Cardinals Star Safety Suffers High Ankle Sprain

This is the last news the Arizona Cardinals wanted to hear.

Safety Budda Baker has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. However, the Cardinals are hopeful he'll be out for just 2-3 weeks.
Last week, the Cardinals held Baker out of the first two practices before he made a limited practice on Friday and entered the weekend with a questionable designation due to an ankle injury. It seemed doubtful that he would play, however, he did and now it appears he's aggravated the ankle injury even more,

In Baker's absence, inside linebacker Isaiah Simmons could be a candidate to fill in at the safety position.

In nine games this season, the twenty-six-year-old has recorded 71 total tackles, one forced fumble and two passes defended.
