The Arizona Cardinals continue to prepare for their second preseason game this weekend, when they will take on the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday. They may be doing so not at full strength, as many players are dinged up and are perhaps at risk of missing the game.
In other news, head coach Bruce Arians said that safety Tyrann Mathieu and defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu are very close to coming off the PUP list. Reports are swirling that Mathieu will come off next week.
The players that are injured right now include Mathieu and Ta'amu, as well as center Lyle Sendlein, who is likely to be about another week or two with a calf injury.
Other players sat out of practice.
They were tackle Max Starks (ankle), tackle Nate Potter (back), receiver Ted Ginn (knee), receiver Michael Floyd (groin) and guard Jonathan Cooper.
Arians said about "half" those guys might not be able to play Saturday. That would probably be Floyd at least, who was expected to miss six to 10 days with his injury.
