“It’s pathetic” :Cardinals’ Head Coach confirmed a devastating setback as the 23-year-old star ruled-out of Texans Clash…

The Arizona Cardinals are set to face a significant setback as they enter Week 11 without star wide receiver Michael Wilson, who has been ruled out of the clash against the Houston Texans. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that Wilson, dealing with a shoulder injury, experienced a setback during the week, leading to his absence in the upcoming game.

The 23-year-old rookie, a third-round pick from Stanford, has made a notable impact on the Cardinals’ wide receiver corps with his impressive 6-2 frame and route-winning abilities. Since joining in the offseason, Wilson has garnered praise from teammates and coaches alike.

With 28 receptions for 435 yards and two touchdowns, Wilson has been a significant contributor, averaging 15.5 yards per catch. His playing time has also been substantial, ranking second only to Marquise Brown in offensive snaps at receiver with 71.4%.

Given Wilson’s absence, the Cardinals have signed Andre Baccellia to the active roster from the practice squad in preparation for the Texans clash.

This setback is not the first for Wilson, who missed Week 9 due to a shoulder injury. Additionally, wide receiver Zach Pascal has been ruled out with a hamstring issue. As the Cardinals aim for their third win of the season, Rondale Moore and Greg Dortch are expected to see increased snaps.

Wilson, just one multi-touchdown game away from joining Cardinals legends Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin, remains a promising rookie.

Kyler Murray, back in the starting lineup after recovering from ACL surgery, expressed his admiration for Wilson, emphasizing the rookie’s commitment, versatility, and positive impact on the team.

The Cardinals are scheduled to face the Houston Texans at 11:00 AM Arizona Time, and the official inactives will be released 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
