Cardinals: Pregame News & Notes
--RB Tim Hightower has lost three fumbles this year and is in danger of losing his starting job to Beanie Wells.
--RB Beanie Wells could make the first start of his career this week. Tim Hightower has lost three fumbles and Wells could supplant him.
--RB LaRod Stephens-Howling can be a dynamic third-down back if the team can keep games close, which enables coaches to use the entire offensive game plan. Stephens-Howling is difficult to defend when he has some space.
--WR Steve Breaston is expected to return after missing three games with a knee injury. He will start.
--WR Early Doucet returned last week after missing four games due to a sports hernia. Doucet did not look 100 percent and was sore after the game. He is expected to play Sunday.
--WR Larry Fitzgerald caught just three passes for 30 yards last week in Seattle. Fitzgerald has been open but quarterbacks have had difficulty getting him the ball.
--WR Andre Roberts fills the No.4 receiver's and punt returner's job. He has not excelled at either but the Cardinals are hoping he's close to making a breakthrough.
--TE Ben Patrick is a decent receiver who is being underutilized. Patrick has 11 catches, one short of his career high, but the Cardinals don't use the tight end consistently in the pass game.
--PK Jay Feely has a strong leg and has made 7 of 8 field goals.
