The one thing that was the most troubling about the 24-7 loss the Arizona Cardinals suffered on Saturday night was the amount of injuries that were sustained. Rookie guard Jonathan Cooper broke his leg. Rashard Mendenhall sprained his knee. There were a few ankle injuries.
However, it turns out that things are not as bad as they seemed.
Mendenhall has a slight knee sprain and should be good to go for the season opener.
Tight end Rob Housler is the big concern. He suffered a high ankle sprain, so that could keep him on the shelf for several weeks. He is, though, trying to make it in time for the opener against the Rams.
