The Arizona Cardinals' satisfaction from their stunning victory over the Packers in Green Bay has been tempered by news that rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk and starting left guard Mike Iupati are out for the season with injuries.Kirk http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/mason-crosby-jersey , who was developing into a dynamic force on offense, has a broken foot. Iupati, who has battled injuries throughout his time with Arizona, has a knee injury."Christian, a great season," coach Steve Wilks said at his Monday news conference. "There's no setbacks for 2019. I'm real excited to get him back, did some great things. You can see from the game yesterday, really progressing and moving in the right direction."A second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, Kirk is second to Larry Fitzgerald with 43 receptions and leads the team with 590 yards receiving. He caught three passes for 54 yards and had a 23-yard gain on a fly sweep before being injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 20-17 win. That 23-yard run was followed by a 37-yard reception, Josh Rosen's longest pass of the day, and led to Zane Gonzalez's 44-yard field goal that tied the game at 10.Kirk stayed in for a couple of plays after he was injured."It says a lot about his personality, his character," Wilks said. "He tried to fight through it. He went out there a couple of more plays and tried to endure but the pain was just too much for him."The Cardinals expect a lot from Kirk in future seasons."I've said it before, this guy's a pro's pro Womens Kentrell Brice Jersey ," Wilks said. "The way he prepares, the way he comes in each and every day is very exciting to see, so the future's very bright with him."Iupati started 10 games this season and missed two due to injury after taking a pay cut to return this year. His departure further mixes up an offensive line that was going with its eighth combination of starters this season in that game. Colby Gossett, signed off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad a month ago, filled in for Iupati.The injuries did not diminish the magnitude of the unexpected win. The Cardinals were in a dark place after consecutive losses to Oakland and the Los Angeles Chargers left them 2-9. Some were criticizing their effort, but they went into cold, snowy Lambeau Field and won there for the first time in nine tries. They hadn't won at Green Bay in 49 years, which was pre-Lambeau.Two-touchdown underdogs, Arizona's victory cost Packers coach Mike McCarthy his job. McCarthy was fired a couple of hours after the game ended.It was just the second loss for Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers in 18 games at Lambeau in the month of December. His last home loss in December was Dec. 7, 2008, vs. Houston."Growing up you see how dominant Green Bay is in December, especially at home," said Cardinals rookie running back Chase Edmonds, who rushed for both Arizona touchdowns in a breakout game http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/corey-linsley-jersey , "but you know coach Wilks talked about it all week, we're going up there to win a football game and nothing else."Arizona rushed for a season-high 182 yards, averaging 6.3 yards per attempt.Rodgers, meanwhile, had one of the worst home games of his career, completing 31 of 50 passes for 233 yards. His passer rating of 79.8 was 30 below his career home average. Green Bay's 17 points were its fewest at home since Dallas held the Packers to 16 two years ago. Aaron Jones managed just 36 yards on 11 carries. He entered the game averaging six yards per carry.It was that kind of day for the Packers. And all of it against an Arizona defense that surrendered 45 unanswered points in a 45-10 loss to the Chargers the previous week."I thought it started with our disguise," Wilks said. "I thought we did a great job of really just trying to show him different looks."There was no bigger play than Fitzgerald's sliding grab of Rosen's 32-yard throw to convert a third-and-23 late in the game. Fitzgerald just got his hand underneath the ball and cradled it from the turf."Phenomenal," Wilks said. "Typical of Larry. I don't think nine times out of 10 somebody else probably wouldn't make that catch."The Cardinals moved on to get the game-winning 44-yard field goal from Gonzalez, signed by the team just a week earlier.It was just the third win of the season for the Cardinals, who are home against Detroit on Sunday. The players had a rare Monday off because of the equally rare victory.AP NFL: s://apnews/NFL and s://AP_NFL Donald Penn acknowledged being a big rusty when he got his first game action in more than nine months at an unfamiliar position.He was beaten for a sack on the opening drive for the Oakland Raiders and allowed a few other pressures in his first NFL start at right tackle after 170 games and three Pro Bowl selections on the left side."I was excited to get out there and try it out live," Penn said. "It's a different speed in practice than it is in the game. I wish I could have done some things a lot better than I did. I saw some things that I need to fix and some things I need to work on. The biggest part of it was just trying to build up my confidence, trying to get some confidence in this foot, pushing off on it and planting and sustaining against other big guys going into me. That was the biggest part."The 35-year-old Penn had not played a game since Dec. 15 when he injured his right foot in a game, leading to a season-ending surgery. Penn missed the entire offseason program and watched as the Raiders planned for life after he's done by drafting Kolton Miller in the first round to be the team's long-term left tackle.Penn started training camp on the physically unable to perform list and took a pay cut for this season before being activated two weeks ago. He was then immediately moved to the right side Womens Antonio Morrison Jersey , where he had played only 24 career snaps in an emergency back in the 2016 opener.Penn said he's still getting used to the switch, which he has equated to learning how to write with the opposite hand. Penn has spent extra time on the practice field since coming back from the injury and vows to be ready for the season opener Sept. 10, against the Los Angeles Rams.He said he's even open to playing the exhibition finale on Thursday night at Seattle just to get more work even though the rest of the starting offense is expected to sit out."The biggest thing I need from myself is just more repetition, just more practice," he said. "The good thing is, time is on my side. I have time to get this stuff fixed, time to get more comfortable over there and get a better feel on that side and the different mechanics and techniques over there. That's one thing I'm happy about is that time is on my side."Penn showed he still needs some work after getting 20 snaps in the exhibition game against Green Bay.Oakland's opening drive that game stalled when Packers linebacker Reggie Gilbert bull-rushed Penn and knocked him into quarterback Derek Carr, forcing a fumble that the Raiders recovered. That turned a possible touchdown into a field goal.Penn was beaten a couple other times but coach Jon Gruden said he was pleased with the overall play."I'm sure people will point to that and say it wasn't a good performance," Gruden said. "But I thought for his first time back on the field in a long time, going against the first team in the Packers, I thought he did some good things."
