Things may have just gotten a bit easier for the Arizona Cardinals.
The scales were (and probably still are) tipped against them as they head to Lambeau Field on Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers. Fortunately, they will be without a couple of their big playmakers. Head coach Mike McCarthy has ruled out fullback John Kuhn, linebacker Nick Perry, cornerback Sam Shields and defensive end Jerel Worthy. Each one of these players play a good amount of snaps for Green Bay and are key parts int heir respective schemes.
As for the rest of the injury news...
Out - WR Greg Jennings (groin/abdomen), S Charles Woodson (collarbone). FB John Kuhn (hamstring), LB Nick Perry (knee, wrist), CB Sam Shields (ankle), DE Jerel Worthy (concussion).
Questionable - WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring), S Jerron McMillian (back).
Probable - DE Mike Neal (ankle), TE Jermichael Finley (shoulder), LG T.J. Lang (elbow/wrist), DT B.J. Raji (ankle), WR Donald Driver (neck/thumb), QB Aaron Rodgers (calf).
Out - G Adam Snyder (quadriceps), QB Kevin Kolb (ribs).
Questionable - CB Greg Toler (hamstring), FS Kerry Rhodes (back), TE Todd Heap (knee).
Probable - LS Mike Leach (back), T D'Anthony Batiste (toe), DT Darnell Dockett (hamstring), TE Jim Dray (knee), CB Jamell Fleming (back), FB Anthony Sherman (knee).
For the Pack, Jordy Nelson will apparently be a game time decision. Without him, the Packers will be without their top two receivers against the Cards.
On the flip side, I expect Kerry Rhodes to go this week after playing last Monday against the 49ers. Todd Heap could also make his first appearance since week two as well. He may be a gametime decision.
Tune in on Sunday morning for the list of inactives before the game.
