    Obviously he's going to try and play through it if at all possible, but I imagine such an injury could affect a number of his pass rush moves and his leverage and strength in general.

    Anyone worried that he plays effectively, or even at all?

    On a positive note, from the same report:

    If Mario is really hurting this bad maybe they should cut his overall playing time and really turn up the rotation, let guys get a shot from all angles. My only concern is that I think the rotations only shot at working is having an all world defensive end to make up for any lack of talent elsewhere. Antonio Smith could really do well for his reputation as a Texan to turn it up a notch or two in this game. If Okoye got another sack I think most of us would be floored. DLine pretty much has to win this game for the team by cutting the snake off at the head. As long as Warner is flustered they'll have a chance. If it's a straightup shootout (I don't think they can stop the boys) it'll just be about who has the ball last.

    :lol: at the cush's response-

    I hope this is less painful than the foot problems he had in year 1.

    Frankly...I am not too worried about it...he will be fine.

    I agree. Kubes needs a plan that slow the passing game of Arizona and Dline needs to at least hurry Warner. He can be gotten to. Or LB will stop the running game and assist the Dline. We must score every time we have the ball.

    Nope! Not worried. BUT, I sure hope it messes up the Cards thinking and they won't keep two guys on him. Let them THINK he might be a little soft. lol

    Cortisone? For a bruise? Eh, spit in your palm, rub it in the shoulder and get back to work.

    Fridays injury report is in.... Mario questionable.... another one of note is James Casey is questionable with a knee, had no idea about that one... also the Cardinals have some interesting questionables (DRC & Dockett)..
