NFL injury report, Week 14: Andre Ellington, Michael Floyd, Jake Long all miss practice for Cardinals, Rams

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the first injury report of the week in preparation for Sunday's game.

The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams began their week of practice and the injury reports are out. Both teams had key players not practicing because of injury. For the Cardinals, it was Andre Ellington and Michael Floyd who did not participate, while the Rams were without two starting offensive linemen -- center Scott Wells and starting left tackle Jake Long.

Floyd was out with an ankle injury, but it seems that it is not serious. Darren Urban tweeted that Bruce Arians expects Floyd to be okay.

Ellington, who missed the game against the Eagles last Sunday, also sat out, resting his knee. According to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, Ellington's knee is no longer sore and he expects to play on Sunday against the Rams. He admitted that missing the game Sunday was probably a good idea.

Arizona had several other players limited -- OLB Marcus Benard (shoulder), TE Jim Dray (back), TE Rob Housler (ankle), S Rashad Johnson (ribs), ILB Kevin Minter (shoulder), QB Carson Palmer (elbow) and P Dave Zastudil (ankle).

The Rams were without Jake Long, who is going through the league's concussion protocol.

Wells has a fractured fibula and it is believed that he is done for the season, even though he has not been placed on injured reserve.

Also missing practice were linebacker Darren Bates (concussion) and cornerback Brandon McGee. guard Harvey Dahl was on the report with a knee injury, but participated fully, while defensive end Eugene Sims (neck) sat out.
