A few quick notes on Seahawks, Cardinals
By Mike Sando
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Items I wanted to pass along before my column posts here in a bit:
- Early Doucet has overtaken Jerheme Urban as the Cardinals' fourth wide receiver. Nothing is permanent, of course, and Doucet did drop a pass Sunday. But it's looking like the Cardinals wanted to make this move. Urban played zero snaps. He did not even play on special teams.
- The Cardinals missed inside linebacker Gerald Hayes far more than I expected. I think that partly explains why Seattle's Justin Forsett enjoyed so much success running inside against Seattle. The Cardinals need to get Hayes back on the field in time to face the Rams' Steven Jackson. Ali Highsmith had problems.
- Seattle running back Julius Jones will stay overnight at an area hospital after suffering a broken rib, coach Jim Mora said. "He's not in any danger," Mora said, "but we're going to play it safe."
