On Wednesday, both the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles released their first injury report of the week. There is good news for Cardinals fans -- the team is getting healthier.
The biggest news came from quarterback Carson Palmer. He no longer is on the injury report and he said he no longer has to worry about the shoulder. He even has resumed lifting weights. This bodes well.
Defensive end Calais Campbell did not practice. There is hope he can practice sometime this week and play on Sunday, which would be a boost to the defense. "I've got to practice at least Friday," Campbell said to reporters (via AZCardinals.com). "Personally, I feel like I could play (without), but I won't be the best I can be unless I have at least one day of practice."
Tight end Troy Niklas also sat out. Head coach Bruce Arians is doubtful he will be able to play, but hopes he can get something from him in practice this week. Niklas has a high ankle sprain.
There were three players listed as limited -- running back Andre Ellington (foot), receiver John Brown (ankle) and safety Rashad Johnson (knee). Ellington was not wearing a boot on his sore foot, something new for Wednesday.
Defensive end Frostee Rucker is also on the injury report with his calf injury, but he was a full participant in practice.
For the Eagles, they got some players back in practice. Receiver Brad Smith has already been ruled out of Sunday's game, but center Jason Kelce (hernia), linebacker Mychal Kendrick (calf), guard Evan Mathis (knee), running back Darren Sproles (knee) were back on a limited basis.
Running back Chris Polk (hamstring) and linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) fully practiced.
