Happy holidays to everyone!
Christmas eve the NFL brings the fans many presents today, one being the match up between two very similar teams in the Arizona Cardinals and the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cardinals are back east, visiting Cinci. The weather is to remain cool but clear. Both teams are in need of a victory to help themselves towards the playoffs.
Match ups can be skewed by the injury bug though, and keeping that in mind, hit the jump to see who won't suit up today.
For the Cards:
- QB Kevin Kolb - Concussion
- OT Brandon Keith - Ankle
- SS Sean Considine - Foot
- OLB Brandon Williams - New to the system
- WR Stephen Williams - Numbers game
- WR Jaymar Johnson - Numbers game
- WR DeMarco Sampson - Numbers game
- WR Andre Caldwell
- TE Colin Cochart
- DT Nick Hayden
- G Otis Hudson
- RB Brian Leonard
- LB Dontay Moch
- FS Robert Sands
On the Bengals side it appears everyone sitting is depth. Rookie WR A. J. Green is playing, which is good news for both Bengals fans and rookie QB Andy Dalton, who has grown through the season with the WR. Look for a premier match up of Patrick Peterson against Green.
There's just over an hour til kickoff. I'll see everyone on the other side. Go Cards!
