Chris Olave, a wide receiver, has been cleared of concussion protocol and should play. WR Michael Thomas (foot), Jarvis Landry (ankle), and Keith Kirkwood (ankle), as well as RB Mark Ingram II (knee) and TE Adam Trautman, are all doubtful (ankle). LG Andrus Peat (chest) has been ruled out. Four backup offensive linemen are either doubtful or on injured reserve.

It’s impossible to look past the Cardinals’ home problems. If they don’t win this game, it will be a year since Arizona last won at home. On October 24, 2021, the Cardinals defeated the Houston Texans 31-5 at State Farm Stadium.
