Cardinals: Week 2 News & Notes
--WR Early Doucet suffered a groin injury last Sunday and won't play this week. The No. 3 receiver, Doucet has battled injuries in his first two seasons. Coaches, however, don't think he is injury-prone because many of the problems have come on freak plays. Whisenhunt explained that Doucet's current injury could be a sports hernia.
--WR Larry Fitzgerald estimated he was at about 75 percent last week in the season opener. Fitzgerald is returning from a sprained knee and the knee became more sore as the game progressed last week. It's possible the Cardinals could give him more snaps off early in the game Sunday against the Falcons.
--QB Derek Anderson connected on just three passes to Larry Fitzgerald in the season opener, even though he targeted Fitzgerald 15 times. Many of Anderson's passes were off the mark, but Fitzgerald didn't have his normal explosiveness, either.
--WR Max Komar is on the hot seat after fumbling a reception, muffing one punt and fumbling another. A rookie, Komar is getting a reprieve from coaches but he needs to bounce back with a strong game to remain a factor on game day.
