Cardinals’ Warner returns for second half

After taking a vicious hit that forced him out of the game to end the first half, Cardinals QB Kurt Warner is back on the field for the start of the second half in Saturday’s divisional-round playoff game against the Saints.

Warner was back on the field warming up at halftime following a hit from Saints DE Bobby McCray during an interception return in the second quarter. He was announced as questionable to return with a chest injury and was replaced by backup QB Matt Leinart for the team’s final drive of the first half, which ended with a missed 50-yard field goal attempt by Neil Rackers.

Warner completed his only pass attempt on the Cardinals’ first drive of the half, and is now 9 of 13 passing for 117 yards with one interception.

Two other injured starters — CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (sprained left knee) and FS Antrel Rolle (head) — remain out to start the second half. Rodgers-Cromartie doesn’t appear likely to return, as he’s on the sideline dressed in street clothes with crutches.
