The Arizona Cardinals are struggling out of the gate and now they find a number of key contributors on the initial injury report heading into week four of the 2018 NFL season.

Clearly the big names that jump out are Robert Nkemdiche, Corey Peters and of course that guy named Larry Fitzgerald.

Fitz’s absence is big as the Cardinals need as much work for Josh Rosen with the future Hall of Famer as possible. Although, Fitz has made a living out of catching passes from whatever quarterback is throwing him the ball that week.

However, the Cardinals need something positive to come out of this game.

On the other side of the ball, missing Corey Peters and Robert Nkemdiche would be massive to a defense that has been finding its footing over the last two weeks.

Especially against the run, where the Seahawks will try and live on Sunday.

Obviously Markus Golden and Jermaine Gresham have some recovering to do after their first live action in quite a while, but Benson Mayowa and Olsen Pierre are two more players to watch this week, as the Cardinals need all hands on deck on defense.

The Seattle Seahawks have quite the initial injury list as well, so that will be something to follow this week.
