NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have had three defensive starters leave Sunday's game against the Saints with injuries, and team officials say all three are questionable to return.
Starting outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander has injured his right foot, free safety Rashad Johnson has a hand injury and outside linebacker Sam Acho has a left ankle injury.
Alexander hurt his foot late in the first quarter while pursuing a pass to Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.
Johnson was hurt in the second quarter and Acho was injured in the third quarter.
Including the absence of nose tackle Dan Williams because of the death of his father, Arizona was missing four defensive starters in the second half.
