Cards Approaching Full Strength

The Arizona Cardinals' offense could be at full strength for the first time all season during a Week 7 matchup in Seattle.

The Arizona offense could be at full strength Sunday in Seattle for the first time in a month.

Receivers Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (hernia) expect to be in the lineup after missing significant time with injuries.

Breaston has missed two games after undergoing knee surgery to repair torn meniscus. Doucet hasn't played since the season opener after undergoing surgery for a sports hernia.

It's an opportune time for them to return. The Cardinals are starting a rookie quarterback, Max Hall, who needs all the help he can get. And Arizona is playing the Seahawks, who share the NFC West lead with the Cardinals at 3-2.

Breaston is more likely to return than Doucet. Breaston did some running in Monday's light practice and is insistent he will play.

Breaston starts opposite Larry Fitzgerald and is a dynamic big-play receiver. Doucet, who didn't practice Monday, is the No. 3 receiver.

The Cardinals have been going with Fitzgerald and four young receivers. If Doucet and Breaston return, then Stephen Williams and Andre Roberts would fill the fourth and fifth roles.

That likely would mean Max Komar would be inactive.
