Getting old is never easy. Being young doesn't guarantee quintessential health and unequivocal happiness, either. To that end, just take a look at the Cardinals' 2013 draft class. And if you do, bow your head for a moment of silence.
It appears the Cardinals will play the final three games of the season without rookie Tyrann Mathieu, who suffered a left knee injury while returning a kick in the third quarter. The Cardinals fear Mathieu suffered a torn ACL, which would require surgery and rehabilitation of six to nine months.

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will be a game-time decision Sunday but coach Bruce Arians said he expects him to play against the St. Louis Rams. Palmer is nursing an elbow injury he suffered in the first quarter of last Sunday's game against the Eagles and has been limited in practice. He's officially listed as questionable.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has yet to throw much in practice this week because of a right elbow injury suffered in the first quarter last Sunday against the Eagles. "A little bit, not much," Palmer replied when asked if threw in practice on Thursday. "I think I'll throw tomorrow."

Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd and running back Andre Ellington missed practice Wednesday because of injuries, and both are day-to-day, said coach Bruce Arians.

Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is questionable for Sunday's game with the Eagles after suffering a left knee injury while running a pass route late in practice on Thursday. Ellington underwent tests on Friday morning and didn't participate in practice later in the day.
The Jaguars found out what life would be like without standout middle linebacker Paul Posluszny on Sunday.

The Jaguars held the Cardinals to 14 rushing yards on 24 carries, a 0.6-yard average. Arizona had been averaging 93.6 yards on the ground, ranking 24th in the league entering Sunday. The Cardinals’ longest run went five yards. read more
Two years ago, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew led the league with 1,606 rushing yards and averaged 4.7 yards a carry. Last year, he played only six games before he was lost for the season with a Lisfranc injury, but he still averaged 4.8 yards a carry with 414 yards on 86 carries even though he missed training camp in a holdout. This year, he’s not having that kind of production. He’s averaging only 2.9 yards a carry — 455 yards on 157 carries — after the Arizona Cardinals held him to 23 yards in 14 carries Sunday, an average of 1.6 yards a carry. read more
Josh McCown is the man, folks. As Jay Cutler hobbled off the turf inside the Walter Payton Dome on Thursday, sporting a snappy orange jersey, orange workout shorts and a charcoal-gray cast on his left ankle and calf, you knew what was up. The 34-year-old McCown, who has journeyed from the Cardinals to the Lions to the Raiders to the Dolphins to the Panthers to the United Football League’s Hartford Colonials to the 49ers and thence to the Bears, is the offensive...
Most defensive ends who were as productive as Calais Campbell in 2012 would reflect proudly upon the havoc they wrought. Despite missing three games to injury, Campbell finished second on the Cardinals with 6 1/2 sacks, knocked down seven passes, led the team with 14 quarterback hits and blocked the sixth field-goal attempt of his career.
