Wednesday came and went, giving us the first injury reports of the week. For the Arizona Cardinals, it was mostly more of the same, although there were a couple of new additions.
A couple of players were simply unable to practice for Arizona. Linebacker John Abraham is not cleared yet, as he has not passed the league's concussion protocol, and running back Jonathan Dwyer was taken into police custody, questioned and arrested on Wednesday.
After those two, there were three Cardinals who did not participate in practice -- the frequent fliers of the injury report so far this season. Running back Andre Ellington (foot) sat out, as he has to start each week. Linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) also sat out.
Quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) and punter Dave Zastudil (groin) were limited as they have been, but linebacker Larry Foote (shoulder) was a new limited player.
Linebacker Kevin Minter (quad) and center Lyle Sendlein (ankle) were new additions to the list, but practiced fully.
For the San Francisco 49ers, they had a bunch of players who did not participate. Here is the from the report for everyone.
Did not participate: CB Tramaine Brock (toe), OT Anthony Davis (hamstring), TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee), C Marcus Martin (knee), TE Vance McDonald (knee), DE Justin Smith (not injury related)
Limited participation: OT Joe Staley (knee)
Full participation: RB Carlos Hyde (calf)
At Niners Nation it is not believed that Staley's injury is serious. The biggest questions are whether or not the Niners will have either of their two top tight ends on Sunday.
