The Arizona Cardinals could not make it through training camp without one significant loss.
Now they have three.
Patrick Peterson is suspended the first six games of the regular season.
Darius Philon was released due to aggravated assault charges.
Now, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, prize free agent cornerback Robert Alford will miss a significant part of the regular season.

This is the risk you run when you bring in players with injury history, but for the Arizona Cardinals, it was a risk they had to take.
Through training camp, Robert Alford had been one of the best players on the field.
He made the reality of Patrick Peterson being gone for six games a bit easier to deal with.
Now, the Cardinals will be without Alford as well.
As soon as we have more information we’ll get it to you.
