FRIDAY REPORT

Running back James Conner will be a game-day decision, coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Friday as the Cardinals prepare to play the Rams at State Farm Stadium on Sunday. Conner has been dealing with an ankle injury.

Wide receiver Rondale Moore (hamstring) and linebacker Ezekiel Turner (ankle) are out for the game.

"I am hoping that within the next two weeks (Moore) will play," Kingsbury said. "If not next week (in Carolina), then I guarantee the game after (home against the Eagles.)"

Kingsbury was asked if there had been consideration given to putting Moore on IR from the outset if he was going to miss four games.

"We thought, depending how it went, he had a chance to get back," KIngsbury said. "He's a guy who is going to have a very significant role in this offense and if we could beat that by a game, we wanted to take that chance."

The rest of the roster should be ready to play, Kingsbury said. That includes cornerback Trayvon Mullen (toe), who is expected to be active for the first time this season. Kingsbury said Mullen's snaps will be determined based on how he has absorbed the defensive playbook, but "physically he should be ready to go."

THURSDAY REPORT

Since the Cardinals acquired Trayvon Millen in August, the cornerback has dealt with a toe injury, but he has returned to practicing fully this week.

Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said it's still it's uncertain if he will play this week against the Rams. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said earlier this week Mullen was still learning the playbook.

"We'll see what happens on Sunday," Joseph said.

Running back James Conner (ankle) practiced on a limited Thursday and wide receiver Rondale Moore (hamstring) worked on the side. Tight end Trey McBride didn't practice because of personal reasons.

WEDNESDAY REPORT

The Cardinals prepare for the Rams this week with injuries to monitor.

Kliff Kingsbury said Rondale Moore (hamstring) remains day-to-day after the receiver did not practice on Wednesday. Running back James Conner (ankle) is day-to-day as well.

"We have to see how Moore progresses," the head coach said. "He's very cerebral and knows the system, so if he can go by Friday or Saturday, we'll feel good about it. Conner is the same deal. He's doing OK."

Several players did not practice on Wednesday, including wide receiver Hollywood Brown, tight end Zach Ertz, left guard Justin Pugh, right tackle Kelvin Beachum, and linebacker Ezekiel Turner. Kingsbury said Brown and many of the others were given a rest day.

"On offense, I think we played 89 snaps," Kingsbury said. "It was a long game and we wanted to rest them. They'll do the walkthroughs; get mental reps and they'll be out there (Thursday)."
