The first day of practice preparing for the Week 17 tilt between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers is done and it seems like everyone on both teams is at least a little bit banged up. There were 14 49ers and 13 Cardinals who appeared on the first injury report of the week.
Good news -- two players were full participants for Arizona. Larry Fitzgerald (knee) and Tyrann Mathieu (thumb) did not take any practice time off.
There many who were limited for the Cardinals. That list includes linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (knee), receiver Jaron Brown (toe), defensive end Calais Campbell (hip), guard Jonathan Cooper (wrist), safety Rashad Johnson (ankle), guard Ted Larsen (shoulder) and linebacker Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder).
Four player sat out -- safety Deone Bucannon (knee), tight end John Carlson (calf), linebacker Larry Foote (knee) and QB Drew Stanton (knee).
Head coach Bruce Arians was optimistic Bucannon and Foote would be back on the field on Thursday.
San Francisco was equally banged up.
Eight players did not practice -- guard Alex Boone (knee), cornerback Perrish Cox (shoulder), running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), receiver Stevie Johnson (knee), center Marcus Martin (illness), safety Eric Reid (consussion), defensive tackle Justin Smith (back) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin).
Four players were limited -- cornerback Trumaine Brock (hamstring), linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb), cornerback Chris Culliver (knee) and receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring).
Receivers Brandon Lloyd (groin) and Michael Crabtree (knee) practiced fully.
