The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams returned to practice to start the week of preparation. The first injury report is out. For the Cardinals, it was more of the same guys who are banged up and they probably won't be able to play on Sunday.
Running back Andre Ellington (turf toe), cornerback Jerraud Powers (calf) and defensive linemen Cory Redding (ankle) and Frostee Rucker (ankle) were non-participants in practice. Head coach Bruce Arians said (via AZCardinals.com) of those players, only Redding might be able to play on Sunday, although his status is still undetermined. That means David Johnson starts at running back, Justin Bethel starts at cornerback and probably Ed Stinson starts at defensive tackle, although it might also be Josh Mauro.
It is hoped Ellington can be available next week for their Thursday night game at home if he can get treatment from a specialist.
The top three receivers on the team were limited. Larry Fitzgerald is still dealing with an ankle injury, though he will probably be a full go on Thursday. Michael Floyd and John Brown were both limited with their hamstring injuries.
Safety Tony Jefferson was limited with a hip injury, while Patrick Peterson is still listed on the injury report, but practiced fully.
For St. Louis, defensive end Robert Quinn (back), kicker Greg Zuerlein (hip), cornerback Trumaine Johnson (thigh) and tackle Andrew Donnal (knee) sat out of practice. Quarterback Case Keenum (concussion) was limited on Wednesday, so it appears he could be on track to starting on Sunday. Tackle Rob Havenstein (calf) practiced fully.
