As the Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers prepare for their Week 1 meeting, both teams have released their official injury reports. With the NFL season just getting under way, neither side is facing any major injury issues and there should be no fantasy football implications.
For the Cardinals, tight end Jim Dray is out with a strained pectoral muscle suffered in the final preseason game. Dray is fourth on the depth chart and likely would have only played on special teams if he dressed at all.
For the Panters, rookie WR Kealoha Pilares (ankle) and CB Josh Thomas (thigh) won't be played. Pilares is third on the depth chart while Thomas is listed as the back up to starter Chris Gamble.
Carolina listed LB Jon Beason (ankle) and T Jeff Otah (knee) as questionable and G Mackenzy Bernadeau (toe) as probable. Otah didn't participate in practice on Friday while while Beason and Bernadeau were limited.
The Cardinals list CB Michael Adams (knee) and QB John Skelton (ankle) questionable. Skelton did practice Friday while Adams was limited. Listed as probable are: TE Rob Housler (groin), CB Korey Lindsey (illness), WR DeMarco Sampson (hamstring), RB Alfonso Smith (hamstring), S Adrian Wilson (biceps)
