Arizona Cardinals injuries: Rashad Johnson could return in regular season finale, John Abraham fine

Team could be at full strength heading into their final home game of the year.

The Arizona Cardinals have a huge Week 17 game at home against the San Francisco 49ers, and they could be a (relatively) full health when they play.

According to head coach Bruce Arians in his Monday session with the media, safety Rashad Johnson could return and there were no serious injuries in the game in Seattle. In fact, he said it was "injury-free," aside from "bumps and bruises" from a very physical game.

Linebacker John Abraham had to be helped off the field late in the game with an injury, but Arians said he was fine and that it was just a stinger that the veteran linebacker suffered.

If course, the team is not technically at full strength, as they have many key starters on injured reserve -- guard Jonathan Cooper, linebackers Sam Acho and Lorenzo Alexander and safety Tyrann Mathieu.

Johnson missed the game with a high ankle sprain.

Since the Cardinals must win the game to perhaps make the postseason, it will be good to have everyone available, assuming nothing happens in practice this week.
