Tavon Austin (shoulder) and Kenny Britt (thigh) are officially listed as questionable, though I'd be surprised if either sits. Will Hayes (ankle) is doubtful. Pharoh Cooper, EJ Gaines and Nelson Spruce have no designation because the "probable" classification no longer applies. They'll play. Dominque Easley (illness) also questionable, but he was a full participant today.

"I think this team is trying a little too hard. We cut it loose one game, played pretty good. The rest, we pressed it a little bit." – Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on if his team is relying on their success in 2015 too much. Arizona has struggled offensively to start games. The Cardinals haven't scored in in the first quarter in their last five regular-season games dating back to last season. And since Arians arrived in Arizona, the Cards haven't scored in the first quarter in 25 of 51 games.
