After a pretty impressive game last week, Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu will have a chance to start this week after Rashad Johnson suffered a “mild” MCL sprain and ankle sprain during Monday’s practice.
Johnson is considered to be day-to-day right now and likely won’t play this week against the Cowboys, according to AZCardinals.com.
“It just gives me an opportunity to go help my team,” Mathieu said. “Of course I wish Rashad a speedy recovery because he was one of those guys who showed me the ropes from a safety standpoint. But it gives me the opportunity to go out there and be there for my teammates.”
Mathieu had 2 tackles and 1 sack last week.
