Jerraud Powers is doubtful to return to Sunday's contest at San Francisco due to a calf injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Powers entered the contest with 40 tackles (35 solo), one interception, and one sack on the season. However, he tallied just two solo tackles before departing the game. While he's unlikely to return to the field Sunday, his progress will be watched closely this week to see if he'll play next Sunday in St. Louis.
Jerraud Powers (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday at Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
After emerging from Week 7 with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, it was believed that at least a moderate absence was in store for Powers. However, he'll gut out the ailment, as he keeps a hold of his starting gig opposite Patrick Peterson.

Powers may actually be closer to doubtful, as he's dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain and wasn't able to practice this week. Justin Bethel (foot) will likely join the starting lineup alongside Patrick Peterson.
Jerraud Powers didn't practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Powers logged the first of what will likely be many absences from practice, as he's expected to miss multiple weeks due to a Grade 2 hamstring strain. In his stead, Justin Bethel picked up 34 snaps Monday against the Ravens, tallying just two solo tackles and one fumble recovery, but his production should pick up working opposite Patrick Peterson. As for Powers, expect him to be ruled out well in advance of Sunday's game in Cleveland.
Jerraud Powers (hamstring) suffered a Grade 2 strain and will likely be out for multiple weeks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports.
Powers, the relative weak link in an otherwise excellent secondary, will likely be replaced by Justin Bethel in the starting lineup. Powers is averaging five tackles per contest, but with 12 of those coming in one game, he hasn't been a reliable IDP. Bethel will surely be tested by opposing quarterbacks, so he could make for a decent option the next few weeks.
