S Budda Baker has a chance of playing vs. Rams

Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker suffered an ankle injury on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks that was originally reported as having him miss, as a best-case scenario, two or three games.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury ruled him out early this week and he was a DNP on the first two injury reports of the week, but he was on the field for the open portion of practice on Friday.

He has a chance of playing.

“Starting the week, I heard zero-percent chance, and obviously he’s been fighting us to get back out there,” Kingsbury said. “We’ll see how he progresses over the next couple of days, but he’s a special human and wanted to be out there today.”

Losing Baker, even for a game, would be a big blow to the defense.

If he is healthy enough to play and is able to make some sort of impact without making the injury worse, it would be a big help as the Cardinals face the Rams in a critical game for the success of the rest of the season.
