We mentioned in an earlier blog today that Arizona QB Kurt Warner’s status for Sunday’s Vikings-Cardinals game is in question after the veteran signal-caller was knocked out of a Week 11 game and missed last week’s contest with a concussion.
Warner had practiced all last week leading up to the Tennessee game but then he woke up with stiffness in his neck on Sunday morning and the Cardinals held him out of action.
Adding to the notion that Warner’s status is in question is this report from azcardinals.com, which says that Warner and Leinart split reps during practice on Wednesday.
Considering the Cardinals had planned on Warner playing last week just 7 days after his concussion, and given his extra week of recovery since he wound up not playing, it would be surprising to see Warner on the bench again this upcoming Sunday against the Vikings.
While meeting with reporters on Wednesday, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said he expects that Warner will play.
And I agree. Although Warner’s availability won’t ultimately be known until 90 minutes prior to kickoff when teams are required to submit their list of inactive players, expect Warner to be the starter when the teams lineup for a rematch of last year’s 35-14 Vikings victory.
