Arizona Cardinals have some issues with their Thursday injury report heading into game with Jaguars

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals got some good news back on Thursday, but there was one issue coming out of this injury report that makes things a bit of a concern.

First, let’s take a look at the Thursday injury report.

Kelvin Beachum and DeAndre Hopkins are still missing practice, but we know that Hop will play. Beachum could and maybe should miss this week.

The big issue right now is that of Byron Murphy Jr., who has an ankle injury that was not...

Sorry for the delay on this one, but better late than never.

The Arizona Cardinals had an uneven defensive effort in Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, the first half left a lot to be desired, while the second half was nearly perfect.

They have a chance to give us another full effort on Sunday against a bad Jacksonville Jaguars team.

Let’s take a look at the snap counts.

Budda Baker - 61 snaps (100%)
Byron Murphy Jr. - 61 (100%)
Chandler Jones - 61...

The team announced the signing of cornerback Mazzi Wilkins to the practice squad.

From the team:

Wilkins (6-0, 191) played in six games with Tampa Bay (2019-20) the past two seasons and had three tackles after entering the league with...

Wait, timeout... has Kliff Kingsbury turned the corner as an NFL head coach? | Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

Rarely does a football game have such equal amounts of good, bad, and ugly. Let’s see what was what from Sunday’s win over the Vikings.

Man, that was one hell of a game. It was one of the most evenly matched, back-and-forth, topsy-turvy games you’ll ever see. The Cardinals should count themselves lucky to have come away with a win.

This game had it all: good, bad, and...

Arizona Cardinals offensive snap counts in win over Minnesota Vikings

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals offense was quite good once again. They only ran 61 plays, but they piled up a total of 474 yards of total offense.

What did the snap counts look like?

Let’s take a look.

Kyler Murray - 61 snaps (100%)
D.J.Humprhies - 61 snaps (100%)
Rodney Hudson - 61 snaps (100%)
Justin Pugh - 61 (100%)
DeAndre Hopkins - 59 (97%)
Josh Jones - 58 (95%)

Quite interesting to see it is still not a ton of player getting over 90%.

A.J. Green - 51 (84%)

Kyler Murray ‘This is the way’ touchdown celebration shirt

The Arizona Cardinals sit at 2-0 and the reality is they are slowly growing a national fanbase and following.

Last week we shared the opportunity to celebrate the re-emergence of Chandler Jones with his “Unstoppable” shirt that dropped after his five sack performance.

This week, Kyler Murray gave us a show to remember and a touchdown pose to remember and now you can celebrate as well.

That is right, BreakingT and RotB have again joined forces to release the Kyler Murray “This...

Yet, the only thing that matters is the Cardinals are 2-0 and not the first NFC West team to lose a game, thanks Titans!

However, this was not the complete domination of week one, so let’s take a look at the winners and losers from the Arizona Cardinals week two win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Rondale Moore shows big play ability in Arizona Cardinals win over Minnesota Vikings

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have been looking for a weapon to deploy alongside their talented top wide receivers since the 2015 season.

After Michael Floyd and John Brown took steps back and then the failures to draft and develop, it was now 2021’s second round pick Rondale Moore’s turn.

Through two games, all he has done is put up 11 receptions for 182 yards and one touchdown, as he has given life to the Arizona Cardinals short passing game, while still being a...

Arizona Cardinals survive on missed field goals over Minnesota Vikings

The Arizona Cardinals came out flat today and in the end it cost them.

Defensively the team started slow, then Kyler Murray came out in the second half and threw a bad pick that Nick Vigil returned for a touchdown.

It was ugly, it was ineffective and it was a 34-33 win for the Cardinals.

That’s all that matters for the team, even if it felt like they didn’t earn it.

Instead you had a massive day for Kyler Murray in the stat column, finishing 29/36 for 400...
