Cardinals WR Christian Kirk is expected to play against the Seahawks today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kirk is questionable with an ankle injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday before limited workouts the next 2 days. The ankle looks like more of an issue than it was last week, when Kirk put in 2 limited practices before a full Friday and no injury designation for the Week 15 game vs. Cleveland.
Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury considers WR Christian Kirk (ankle) "unlikely" to play against the Bengals this weekend. Kingsbury did add that Kirk will be limited in practice this week and that the ankle injury isn't as serious as the team initially feared. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is also not expected to play on Sunday, per Kingsbury, leaving Arizona down to WRs Larry Fitzgerald, KeeSean Johnson, Trent Sherfield and Andy Isabella.
Cardinals WR Christian Kirk injured his right knee or ankle late in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He actually stayed in for 1 more play, made a catch but was then forced to hobble off. We'll look for an update on the injury.
The Cardinals have placed WR Christian Kirk on IR with a broken foot. It ends a promising rookie campaign that saw the 2nd-rounder haul in 61% of his targets and average 13.7 yards per catch in a mostly dysfunctional passing game. With WR Larry Fitzgerald getting no younger, Kirk should play an expanded role in 2019. And hopefully QB Josh Rosen takes a step forward. Foot injuries can be tricky to recover from, though, so we'll need to keep an eye on that this offseason.
