NFL injury report, week 2: Andre Ellington sits out, Carson Palmer limited for Arizona Cardinals

A first look at the health of both team leading into Week 2.

The first injury report of the week came out on Wednesday and both teams had a few players who sat out of practice.

Arizona had three. Running back Andre Ellington (foot), linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) all sat out.

Rucker has already been declared as doubtful for the game on Sunday.

The Ellington injury is interesting. Reports say he cannot injure it more. Ellington says it is sore more than it is causing him pain. But he was in a walking boot. It looks like the plan for him in practice will be to sit out the start of the week and give him more reps as the week goes on.

There were some new players on the injury report, all listed as limited in practice. Starting quarterback Carson Palmer showed up with a right shoulder injury, guard Paul Fanaika was on there for his knee and safety Rashad Johnson appeared for an ankle injury. Punter Dave Zastudil was also limited with his left groin.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu practiced fully.

For the Giants, their list of players who did not practice was much longer. Five players sat out on Wednesday -- WR Odell Beckham Jr (hamstring), T James Brewer (back), DT Cullen Jenkins (hip), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring), DT Markus Kuhn (ankle) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle).

LB Jon Beason (foot) and T Charles Brown (shoulder) were limited.
