Cardinals wide receiver Early Doucet is expecting a fine after an altercation with 49ers safety…
Cardinals: Latest News & Notes
--QB John Skelton is now 5-3 as a starter over two years. Skelton has struggled in his last two games, however, with both his mechanics and reading defenses.
--RB Beanie Wells set a franchise record with 228 rushing yards last week in Atlanta. Wells carried 27 times despite playing through a right knee injury. Wells also scored his eighth rushing touchdown, a personal record.
--RB LaRod Stephens-Howling is a specialty player with talent for making big plays in the open field. He's caught key passes in third down and fourth down situations the last two weeks.
--RB Chester Taylor has passed Alfonso Smith to become Beanie Wells' backup again. Taylor, however, is not going to get the ball more than a few times a game unless Beanie Wells suffers an injury.
--WR Larry Fitzgerald isn't getting the ball as much as the team deals with poor quarterback play. Fitzgerald is playing as well as ever.
--WR Andre Roberts looks like an average No. 2 receiver, at best. He blocked well last week for Beanie Wells but isn't much of a threat in the passing game.
--WR Early Doucet is having a productive season as the team's third receiver. He's a threat in the red zone and good on third.
--TE Todd Heap played more last week after missing most of the previous six games with a hamstring injury. Heap wasn't targeted in the pass game but did a nice job of blocking.
--TE Jeff King is a solid all-around player. He's a very good blocker and catches the ball well. He doesn't have great speed.
--TE Rob Housler missed the last three weeks with a groin injury. At best, he will be questionable this week.
--K Jay Feely made all three of his field goal attempts against the Rams.
--NT Nick Eason started in place of Dan Williams, who is out for the season with a broken arm.
--OLB Sam Acho had two sacks against the Rams, giving him five on the season. Acho, a rookie, has been a real find as a fourth-round pick.
--CB/PR Patrick Peterson has four punt returns for touchdowns, tying a single-season NFL record. All four have been at least 80 yards.
