New, comment

A second look at the injury report for both teams.

The Arizona Cardinals had every single player participate in practice on Thursday. It was the first time in quite some time. J.J. Nelson, who had missed time with a shoulder injury, finally participated in practice for the first time since the team played the Bears. More importantly, running back Andre Ellington was a full participant in practice for the first time since Week 1.

Five players were limited on Thursday. Nelson was, as was tight end Darren Fells (hip). He did not practice on Wednesday. Cornerback Justin Bethel (foot) and safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) were also limited, as was defensive end Frostee Rucker (thigh). It has not sounded like any would be unavailable for the game, except maybe Nelson.

Everyone else who appeared on the report was a full participant. That includes Ellington, safety Rashad Johnson (hip), linebacker Alani Fua (hamstring) and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (thigh).

For Detroit, the laundry list of players injured was still very long. They went from four players to five not practicing as guard Larry Warford was downgraded from limited to out on Thursday. Running back Joique Bell (ankle), tight end Eric Ebron (knee), linebacker Travis Lewis (ankle), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (calf) did not participate in practice along with Warford.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (shoulder), safety James Ihedigbo (quad), punter Sam Martin (knee) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) were all limited. They all were also limited on Wednesday.

One player was upgraded to full -- cornerback Rasean Mathis (calf). Everyone else listed were full participants, including linebacker Deandre Levy (hip), who appears will play for the first time since the preseason, receiver Lance Moore (ankle) and tackle Corey Robinson (ankle).
