  • Cardinals' Elijah Higgins: Gaining traction in passing game

    Higgins gathered in one of his two targets for a 21-yard reception while playing 22 of the Cardinals' 68 snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Steelers.

    After being inactive for the Cardinals' first six games of the season, Higgins has suited up for each of the subsequent seven games and is beginning to carve out a tertiary role in the Arizona passing attack. Though second-year tight end Trey McBride is the clear top option on the depth chart, Higgins may be threatening Geoff Swaim for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. Higgins has now drawn two targets in two consecutive games, and the 32-percent snap share he handled Sunday was a season-high rate.

  • Cardinals' Elijah Higgins: Ready to go for Week 7

    Higgins (illness) did not appear on Arizona's injury report Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

  • Cardinals' Elijah Higgins: Considered questionable

    Higgins (illness) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Rams, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Higgins logged a limited workload at Friday's practice after missing the first two days of the week, a reason for optimism that he is trending in the right direction. Still, final confirmation of his status is unlikely to come until the Cardinals release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Cardinals' Elijah Higgins: Inactive Sunday

    Higgins (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington.

    The 22-year-old was claimed by Arizona on Aug. 30 after he didn't make the Dolphins' 53-man roster. Even though the Cardinals added Higgins, he won't be suiting up Sunday, as he's the team's fourth tight end on their depth chart. His next chance to be active on game day will come in Week 2 against the Giants.

  • Elijah Higgins: Getting let go

    Higgins was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Higgins was chosen in the sixth round of the 2023 Draft by the team and spent camp trying to transition from college wideout to NFL tight end. Despite his inability to make the final roster, the Stanford product is likely to end up on Miami's practice squad, if he can clear waivers.

  • Dolphins' Elijah Higgins: Moving to tight end

    Higgins told reporters Saturday that he is "definitely willing" to transition from wide receiver to tight end, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

    The Dolphins selected Higgins with the 197th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Although he played wide receiver in his four years at Stanford, the Dolphins listed him as a tight end, a position they identified as a need for them. Higgins has no experience at tight end, but his 6-foot-3, 235-pound frame will help him as he learns the position. Higgins caught 59 passes for 704 yards and two touchdowns in his final season at Stanford.

  • Dolphins' Elijah Higgins: Goes to Miami in sixth round

    The Dolphins selected Higgins in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, 197th overall.

    Higgins emerged as Stanford's most productive wide receiver the last two seasons, tallying a combined 104 receptions, 1,204 yards and six touchdowns. He tested very well at the combine in terms of both his speed and burst, and he has a big frame (6-foot-3, 235 pounds) that will allow him to play as either a move tight end or big slot as a pro. That's an interesting fit in Miami, as they lack proven options at both positions.
