The Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears face off in Soldier Field this weekend for NFL Week 2. The Cardinals are coming off of a 31-19 win over the New Orleans Saints at home, a game in which they had control pretty much the whole game. The Bears were much more competitive than many expected in their 31-23 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
In Week 2, the story could be about injuries. The Cardinals are without starting running back Andre Ellington, who left last week's game with a knee injury and could miss as many as three weeks. The Bears, though, might be without top receiver Alshon Jeffery. He got hurt at the end of practice on Thursday and was not able to practice at all on Friday. He might not be able to play, which will make the Bears offense that much less dangerous.
Likewise, outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, one of the Bears' big free agent additions, is questionable for the game.
This is a great test for the Cardinals, who could start 2-0 and give Carson Palmer his eighth straight win.
