The Arizona Cardinals saw an improvement with their injury situation, but they also saw a change for the worse in Thursday's injury report. There was a new addition to the injury repory, as starting left guard Mike Iupati, who was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and didn't even show up on the report, was listed as a non-participant on Thursday with a back injury.

Head coach Bruce Arians does not address the media on Thursdays, so we won't know more until he speaks today.

After Iupati, outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley did not practice, listed with a chest injury, though Arians said on Wednesday he also has a bruised thigh.

receiver John Brown and safety Tyrann Mathieu, both of whom sat out practice on Wednesday, were upgraded to limited on Thursday. Safeties Rashad Johnson, limited on Wednesday with a hip injury, and Tony Jefferson (neck) were upgraded to full.

Justiin Bethel (foot) and Darren Fells (hip) were also limited, while tackle Jared Veldheer was a full participant.

For Pittsburgh, the only one not to practice was safety Will Allen (ankle). Offensive lineman Doug Legursky (back) went from out on Wednesday to a full participant on Thursday. Everyone else was limited -- CB Cortez Allen (knee), LB Jarvis Jones (hip), QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and LB Ryan Shazier (shoulder).
