The Arizona Cardinals appear to still be without Andre Ellington. While head coach Bruce Arians did not rule him out for Sunday, he did not practice on Thursday. His injury is expected to keep him out one to three weeks. Here is the latest on the injury report for both teams:

Cardinals:

RB Andre Ellington (knee): DNP
S Deone Bucannon (groin): limited
S Tony Jefferson (hamstring): limited
G Mike Iupati (knee): limited
WR Michael Floyd (hand): full
TE Jermaine Gresham (hamstring): full
TE Troy Niklas (hamstring): full

Arizona saw a couple of additions. Safeties Deone Bucannon and Tony Jefferson were limited. In the open part of practice to reporters, Jefferson was walking with trainers. The key is how much they practice on Friday. If either has to miss time, it will affect defensive rotations, as the Cardinals play with four safeties frequently.

Bears:

LB Jonathan Bostic (ankle): DNP
LB Pernell McPhee (wrist): DNP
CB Tracy Porter (hamstring): DNP
DL Ego Ferguson (knee): limited
LB Sam Acho (illness): full
CB Sherrick McManus (thigh): full

Both Bostic and McPhee were downgraded. They had practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday. McPhee is the only starter or the group, but he is a solid edge player. Missing him would be a blow to the Bears defense.
