The latest injury report is out. Two crucial starters for the Arizona Cardinals did not suit up for Wednesday's practice in preparation for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Starting tight end Todd Heap continues to be bothered by a hamstring issue, and starting free safety Kerry Rhodes continues to be bothered with foot issues. You would have to think both starters are questionable to see the field on Sunday.
Thankfully, tight end Jim Dray seems to have finally gotten some relief for that bothersome pectoral injury. He is limited in practice, but it's better than being totally shut down. With Heap struggling with his own injury problems, Dray could see some action in the near future.
Linebacker Joey Porter was limited, but don't read too much into that. Porter can sometimes take a day off according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
The injury list for the Steelers is long: T Casey Hampton (shoulder), LB James Harrison (eye), T Chris Hoke (neck), G Doug Legursky (toe), DE Aaron Smith (foot), WR Mike Wallace (hamstring), WR Hines Ward (not injury related)
