Arizona Cardinals could get a hobbled 49ers offense on Sunday

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals take on the San Francisco 49ers for the second time in 17 days.

The good news is the Cardinals are a bit healthier heading into a Sunday game than they were heading into that Thursday Night Football game where they almost pulled off an upset.

The better news, maybe for the Arizona Cardinals is that the 49ers are hurting, especially on offense.

Let’s take a look at the Wednesday injury report.

The big ones for the Cardinals are obviously Jonathan Bullard and Zach Kerr, as the Cardinals need their defensive line at full strength to stop the 49ers offense that moved the ball at will.

Except, they could have some help.

The 49ers will be without George Kittle and Matt Breida, while they could be without Emmanuel Sanders as well, who ate Patrick Peterson’s lunch last game.

The injuries on the 49ers offense, to three of their top skill players as well as Joe Staley could be enough to even things out, or at least make it a bit closer on Sunday.

We’ll have to keep an eye on the Cardinals defensive personnel and the 49ers offensive personnel the next couple days.
