Week 6 injury report: Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota VIkings

Oct 12, 2018, 1:35 PM | Updated: 1:43 pm

The Arizona Cardinals (1-4) finally have a dab of momentum.

A win over the injury-plagued San Francisco 49ers leads to a much more difficult road test against the Minnesota Vikings (2-2-1) in Week 6. Led by newcomer Kirk Cousins at quarterback, Minnesota is coming off a 23-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Before that, two losses in a row came to the hapless Buffalo Bills and NFC West-leading Los Angeles Rams.

So it’s hard to know what the Cardinals will see from their opponent. Here’s what they will know regarding the health of the Vikings heading into the showdown at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday morning.
