday, and if he doesn't return within five days, he'll miss the remainder of the season, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: After sustaining a concussion in Monday's win versus the Chargers, Abraham left the Cardinals, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, with no indication one way or the other whether he would rejoin the team. Per Schefter, Abraham has been enduring memory loss for more than a year, meaning the pass rusher could be contemplating retirement. The loss would be another blow to a Cardinals defense that lost last year's leading tackler, Karlos Dansby, in free agency, Daryl Washington to suspension, and Darnell Dockett to a torn ACL. If Abraham's career is indeed over, Sam Acho is the leading candidate to cover the other outside linebacker spot opposite Matt Shaughnessy.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Abraham has entered the NFL's concussion protocol, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: Abraham, who left the regular-season opener Monday due to the ailment, has been afflicted with one head injury of mild variety in his lengthy career. During that instance in 2008, the vaunted pass rusher was able to practice all week, but the current protocol wasn't yet in place. As a result, his practice participation should be watched closely this week, with Friday's injury report forecasting his availability for Sunday's contest versus the Giants in New York.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Abraham is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Chargers, the Arizona Repbulic's Kent Somers reports. Impact: Abraham hit his head on a San Diego lineman while trying to get around the edge on a pass play. If the concussion is confirmed, he'll miss the rest of Monday's game and then be subject to the NFL's concussion protocol. Sam Acho and/or Tom Keiser figure(s) to see added playing time in Abraham's absence.(RotoWire, )
