However, Cunningham has played every snap over the past two contests, recording 19 stops, a pass breakup and a forced fumble. Kirksey could return from IR in Week 13, but there's a decent chance Cunningham – who generated 164 tackles last year – retains his role anyway.
Alex Singleton, LB
Singleton was one of the top IDP players through the first seven weeks with 76 tackles (44 solo), but he took a backseat to T.J. Edwards and Davion Taylor starting in Week 8.
