A final look at the injury report before the game on Sunday.

On Friday, the final injury report came out and the biggest thing any Cardinals fans would notice is that Carson Palmer is out.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Drew Stanton would start in Denver against the Broncos on Sunday.

One other player is "out" for Sunday -- rookie linebacker Glenn Carson. He did not practice Friday with an ankle injury.

Starting right guard Paul Fanaika was limited in practice and is officially questionable for the game, but Arianss expects he will play and start. Should he be unable to go on Sunday, Jonathan Cooper would get his shot to start.

Three other players were limited in practice -- running back Andre Ellington (foot), defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) and punter Dave Zastudil (groin) -- but all are probable for the game.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson was out of practice on Friday because he was sick. He is probable.

Linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) and tight end Rob Housler (hip) are also probable for the game. They were full participants in practice.

For the Denver Broncos, only two players were even limited in practice. Safety David Bruton and linebacker Lerentee McCray were those guys and are questionable for the game.

Every one else -- guard Louis Vasquez (rib cage), safety Quinton Carter (knee), tight end Virgil Green (concussion), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and linebacker Danny Travathan (knee) -- practiced fully and are probable for the game.

Head coach John Fox said "there was a strong possibility" Travathan would be active on Sunday. Travathan has yet to play this season, as he suffered a fractured shin in August.
