A final look at the injury report for both the Cardinals and Giants.

Both the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Giants have released their final injury reports. There aren't any big surprises and, thanks to last week's game, the status of running back Andre Ellington feels less stressful.

For the Arizona Cardinals, linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) are out for the game on Sunday. That means more Tommy Kelly and Ed Stinson, and it also means that we might see rookie Kareem Martin active on Sunday.

Quarterback Carson Palmer is listed as questionable with a sore shoulder that limited him in practice all week. Ellington is also questionable. After sitting out Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, he was limited on Friday. He expects to play. Palmer is expected to play as well.

Also listed as questionable is punter Dave Zastudil.

Guard Paul Fanaika (knee), safety Rashad Johnson (ankle) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) are all probable for the game. According to ESPN's John Clayton on the show NFL Insiders, it sounds like Mathieu will play.

For New York, they have four players out for the game -- WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring), T James Brewer (back), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) and DT Markus Kuhn (ankle).

Punter Steve Weatherford is questionable, but he expects to be available Sunday, as does the coaching staff.

Everyone else on the report -- DT Cullen Jenkins (hip), LB Jon Beason (foot), T Charles Brown (shoulder) and DE Jason Pierre-Paul (neck) -- is probable.
