James Conner to play vs. Giants; Budda Baker questionable

The Arizona Cardinals have wrapped up their week of practice and have released their final injury report. Running back James Conner is good to go after being limited early in the week but they had a new injury pop up.

They will be without two defensive starters on Sunday when they take on the New York Giants at home.

The details for their final injury report are below.

Ruled out

DL L.J. Collier (biceps), LB Josh Woods

Both players were unable to practice all week, which means some changes to the defensive rotations.

Collier, a starter on the defensive line, will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by Carlos Watkins and rookie Dante Stills probably will be active and get some playing time.

Woods will likely be replaced by Krys Barnes in the lineup.


S Budda Baker (hamstring), OL Kelvin Beachum (hand), DL Leki Fotu (shoulder)

Beachum and Fotu were limited all week. Beachum was inactive for the season opener. His being healthy means they won’t have to elevate an offensive lineman from the practice squad for Sunday.

Baker’s injury is new. He was limited on Friday. However, if there is one thing we know about Baker, he will find a way to play if at all possible.

No game designation

RB James Conner (calf)

Conner was limited for two days. He was a full participant on Friday and will be good to go on Sunday.
