OL Justin Pugh, LB Zaven Collins should play vs. Panthers

The Arizona Cardinals could be missing another pair of starters when they take on the Carolina Panthers this coming Sunday, as receiver A.J. Green suffered a bone bruise and defensive tackle Rashard Lawrence injured his hand and had surgery Monday, but it could have been worse.

Two starters who exited the game on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, should be good to go this week against the Panthers.

Starting left guard Justin Pugh exited the game with an elbow injury in the first half but returned to the lineup after halftime and finished the game.

On Monday, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that Pugh would be day-to-day.

“I’m hopeful he can play on Sunday,” he said.

Collins injured his shoulder on the play the Rams scored their final touchdown in the fourth quarter.

“I think Zaven should be okay,” Kingsbury said. “We’ll see how he feels on Wednesday, but it didn’t seem to be too serious today when I saw him.”
