The Cardinals got some good news Friday in the injury departement, as starting DE Antonio Smith took part in all the practice, and will go Sunday in Super Bowl XLIII vs the Steelers. He is listed as probable due to a sore knee. As far as the other players a little banged up, RB/KR J.J. Arrington DE Travis LaBoy and punter Ben Graham were all limited.
Arrington has a sore left knee, LaBoy an injured biceps and Graham a sore groin. Overall, it sounds like the Cardinals are as ready as they are going to be for the Super Bowl showdown against the favored Steelers. Coach Ken Whisenhunt met with the media one last time on Friday morning, and felt his team had done what they needed to do in the week leading up to the game.
“I thought it was a good week of work,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “You always wonder when you go on the road and your team is practicing in another facility if your team is going to have the consistency that you’ve had. No question that it helped us that we’ve already done this once this season.”
Reports say that Kurt Warner had his best throwing day of the week, and he’ll have to have a good game for the Cards, a 7-point underdog, to pull off the upset on the Steelers.
