Injury report grows …

Posted by Darren Urban on September 23, 2009 – 2:23 pm

… but truthfully, the Cardinals seem fairly healthy right now. It’s tough to see wide receiver Steve Breaston (knee) sitting out like he did or linebacker Chike Okeafor (shoulder), but both should practice at some point this week and I would be surprised if Breaston especially doesn’t play Sunday.

Quarterback Kurt Warner was also added to the list this week with his shoulder issue, but he practiced fully and this seems to be more of a precautionary mention rather than any concern he’d miss a game.  Safety Matt Ware (shoulder) and tackle Levi Brown (ankle) were limited. Defensive end Kenny Iwebema (ankle) also remained out, and LB Ali Highsmith (hamstring) didn’t practice either. WRs Anquan Boldin (hamstring) and Early Doucet (ribs) are still listed, but both practiced full, as did safety Antrel Rolle (quadricep).

    After the Jets got hit with such a big fine for not listing Favre last year, it sounds like teams are being extra careful to make sure to list every little injury as in the case with Kurt

    Ali Highsmith? Who’s HE?

    Dave,
    Ali Highsmith was an undrafted free agent from last year. He played mainly special teams his rookie year, and did pretty well. But he got hurt early in the season (I forget what game), and was put on IR so you didn’t see him for the rest of the year.

    Obviously, he is back with the Cardinals this year, and in addition to playing special teams, he is Karlos Dansby’s backup. And from time to time will play OLB.

    My advice is to look for him on kickoff and punt teams. He usually makes an “impact” in those situations.

    Can anybody see how much we are relying on Kurt’s shoulder. I always wished the transition from Kurt to Leinart is a smooth one but to be honest I think Matt can’t handle a pressure on football field. I don’t think Matt lacks athleticism or is unable to throw to the best WR group in the NFL. If that was the case, then the high throws to a RB wide open and 4 yards away from him would have made him the worst QB in the NFL. But now and then, he rebounds and shows flashes of him in college. Then, whats the problem. If Matt can learn anything from Kurt, its not the flea flicker or the quick passes to Boldin, its putting your helmets back on confidently and head on to play even after throwing 3 INTs. He needs to eliminate distractions , and just get back there and play for the Team not for his pride nor for proving himself although it felt so Fng good when Kurt just when back there and showed what he and the team can do after those idiots on FOX claimed JAX win and the end to NFC title.

    I think Matt can handle it, keep in mind that two of his passes that weren’t completed could have been caught by Larry and Becht[or Spach].

    Well he also missed wide open receivers too. Anytime Matt plays it will be in a blowout. If he plays due to an injury to Kurt, we are in trouble.
