Football is back.

The Arizona Cardinals kick off the 2020 campaign and Year 2 with Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

With no preseason, the injury report in Week 1 is light for Arizona with only third-string left tackle Josh Jones listed as out (ankle).

The 49ers will be without No. 1 wideout Deebo Samuel (foot), while first-round pick and Arizona State product Brandon Aiyuk is questionable (hamstring) after practicing on a limited basis the last two days. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in June while Aiyuk was put on a week-to-week timetable for a hamstring strain in late August.

As for the Cardinals, Larry Fitzgerald, DeAndre Hopkins and Maxx Williams practiced in full Friday after being limited at different points this week.
