Injury Update On Cardinals Star Safety

It's not looking great for him this week. 

Arizona Cardinals star safety Budda Baker was a non-participant at Thursday's practice. 

With no practice reps yet this week, it appears the safety is heading in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's clash with the Seattle Seahawks.
Even defensive coordinator Vance Joseph was unsure of Baker's status for this week, but was hoping he could get some drills in on Friday. 

A loss to Baker would be a big blow for the Cardinals, as he is the team's leading tackler with 60 (39 solo), in addition to one forced fumble and two passes defended. 

Time is running out for the Cardinals to be a serious contender this year, as the team is 3-5 and last place in the NFC West. 

It's hard to imagine that the Seahawks would be in first place in the NFC West by Week 9, ahead of the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.
