Arizona Cardinals Injury Update: Kurt Warner Is Fine

New, comments

For the most part, the Arizona Cardinals remained relatively healthy after Sunday nights 30-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Starting left tackle Mike Gandy was not set to play and back-up Jeremy Bridges filled in, not allowing a sack to Jared Allen. Kurt Warner missed last week's Titans game, and there were many question marks heading into the Vikings game of whether or not he'd play. He did play, and at the end of the game he was seen limping down the sideline after injuring his hip. From azcardinals.com, Darren Urban:

The only injury of note coming out of the Vikings game, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, was the hip pointer quarterback Kurt Warner suffered on his final pass attempt of the night. Warner was limping after the game, but Whisenhunt said Warner was moving around well Monday morning and it "probably won’t be an issue." Because the Cards have a Monday night game next week, they have an extra day off, which also helps.

"It actually feels good today," Warner said. "It was sore last night, we were able to get some medicine in it last night and work up today and it was a lot better. I was able to lift and do some cardio. It felt a lot better than I thought it was going to be. We’ll be fine."

Whisenhunt said the return of LT Mike Gandy was still unknown. Until Gandy can practice, Whisenhunt said, he isn’t sure if and when the veteran can return, although Gandy could return this week. That said, Jeremy Bridges was impressive in Gandy’s place. Gandy said he was feeling OK and hoped to return to practice.

 Kurt Warner went through off-season hip surgery before this year and was noticeably stiff through the first 3 games of the season.
