It was the roster moves that happened earlier Monday -- including the fact the Cardinals were not activating running back Chase Edmonds from Injured Reserve -- that will have the greatest impact on the game.
But the Cardinals are getting back starting left guard Justin Pugh, who had been out with a calf injury, as the roster as a whole continues to get healthy. Running back Jonathan Ward, who had missed three games with a concussion and Covid, also is active.
Defensive lineman Zach Kerr is the only injured inactive, and his spot is filled by the return of Rashard Lawrence from IR.
The full (and short) inactive list against the Rams:
- QB Trace McSorley
- LS Beau Brinkley
- OL Joshua Miles
- DL Zach Kerr (ribs)
