Cardinals Vs. Saints, Hall Of Fame Game Injury Report: Darnell Dockett, Adrian Wilson Out

It is the first preseason game of the 2012 season and actually a pre-preseason game for both the Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints, so teams are going to be particularly careful with injuries, since it is in essence and meaningless game. So in the Hall of Fame Game, there will be a few key players out for the Arizona Cardinals players.

The Cards will have 11 players out for the game:

  • CB Crezdon Butler (hip)
  • DT Darnell Dockett (hamstring)
  • DE Nick Eason (family illness)
  • CB Marshay Green (hamstring)
  • RB Javarris James (abductor strain)
  • TE Jeff King (quad -- on PUP)
  • LB Zack Nash (ankle)
  • RB Beanie Wells (knee -- on PUP)
  • RB Ryan Williams (knee)
  • WR Stephen Williams (hamstring)
  • S Adrian Wilson (calf)

Most of these absences were no surprise. The ones that have the most to lose by not playing are Stephen Williams and Marshay Green, who are at best on the fringe of the final roster.

However, with four preseason games still to be played, the team is not going to push it with any of the players.
