The outside linebacker’s status for Sunday’s game against Miami is in doubt.

Yesterday it was reported that two members of the Arizona Cardinals had tested positive for COVID-19. We now know that one of those players is Cardinal OLB Devon Kennard.

Earlier this morning it was reported that Arizona, since the announcement of their two positive tests last night, have had none throughout several more rounds of testing.

It is uncertain at this time who the other member of the Cardinals is that tested positive. As of yesterday, the Cardinals were a -6 point betting favorite against visiting Miami but that game has since been removed from a large majority of gambling sites.

Devon Kennard had recently returned against the Cowboys after nursing a lower body injury that kept him out earlier this season. He is currently in the midst of a three year deal with the Cardinals and has two sacks on the season.

If Kennard is unable to go, the Cardinals will likely lean on veterans Haason Reddick and the newly acquired Markus Golden at OLB. Dennis Gardeck and Kylie Fitts could also aid in helping to provide pressure upfront against the Dolphins.

We will continue to update you with more information as we receive it.

Revenge of the Birds wishes Devon a speedy recovery.
