Cardinals vs. Lions final injury report: Arizona to have 7 healthy scratches

New, comments

Two teams have two very different health situations

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

When was the last time the Arizona Cardinals were completely healthy? I can't think of it, but we are at that point now. While there are players on the injury report, head coach Bruce Arians declared on Friday everyone was ready to play.

There were three players who were limited on Friday and those three players -- cornerback Justin Bethel (foot), tight end Darren Fells (hip) and receiver J.J. Nelson (shoulder) -- who are questionable for the game, but Arians indicated all could play and the decision of which seven guys would be inactive would be interesting.

Nelson, who was the team's punt returner before he got hurt, won't necessarily jump right in even if he plays.

Everyone else on the injury report was a full participant in practice Friday and is probable for the game.

Detroit, on the other hand, is more banged up. Three players -- running back Joique Bell (ankle), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (calf) and tight end Eric Ebron (knee) -- are out for the game. None of them practiced all week. Two are questionable -- safety James Ihedigbo (quad) and guard Larry Warford (ankle). Warford missed practice on Thursday but was limited on Friday.

Everyone else is probable to play.
