Arizona Cardinals: Longest injury list of year
The Arizona Cardinals injury report had 17 players listed on Wednesday ahead of game against Tennessee Titans
At first glance of the Arizona Cardinals injury report on Wednesday, it is almost easier to list who wasn’t on the injury report than who was. The Cardinals listed 17 players on the report Wednesday, a season high.
Of the 17 that were listed, eight of them did not practice. Of those eight, three were listed as non-injury related, which meant they were given the day off. They included defensive tackle Larry Fitzgerald, linebacker Karlos Dansby, and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker.
A total of nine players were listed as limited on Wednesday. They included cornerback Patrick Peterson, running back Kerwynn Williams, receivers J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown, linebacker Deone Bucannon, long snapper Justin Drescher, defensive tackle Josh Mauro, center A.Q. Shipley, and tight end Troy Niklas.
The other five players not practicing on Wednesday were receiver John Brown, safety Rudy Ford, defensive lineman Corey Peters, running back Adrian Peterson, and tackle Jared Veldheer. The only one on this list that played last Sunday was Veldheer.

it would seem last weeks injured are still in the same status. The Cardinals are also probably no longer in a rush to bring any of the injured back given their standing at 5-7.
The Tennessee Titans meanwhile only listed four players on their injury report on Wednesday. Three players did not practice.
Those that did not practice included linebacker Derrick Morgan, cornerback Logan Ryan, and tight end Delanie Walker. Receiver Rishard Matthews was limited.
The Cardinals would catch a break if Walker or Matthews could not go on offense for the Titans. Still another day of practice remains. The Titans come to Phoenix early as they arrive on Friday instead of Saturday.
Expect those who got the day off on Wednesday to be practicing on Thursday. Still, it is a little concerning that the Cardinals are still dealing with a number of injury issues.
