With the Arizona Cardinals playing three games in the span of 18 days, two against two of the best defenses in the NFL, there seems to be a bit of caution being shown.

Obviously we know about the injury to David Johnson, it was on the mind and lips of every fantasy football player in America, but there are other issues looming.

Will Christian Kirk be back?

Can Jordan Hicks get healthy?

What the hell is wrong with Zach Allen and are we getting to the point where there is a genuine concern for when he may play again?

Based on the Thursday injury report for the Arizona Cardinals, we don’t have many answers.

Even if David Johnson is limited today in practice, it seems unlikely and even foolish to expect him to play on Sunday.

Kirk is the bigger question mark, as he seems poised for a return, but is a tough road game in New Orleans, with a short week and another physical opponent the right time?

Is Thursday the right time even, or should the Cardinals look to Tampa Bay to get healthy and back on track?

These are the questions that will be answered based on Friday’s injury report, but also on what we see the Cardinals decide to do on Sunday.
