The Cardinals high-power passing game is set to make waves in New York. Brett Favre and his Jets…
Two Major Hitters Hurting
Strong safety Adrian Wilson sat out most of Thursday's practice with a sore right hamstring. Whisenhunt was not available after the workout to provide an update, so it's not known how serious the injury is.
If Wilson can't play, either Matt Ware or Aaron Francisco will start.
Berry, on the other hand, wasn't a starter. He backed up weak outside linebacker Travis LaBoy, but Berry led the team with three sacks. He had a sack in each of the first three games, marking the first time in his 11-year career that he had recorded sacks in three consecutive games.
Chike Okeafor, the starter on the strong side, is getting some work on the weak side this week, as is backup strong-side linebacker Clark Haggans. That gives the team three options for the most important pass-rushing position on the team.
--NT Gabe Watson has made it through five full practices but might be a week away from his season debut. Watson suffered a fractured kneecap in a treadmill accident last spring.
--WR Jerheme Urban is seeing a lot of action as the No. 4 receiver, because the team is using a spread formation a lot. But Urban doesn't have a catch yet this year.
--QB Kurt Warner hasn't fumbled yet this season. That's a big key for Warner, who had a tendency to fumble when moving up in the pocket after taking seven-step drops. Coaches have worked with him to solve the problem.
--WR Steve Breaston is averaging just 18.8 yards a kick return, among the worst in the league. Coaches think Breaston will show improvement if his blocking improves and he shows better judgment on bringing balls out of the end zone.
--TE Jerame Tuman has missed every game this season because of a hamstring injury. Tuman is the No. 3 tight end but he is the best blocker at the position.
--RB Edgerrin James is having a productive season but he still doesn't break any big runs. In two-plus seasons with the team, James has just four runs of 20 yards or more.
