Arizona Cardinals offensive guard Mike Iupati (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the St. Louis Rams , Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
Making his Cardinals debut, Iupati will enter the starting lineup at left guard. The return of arguably the most adept run blocker on the team should help sustain, and perhaps even augment, the league's 13th-ranked offense on the ground entering Week 4.
Arizona Cardinals offensive guard Mike Iupati (knee) will start Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams , the Cardinals' official website reports.
The Cardinals' prized offseason acquisition is ready for his 2015 debut, after missing the first three games of the season. As one of the better run-blocking guards in the NFL, Iupati should prove quite useful to the Arizona Wildcats running backs, a group that will again be led by Chris Johnson in Week 4. Iupati is officially listed as probable.
After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 20, Iupati will wait another week to make his Cardinals debut. In his place,
Iupati was limited throughout the week of practice, but Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said earlier in the week that he expects his star guard to play. Iupati is seemingly on track to face his former team in his Cardinals debut.
Iupati missed much of training camp and the first two weeks of the regular season while recovering from a torn meniscus in his right knee. The impending return of the three-time Pro Bowler should bolster a running game that's still expected to be without the services of Andre Ellington (knee) for another week.
