Abraham had left the team last week after suffering from memory loss due to concussions, but returned to the team shortly after. Unfortunately, he was never able to get through the concussion protocol, and the team has apparently opted to end his season rather than allow him to try and return.

Cardinals force four turnovers in Week 2 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (9/14/14) The Cardinals ended up allowing 341 yards (81 rushing) Week 2 against the Giants, but Arizona forced four turnovers, which was key in a 25-14 win.
Arizona forced two interceptions and two fumbles Sunday. They also sacked Giants quarterback Eli Manning two times.
The special teams unit also got involved in the win, as returner Ted Ginn brought back a punt 71 yards for a touchdown with 10:10 remaining, giving Arizona the go-ahead score.
The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 vs. San Francisco.
The Cardinals DST continues to be among the best Fantasy units for the past two years. They were No. 11 in Fantasy points in 2012 and No. 6 last season. The unit produced 47 sacks, 20 interceptions, 10 fumble recoveries, five touchdowns and two safeties. That's consecutive seasons with 20-plus interceptions, 10-plus fumble recoveries and 38-plus sacks. The NFC West is loaded with quality DST options since the Seahawks (No. 1), 49ers (No. 5) and Rams (No. 7) joined the Cardinals as Top 10 options. We expect the Cardinals DST to remain an elite Fantasy option, and they are worth drafting as a No. 1 unit in all formats.
