LIVE: Cardinals @ Jaguars Updates

Follow for live analysis, big plays, injuries and highlights from the Arizona Cardinals Week 3 battle with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Cardinals look to go 3-0 in Jacksonville today against the Jaguars. 

Arizona is coming off of wins over Tennessee and Minnesota, defeating the Vikings 34-33 last weekend.

Jacksonville, with rookie head coach Urban Meyer and quarterback Trevor Lawrence, fell to the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos to start the year.




  • The Cardinals' inactive list confirms that wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, cornerbacks Byron Murphy Jr. and Marco Wilson and edge rusher Devon Kennard are active. All four players were questionable. 
  • Without Kelvin Beachum at right tackle, Justin Murray will have a starting role. 
  • For the Jaguars, C.J. Henderson is a starting cornerback. The loss of him and Tre Herndon is leaving their secondary without depth against a deep Cardinals receiving arsenal.
