The Arizona Cardinals had Michael Floyd and Andre Ellington to practice on Thursday, but their starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, did not practice the entire day because of the elbow injury he suffered early in the game last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Palmer was listed on the team's injury report as limited for the second day in a row.

For those who were wondering when the injury happened, it can be traced back to the play in the offense's first series when he was sacked and stripped of the ball. Notice how he holds his arm against his body after the play is over.

Palmer, during media access, told reporters that it was that play when he got hurt. He said he hoped to do more on Friday than he did on Thursday. His injury did affect Palmer's throws the rest of the game, which could explain the underthrown balls as the game went on.

Floyd and Ellington, who both did not participate in practice on Wednesday, were upgraded to limited on Thursday.

The other players that were limited in practice were linebacker Marcus Benard (shoulder), safety Rashad Johnson (ribs) and Kevin Minter (shoulder).

Jim Dray (back), Rob Housler (ankle) and Dave Zastudil were upgraded from limited to full.

For St. Louis, they saw starting left tackle Jake Long return to practice after being cleared to practice followng last week.

Starting Rams center Scott Wells was listed on the injury reports as a non-participate, but Wells will be unable to play for the rest of the season. Wells was the only non-participant.

Eugene Sims and Harvey Dahl were upgraded to full participants. Darren Bates, Long and Brandon McGee,
