Cardinals vs. Packers injury report: Andre Ellington still out, Carson Palmer finger is no worry

A first look at the injury report of the week.

Entering what is a very important week for the Arizona Cardinals, we get our first look at the injury situation. Some things haven't changed. Running back Andre Ellington was again absent from practice, still nursing that toe injury. It was the same with safety Rashad Johnson, although there is optimism both of them can get some work in on Thursday.

Defensive lineman Josh Mauro sat out with a calf injury, but that was expected and he is most likely going to miss this weekend's game against the Packers. Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was ill and missed practice as well.

Appearing on the injury report for the first time this season was quarterback Carson Palmer, listed as limited with a finger injury. However, there is no need to worry. He played through it on Sunday and it will not hold him back. As Darren Urban noted in a tweet, Palmer is taking a few less reps this time of year anyway.

Several other players were limited as well. They include tight end Jermaine Gresham (knee), cornerback Jerraud Powers (calf), defensive tackles Frostee Rucker and Cory Redding (ankle for both), center Lyle Sendlein (knee) and defensive tackle Ed Stinson (shoulder).

Patrick Peterson appeared on the report with his ankle, but he practiced fully.

As of right now, it is believed everyone will be available, except for probably Mauro.

For Green Bay, they were without five players at practice. Tackle David Bakhtiari (ankle), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hamstring), linebacker Jayrone Elliott (quad), defensive tackle Letroy Guion (foot) and cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) did not practice.

Five other were limited: tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle), running back Eddie Lacy (rib), guard T.J. Lang (shoulder), linebacker Clay Matthews (ankle) and guard Josh Sitton (back).
