Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
As the Arizona Cardinals prepare to host the Miami Dolphins at University of Phoenix Stadium, there are still some key pieces to the team that may be questionable to play on Sunday.
Another practice means another injury report for your Arizona Cardinals. Most players remain at the same status that they were yesterday, with the exception of punter Dave Zastudil and fullback Anthony Sherman. He was upgraded to a full participant in practice after being limited on Wednesday with a right calf injury. Sherman, who did not participate at all in the previous practice, was now limited on the field. Korey Hall's presence may mean that the Cardinals choose to sit him out for a week, but then again, he could just be insurance.
Here are the rest of the injury updates, per the Cardinals' official website:
Adrian Wilson (ankle/groin), Rashad Johnson (hamstring), O'Brien Schofield (knee), Adam Snyder (elbow), John Skelton (ankle), Michael Adams (hamstring), James Sanders (calf), Anthony Sherman (hamstring): limited participants
Dave Zastudil was the only player listed as a full participant.
Kerry Rhodes, Ryan Williams, Daryn Colledge, Jeff King and Jamell Fleming were all removed from the injury report, while Adams and Sanders were added to it. This is a good sign in many ways. Without Beanie Wells and with Stephens-Howling in question, Williams will be heavily relied upon to carry much of the running load, along with William Powell.
The bad news is that as soon as the secondary starts to get some health back, two more get injured. Luckily for the Cardinals, Sanders, when Wilson is playing, and Michael Adams are typically just special teams players (albeit two of the better ones).
Seeing Sherman upgraded gives me some hope that he plays this Sunday. His presence both as a fullback and as a special teams ace would be sorely missed. Darnell Dockett, on the other hand, is starting to seem somewhat doubtful to play against the 'Fins.
I think many of these players become game time decisions, but as for the guys that are now off the report completely, this is definitely a good sign.
