A look at the final report before Thursday Night Football.

The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams are on deck, set to play the only game of the night to kick off Week 15. It was a short week for both teams, which meant practices  weren't really practices. There still were injury reports and the situation for both teams looks mostly clear.

For the Arizona Cardinals, two players were ruled out. Safety Tyrann Mathieu is out with a thumb injury, having had surgery last week. However, head coach Bruce Arians did note Mathieu would return to practice on Monday.

Guard Paul Fanaika is also out with an ankle sprain. For the second game in a row, Jonathan Cooper will get to start on the offensive line. Ted Larsen will play right guard, the position Fanaika plays, and Cooper will play on the left side.

The player in question for the week is cornerback Antonio Cromartie. He suffered an ankle injury against the Chiefs, which was initially believed to be a ruptured Achilles. Cromartie is questionable for the game. Even he said, "I couldn't really tell you until (Thursday)."

Defensive lineman Ed Stinson is also questionable.

Everyone else is probable, including receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who is still only a couple of weeks removed from an MCL sprain.  "I'm good," he said. "Good enough to go."

Everyone else listed is probable for the game.

For the Rams, they are healthy. Every single player on the team was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and, with the exception of defensive en Chris Long, everyone is probable that is listed on the injury report. Long is questionable.
