Cardinals TE Todd Heap day-to-day with knee sprain
The Cardinals pulled off a huge upset of the Patriots in New England on Sunday. Tight end Todd Heap led the team with five catches for 62 yards on 10 targets. However, Heap probably couldn't celebrate much after the game as he was probably in some pain. Heap has a sprained PCL in his left knee. According to Kent Somers of AZCentral.com, there's "no idea" if Heap will be able to play Sunday against the Eagles. He is currently considered day-to-day.
The number of passes that headed Heap's way in this one is encouraging; Kevin Kolb obviously trust him. But Heap is a shell of his former self at the age of 32 and shouldn't be depended upon as anything more than a so-so backup in 12-team leagues. An injured Heap is even less intriguing. He has eight catches for 94 yards and no touchdowns so far this year.
