Stinson was held out of practice all week due to his toe injury, making his absence from the game on Thursday unsurprising. Robert Nkemdiche may see a couple extra snaps with Stinson out.
Stinson was plagued by injuries to his calf, groin and oblique throughout August, yet he was absent from Week 1 injury reports. With plenty of depth along the defensive front, he may not be needed often in 2016.
Head coach Bruce Arians relayed Tuesday that Stinson is "day-to-day" with "some form [of] muscle, either oblique or groin" injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
The ailment places a cloud over his immediate availability for practice or preseason action. Rest is likely the best course of action for one of the Cardinals' key depth defensive linemen.
