Cardinals vs. 49ers injury report: John Abraham, Daryn Colledge do not practice on Christmas

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

A first look at the injury report for the week.

It was Christmas, but the Arizona Cardinals were still at practice in the afternoon. It was their first day of game prep for the Week 17 game at home against the San Francisco 49ers.

Three players sat out of practice. Linebacker John Abraham sat out with a groin injury, safety Rashad Johnson was still out with his high ankle sprain and guard Daryn Colledge sat out with a back injury.

The other six players listed were limited. They were defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (shoulder), tight end Rob Housler (groin), running back Rashard Mendenhall (finger), quarterback Carson Palmer (elbow, ankle), tackle Nate Potter (ribs) and linebacker Matt Shaughnessy (groin).

With Housler being limited, you wonder how much of his lack of playing time on Sunday (only four snaps) were due to his injury or due to his ineffectiveness and the two blown pass plays.

With Palmer, it is expected to see the ankle listed, however, the elbow once again has appeared. That is something to keep an eye on this week.

San Francisco did not practice on Christmas, but they still released an injury report, based on how things would have been had they practiced.

Three players would not have participated -- center Jonathan Goodwin (non-injury), linebacker Dan Skula (foot) and defensive tackle Justin Smith (shoulder).

Five players would have been limited -- RB Frank Gore (knee), G Mike Iupati (knee), WR Mario Manningham (knee), tight end Vance McDonald (ankle) and WR Kassim Osgood (shin).

The players that would have been full participants were LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), CB Tarell Brown (ribs) and WR Michael Crabtree (wrist, ankle).
