Wow.

That’s all you can say with the Arizona Cardinals first injury report that was released on Wednesday.

It reads like a list of top players in a game more than an injury report.

At least a couple are did not practice because of non-injury reasons, but this game could be a war of attrition if things don’t improve.

Let’s take a look at the first injury report of the week for the Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cardinals will be without Damiere Byrd and Christian Kirk in this game, however the Kirk injury is not as serious as it looked.

Andy Lee is still dealing with a hip issue, which had a bigger impact on the kicking game and the fragile psyche of their kicker.

The big two question marks are that of defensive end Zach Allen and guard Justin Pugh.

Zach Kerr is now in the fold, but Pugh just popped up on the injury report and the shoulder is a concern anytime it is Pugh with his nagging injury history.

The Bengals will definitely be without A.J. Green and John Ross who was placed on IR. However, left tackle Cordy Glenn is going to miss this week with a concussion, which could be a huge boost for the Cardinals, as they’ll face Andre Smith at left tackle.

Let’s hope for good news for the Cardinals, since the Bengals DNP are definitely out.
