Linebacker Will Davis has a fractured fibula, coach Ken Whisenhunt said today, so he is out. It doesn’t help the depth issue, but Whisenhunt said he isn’t overly concerned at the moment. Linebacker Clark Haggans should be OK this week after sitting Sunday with a groin problem — Whisenhunt acknowledged the Cards may have rushed Haggans back the previous week against Seattle — and he noted rookie O’Brien Schofield is getting more practice time. “Not that I am ready to have O’Brien play a significant amount of snaps.”
“It’s disappointing because (Will) was playing fairly well for us,” Whisenhunt said.
Defensive end Calais Campbell has an ankle sprain that needs to be evaluated as the week goes. Whisenhunt did think running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (groin) will be ready this week. The Cards do have an extra day between games because of “Monday Night Football.” Officially, players were off Monday, although a bunch of them were down in the locker room working out.
