Keep an eye on Cardinals' tight ends

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

PHOENIX -- The Cardinals had two tight ends on the field for most of their longest-gaining plays against the 49ers in Week 1. Arizona has become more of a three- and four-receiver team in subsequent weeks, but the Cardinals could have more options this time.

Starting tight end Leonard Pope is active for the first time since Oct. 12. Ben Patrick and Jerame Tuman remain sidelined by injuries, but former Patriots tight end Stephen Spach is coming off an impressive debut game with the Cardinals.

I would still expect the Cardinals to spread the field, but they do have additional options. The two-tight-end looks could help with the running game.
