Friday update: Coach Kilff Kingsbury says that Christian Kirk will not play in Week 3 due to his groin injury, per Darren Urban. Larry Fitzgerald and Any Isabella should see the best bump in usage.


AZArizona Cardinals receiver Christian Kirk wasn’t seen at Friday’s practice after missing both Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury, per AZCardinals.com’s Kyle Odegard. Kirk’s status for Week 3 against the Lions appears to be in doubt.

Kirk has taken a back seat to DeAndre Hopkins this season, as have all the Cardinals pass catchers, but he is the No. 3 receiver behind Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald. We will likely get more of Andy Isabella this week, who has a chance for big plays despite low target numbers.
