Arizona Cardinals could get a wounded Bengals team on Sunday

Breaks have not been breaks for the Arizona Cardinals in 2019.

The team failed to capitalize on injuries to the Carolina Panthers to Cam Newton and Kawann Short.

Now, the Cardinals have a chance against the lowly Cincinnati Bengals to get their first win with Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray, and will likely see a Bengals team that is missing two of their top three wide receivers.

Apparently, John Ross could join A.J. Green on the sideline on Sunday, as Ross left the Monday Night Football game against the Steelers with an apparent shoulder injury, and came back to the sideline in a sling.

But soon after, the Bengals announced Ross was questionable to return with a shoulder injury. He ended up not returning and actually went to the locker room for examination, then returned in a shoulder sling, according to Joe Danneman...

With a short turnaround for Sunday when the Cardinals, it’s hard to see Ross being back in time to play if he’s already in a sling. Hopefully, this isn’t anything more than a one or two-week injury. The last thing Ross is another major injury that leads to surgery.

The Cardinals need all the help they can get, and while we never root for an injury, the Bengals being down both Green and Ross should improve some chances on Sunday.

Of course, they still have to stop Tyler Boyd, Tyler Eifert and Joe Mixon, so who knows.
