The Arizona Cardinals held practice Christmas afternoon and their final injury report looks good. The only player who should miss the game on Sunday is defensive lineman Josh Mauro, whose calf injury was figured from the start of the week to keep him out of Sunday's game. He is listed as out.

Everyone else is either questionable or probable.

The biggest question marks entering Friday's practice were running back Andre Ellington and safety Rashad Johnson. Ellington was limited in practice for the second day in a row, while Johnson was able to practice on a limited basis on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday. According to Mike Jurecki, head coach Bruce Arians, it is "very likley" Ellington plays after practicing at full speed two days in a row.

His role will still likely be complementary to David Johnson. That just means Kerwynn Williams isn't likely to get many offenssive touches.

Arians expects Johnson to play.

Defensive tackles Cory Redding and Frostee Rucker are also questionable, but practiced all week, albeit on a limited basis.

Everyone else is listed as probable.

Green Bay did not hold practice on Christmas, but still issued their game status and an injury report based on what players would have been had they practiced. They instead will practice once more, but in Arizona, on Saturday. It is possible things change.

Only one player is listed as out -- linebacker Jayrone Elliott. Starting cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) and starting left tackle David Bakhtiari (ankle) were listed as DNPs all week and are questionable for Sunday. Since Shields has yet to practice through the concussion protocol, it seems unlikely he would go and Bakhtiari wouldn't figure to suit up unless he is able to get some work in on Saturday.

Tight end Justin Perillo was listed as a DNP on Friday with a hamstring. That would be a downgrade from Thursday. He is also questionable. Everyone else listed is probable for the game,.
