New, comments

A first look at the injury report on a short week.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals began their week of practice getting ready for the Cleveland Browns. They did so with many players on the sideline. Seven players did not participate in practice. The team is a little banged up.

Receiver John Brown (hamstring) was again out of practice. He has been bothered by a hamstring the past couple of weeks in practice and has played through it. But the team is trying not to aggravate it. Linebacker Alex Okafor (calf) and tight end Darren Fells (shoulder), who have been out, continued to be so. Head coach Bruce Arians has already said Okafor will be "real close" to playing this weekend. Fells is still at least a week away from playing.

Cornerback Jerraud Powers (hamstring) sat out, but he is already ruled out for the next two to three weeks. Receiver Brittan Golden (groin), center Lyle Sendlein (ankle) and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (quad) were the other non-participants.

Cornerback Justin Bethel (foot) was limited. He will be the starter at cornerback in place of Powers. Safety/linebacker Deone Bucannon was also limited with an elbow injury, while linebacker Dwight Freeney was limited with a finger injury.

For Cleveland, they were down a few players at practice as well, though some were simply given the day off.

Quarterback Josh McCown, who got hurt on Sunday, did not practice with his rib and shoulder injuries. It did sound like he would start on Sunday.
