Cardinals: Latest News, Notes & Quotes
--FS Kerry Rhodes suffered a serious injury to his left foot and could miss significant time. Rhodes said the X-ray showed a problem but declined to be specific. He did say the injury was "not good."
--K Jay Feely appears to be back in form after missing three of his first four field goals this season. Feely has made three consecutive kicks, including a 51-yarder against the Vikings.
--WR Early Doucet is technically the third receiver but he's more of a focal point of the offense than starter Andre Roberts. Doucet caught eight passes for 92 yards. He had a touchdown nullified because of a hands-to-the-face penalty.
--TE Rob Housler, a rookie, had three catches for 25 yards while playing in place of the injured Todd Heap.
--OL D'Anthony Batiste played left guard when Daryn Colledge left the game with a concussion. Deuce Lutui did not play.
LINEUP WATCH: Jeremy Bridges has replaced Brandon Keith as the starting right tackle. The convenient excuse is that Keith has been troubled by swelling in his right knee. And while that was a factor, the reason for the change was that Keith was struggling. He had trouble with pass sets and was allowing too much pressure on Kevin Kolb. Keith is more athletic than Bridges. It's a veteran right side now, one that has seen most everything a defense can throw at it. Bridges, however, isn't that athletic and he gave up a critical sack against the Vikings.
TRENDING: The Cardinals entered the Vikings game with serious woes on third down. In their previous two games, they converted just 6 of 26 and 1 of 8 in the fourth quarters. The problems are varied. They improved against the Vikings, converting on 8 of 18, but those statistics are deceiving. The Vikings had a big lead for most of the game, and were content, for the most part, to make the Cardinals work their way down the field.
