Looks like Drake is out for a couple of games. Edmunds has been good and perhaps underused. Will Eno Benjamin get a chance come in?

Is it common for running backs to have a short shelf life? Battering rams. Drake has had his moments but looks slightly less explosive than last season. David Johnson looked banged up the last two years.

Drake has been more of a power back this season, running straight up the middle a lot, hence why he looks a bit less explosive than last season. Edmunds will be a good replacement for a few games.

Once they get to 27-28 their output usually stats tapering off.
Would have to be mainly the physical toll of running through traffic and getting smashed on a daily basis.
They would also have a higher risk of career ending or physically limiting injuries. Only takes one guy to fall across your knee and suddenly the explosive power and the speed of the cuts isn't what it was before the injury

Cardinals placed CB Byron Murphy on the reserve/COVID list.
Devon Kennard and Murphy were the two players who tested positive after returning from Arizona's bye week. The Cardinals' facilities have since been shut down until all protocols are met. Murphy is likely out for Sunday against the Dolphins, pinning Kevin Peterson for extended reps off the bench in Week 9.

Frustrating game

Had our chances but some missed tackles, that early fumble and a godawful drive in Q4 were costly. Not to mention the field goal attempt...

Strange that we didn't target Hopkins once in the first half
