Watford returns to get start in Philly

Watford returns to get start in Philly

With no Alex Boone today (he’s unable to play because of his pectoral injury) the Cardinals will turn to Earl Watford to start at left guard, after Watford made his homecoming this week — both to the Cardinals, after leaving as a free agent, and here to Philadelphia, where he grew up. It’s yet another […]

Simulation Saturday: 49ers-Cardinals on Madden

Simulation Saturday: 49ers-Cardinals on Madden

With all these injuries, can Madden get it right? Well, Madden predicted some high scoring games last week, but I figured it’d be a close one and it wound up being a high scoring game, but a close finish. But it really didn’t predict much of anything. There’s no way a video game is going to predict a finish like that last week, much less a crucial PI call to turn things around. This week, we have the Arizona Cardinals who are dealing with their own injury issues. What would be a reunion with the offensive line of 49ers past will wait as Mike Iupatti is headed to IR and Alex Boone...

A banged-up OL, and Friday before the Niners

A banged-up OL, and Friday before the Niners

Well, this is where the Cardinals are. In a week in which Friday finally felt like the day where the offensive line wouldn’t be the major topic, it became the major topic. It’s not so much that Mike Iupati is likely headed for IR – he hadn’t been playing – but Alex Boone is also […]

Cardinals will be without both left guards Alex Boone, Mike Iupati vs. 49ers

Cardinals will be without both left guards Alex Boone, Mike Iupati vs. 49ers

The Cardinals lead the NFL in pressures allowed. This is a huge opportunity for the 49ers. The Arizona Cardinals have gone through two left guards through the first three games of the 2017 NFL season, and they will have neither available on Sunday when they host the San Francisco 49ers. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians announced on Friday that Alex Boone will miss a couple weeks with a pectoral injury, and Mike Iupati is going on injured reserve due to a bone spur in his elbow. Iupati opened the season as the Cardinals starter, shortly after the Cardinals signed Boone. Iupati aggravated...

49ers-Cardinals injury report: Alex Boone a DNP at practice, Mike Iupati limited

49ers-Cardinals injury report: Alex Boone a DNP at practice, Mike Iupati limited

The Cardinals have some questions at left guard, but might be welcoming back some players. The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals released their first practice participation reports on Wednesday, and the 49ers are seeing progress from several of their injured players. Arizona is expecting some players back, but still has some questions on the offensive line. Left guard Alex Boone suffered a chest injury on Monday Night Football this past week, and was a DNP on Wednesday. The team does not think the injury is major, but his status for this week is a question mark. Boone moved into the...

49ers will see plenty of familiar faces vs. the Cardinals

49ers will see plenty of familiar faces vs. the Cardinals

Six prominent former 49ers players are currently on the Cardinals’ active roster. When the San Francisco 49ers play the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, there will be plenty of familiar faces on the opposing sideline. A total of six former 49ers players are currently with the Cardinals in some capacity, though not all of them will play on Sunday. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert will be inactive as he is the third quarterback on Arizona’s depth chart, while guard Alex Boone won’t play due to a pectoral injury he sustained in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. Boone is a recent addition after...

Alex Boone suffered MNF injury, status for 49ers-Cardinals is TBD

Alex Boone suffered MNF injury, status for 49ers-Cardinals is TBD

The former 49er guard signed with the Cardinals in Week 1. His status for Week 4 vs. the 49ers is unclear. The San Francisco 49ers face the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, and it means facing a host of former teammates. The most notable changed teams this offseason, with Antoine Bethea and Phil Dawson both joining the Cardinals after the 49ers cut them. However, the 49ers will likely not face one notable former teammate. Left guard Alex Boone is likely to miss some time with an injury suffered during Monday Night Football, according to Kent Somers. Boone was cut by the Minnesota Vikings at...
