Cardinals-Broncos injury report: WR Hollywood Brown expected to play, per report
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown (illness) is expected to play in Denver against the Broncos on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The team has ruled out defensive end Zach Allen (hand surgery) and cornerback Byron Murphy (back).
Meanwhile, guard Rashaad Coward (chest), cornerback Antonio Hamilton (back/illness), safety Charles Washington (chest) and cornerback Marco Wilson (neck) are questionable.
For the Denver Broncos, quarterback Russell Wilson passed concussion protocols but will be held out precautionarily against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday, head coach Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Friday.
The Broncos had hinted that Wilson was not guaranteed to play if he exited the concussion protocols. Backup quarterback Brett Rypien is in line to start in place of Wilson.
Denver receivers Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton are both out with hamstring injuries.
The 34-year-old Wilson has thrown for 2,805 yards (15th in the NFL), 11 touchdowns and six interceptions.
He’s 27th in ESPN’s QBR metric and completing a career-worst 60.4% of his passes in his first year away from the Seattle Seahawks.
His backup, Rypien, is in his third season and has completed 28 of 54 passes (51.9%) for 241 yards, a 4.5-yard-per-attempt average. He has a touchdown and two picks in two games played.
Arizona’s Colt McCoy takes over for Kyler Murray, who is now on the injured reserve after suffering an ACL injury against the New England Patriots this past Monday. McCoy himself landed on the injury report as a limited participant in practice with a neck issue this week.
In three games, McCoy has thrown for 702 yards, completing 69.2% of his passes. He has a touchdown and two picks.
