The Arizona Cardinals held a Christmas Day practice. The San Francisco 49ers did not. San Francisco was required to still submit an injury report. It does not appear on the team website, but Darren Urban noted it in his notebook for Thursday.
On that report, seven players were DNP: guard Alex Boone (knee), cornerback Perrish Cox (shoulder), running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), wide receiver Steve Johnson (knee), safety Eric Reid (concussion), defensive end Justin Smith (back) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin). Center Marcus Martin (illness), cornerback Tremaine Brock (hamstring), linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb), cornerback Chris Culliver (knee) and wide receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) were called limited.
Arizona got collectively healthier and a little worse off all at once.
Linebacker Larry Foote sat out of practice again, making it two straight days. If he practices Friday, he will probably be good to go, but he has played all but one snap all season. If he were to miss Sunday's game, it would mean leaning on Kevin Minter, Glenn Carson and Kenny Demens.
Defensive tackle Dan Williams was an addition to the injury report. He did not practice with a foot injury. If it causes him to lose time, Arizona would be down yet another defensive lineman. It would force Alameda Ta'amu into the rotation.
Quarterback Drew Stanton was again a DNP.
Safety Deone Bucannon (knee) and tight end John Carlson (calf) were upgraded to limited. Defensive end Calais Campbell (hip), receiver Jaron Brown (foot) and guard Jonathan Cooper (wrist) remained limited.
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (knee), safety Rashad Johnson (ankle), guard Ted Larsen (shoulder) and linebacker Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder) were upgraded to full practice, while safety Tyrann Mathieu (thumb) and receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) were again full participants.
