Offensively, the Cardinals will welcome back Michael Floyd to the line-up. Floyd has missed most of the preseason but is back ready to build on his breakout season of 2013.
On the defensive side the ball the Arizona Cardinals are welcoming back some key players. Linebacker John Abraham returned to camp last week after missing three weeks of practice due to personal issues. Abraham is not yet in playing shape and will not likely factor into the game on Sunday. However his appearance is a boost to the defense who just lost DT Darnell Dockett for the season due to an ACL injury.
Safety Tyrann Mathieu also returned to practice last week after being activated from the PUP list. Unlike Abraham, the Cardinals safety is in playing shape and may see some limited action on Sunday against the Bengals.
