The Arizona Cardinals and the Atlanta Falcons both have key players with injuries that will likely affect the outcome of the game this Sunday. The difference is that it appears that injuries are less of a factor for the Cardinals, aside from the rib injuries to Kevin Kolb and the players that are already on injured reserve.
For Arizona, only Kolb is out. Defensive end Calais Campbell practiced in a limited capacity for the first time on Friday, but is questionable for the game on Sunday, along with cornerbacks Jamell Fleming and Greg Toler, and tight end Todd Heap.
Tight end Jeff King, guard Adam Snyder, long snapper Mike Leach and safety Kerry Rhodes all are probable for Sunday.
Atlanta is banged up. Receiver Julio Jones is questionable for the game, but he did not practice all week. Likewise is the case with linebacker Sean Witherspoon. Defensive end John Abraham was limited all week in practice, but is questionable for the game.
Tight end Tony Gonzalez is probable after fully practicing Thursday and Friday.
Receiver Kevin Cone and safety Charles Mitchell are out.
In addition to Jones, Witherspoon and Abraham, running back Michael Turner and defensive tackle Vance Walker are questionable. Linebackers Mike Peterson and Stephen Nicholas are probable, as are defensive tackle Johnathan Babineaux and receiver Harry Douglas.
