The injury situation for the Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams didn't change much. For Arizona, the same players who sat out Wednesday were the same guys to sit out Thursday. They were without running back Andre Ellington (toe), defensive tackles Cory Redding (ankle) and Frostee Rucker (ankle) and cornerback Jerraud Powers (calf). Reporters who were at practice said only Redding was present during the open part of practice. Redding worked on the side with a trainer.
The same players who were limited on Wednesday were limited on Thursday, except for one player. That was defensive tackle Ed Stinson, who was upgraded from limited to full, which should be a big help. He is on track to play this weekend after sitting out last Sunday. Arizona only dressed five healthy defensive linemen and they struggled to match up physically against the 49ers. Stinson will help and perhaps will even get the start in place of Rucker.
Over in St. Louis, the injury report looked exactly the same. Tackle Andrew Donnal (knee), cornerback Trumaine Johnson (thigh), defensive end Robert Quinn (back) and kicker Greg Zuerlein (hip) sat out. QB Case Keenum was limited, but still was not cleared through the concussion protocol for full work.
