Monday would normally be a day off for the Arizona Cardinals veterans because of the victory, but with the short week and the team having to play the Rams on Thursday, Monday was like a regular Wednesday, which meant practice and an injury report.
Now, the practices are just walkthroughs, but there were players who sat out.
Arizona had three not available. Guard Paul Fanaika (ankle) and cornerback Antonio Cromartie (ankle) sat out practice. Both are day-to-day with their availability. Safety Tyrann Mathieu has already been ruled out because of thumb surgery next week. He might be available to play in next week's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
After those who missed practice, there was quite the list of players limited. Lorenzo Alexander(knee), Larry Fitzgerald (knee), Larry Foote (foot), Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder), Drew Stanton (ankle/knee), Ed Stinson (toe) and Jared Veldheer (ankle) rounded out the list.
Bruce Arians told the media Cromartie's injury "is some kind of tear, but it's not the Achilles."
"It's a sprained ankle of sorts," he continued and said there is a chance the veteran could play on Thursday.
The Rams had a long list of player who sat out of Monday's practice. In fact, only one player listed was even limited. That was tight end Cory Harkey (knee).
WR Kenny Britt (non-injury), DE Alex Carrington (thigh), LB Will Herring (foot), LB James Laurinitis (ankle), DE Chris Long (ankle), T Roger Saffold (shoulder) and C Scott Wells (elbow) were all listed as DNPs.
