Cardinals Preseason Receiving Leader DeMarco Sampson May Be Out Against Chargers

Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver DeMarco Sampson may not play against the San Diego Chargers, according to Darren Urban. Sampson appears to be dealing with a hamstring injury and is out testing his hamstring less than three hours before the start of the preseason's Week 3 Chargers-Cardinals game.

Sampson has played well in the Cardinals' previous two preseason games, leading all Cardinals receivers with 115 total yards. He caught two passes for 47 yards in a 24-18 win against the Oakland Raiders and hauled in three grabs for 68 yards in a 28-20 loss to the Green Bay Packer.

Those stats aren't to say that Sampson is the best receiver on the Cardinals. Clearly, that honor belongs to Larry Fitzgerald. What the stats do say, though, is that Sampson is playing very efficiently and making the most out of his opportunities this preseason.

Sampson will certainly want to continue his string of solid receiving games against the Chargers. If, however, his hamstring keeps nagging him until game time, the coaching staff may have him sit this one out and watch from the sidelines.
