While the injury report yesterday was ugly, today’s is a little bit better, except for a couple of big names.

First, the name at the top, no not John Brown, he may or may not be back this year, but instead the return of Deone Bucannon to the injury report.
The injury could have been much worse for Bucannon, but it seems it may just be a re-aggravation of the ankle he had surgery on during the offseason.
The other big name is Adrian Peterson, although Harold Goodwin seems a bit more optimistic:

Corey Peters is the other big name, but the Cardinals finally figured out a way to stop the run without Peters, although the Jags offensive line was beat up and the Rams... Is not.
Josh Mauro was upgraded to limited and Robert Nkemdiche was upgraded to full participant, so the defensive line, sans Peters, is healthier than it was earlier in the week.
Obviously, Ricky Seals-Jones and Larry Fitzgerald were back at practice after being listed as DNP, not injury related, Wednesday.
Here’s to hoping everyone is healthy come Sunday.
