FLOWERY BRANCH – Arizona wide receiver Early Doucet has a groin injury and has been declared out of Sunday’s game with the Falcons, according to the Arizona Republic.
He’s been battling with an abdominal area issue since training camp and underwent a battery of tests for a sports hernia on Wednesday.
Running back Beanie Wells has a bruised knee.
“He (Wells) did some limited work (Wednesday),” Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt said on the conference call. “We’re going to really test him tomorrow and hope with the idea that he’ll practice Friday and have a chance to play on Sunday. We’re getting Early (Doucet) checked out, he went to see the doctor today. Thought it was his groin, so we’re waiting on the information back on that.”
Doucet, the former LSU standout, was expected to fill the void left in Arizona’s passing game with the trade of Anquan Boldin to the Baltimore Ravens.
