The Arizona Cardinals are heading to Carolina and are getting a little more healthy, but there are still a number of players, starters, that are listed as non participants in today’s practice.
It starts again with Michael Floyd and Darren Fells as both did not participate, for the second time this week, leaving questions about the tight end and wide receiver room heading to Carolina.
The Panthers have been fairly bad stopping the pass, and while Fells is not necessarily a huge weapon, Floyd’s absence will be felt… right? Maybe this is the game that we see the passing game open up, but I do think the running game will miss both Fells and Floyd, as the smaller wide receivers are not as good at blocking. That means the Cardinals could go with a rotation of Hakeem Valles, run blocking, and Ifeanyi Momah, pass catching, but that can make things a little too obvious.
Best news, Mike Iupati is full, while Patrick Peterson and Jared Veldheer were upgraded from DNP’s to limited.
Keep an eye out for Marcus Cooper at this point on defense, he is battling that foot issue.
Meanwhile, let’s hope it is just precautionary with Carson Palmer being limited still.
