Cardinals injury report: 16 players appear on first Week 5 report

The Arizona Cardinals are 4-0 and have three of the next four games at home, starting with the San Francisco 49ers this weekend. They released their first injury report of the week and it is a whopping 16 players long.

Ten players didn’t practice. However, four players — center Rodney Hudson and receiver DeAndre Hopkins as well as defensive tackle Corey Peters, Chandler Jones, and linebacker Chandler Jones — were allowed to take the day off for a rest day. James Conner, running back, missed practice due to personal reasons.

But, five of them sat out because they were injured. Cornerback Byron Murphy sustained a rib injury during Sunday’s victory over the Rams. He says he will be fine but is still considered day-today. He didn’t practice Wednesday. Neither did running back Chase Edmonds, who suffered a shoulder injury at the end of his 54-yard run. Antonio Hamilton, cornerback, was also forced to sit out due to an ankle injury that he sustained Sunday. Justin Pugh, the guard, has a hip injury. Maxx Williams, the tight end has a shoulder injury. Both were unable to participate in practice.

Receiver A.J. Green was granted a partial day off. It was listed as being limited for rest.

Tackle Kelvin Bayum (ribs), was limited in practice for the first time after two weeks. As was Justin Murray, the offensive lineman (back), Eno Benjamin was not able to run back (hamstring).

Linebacker Dennis Gardeck, (hand), and cornerback Marco Wilson, (ribs), were both full participants during practice.
