Ruled out

CB Robert Alford (pectoral), WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee)

Hopkins is out for around six weeks with his torn MCL and is getting surgery. He will likely be placed on injured reserve on Saturday. He obviously did not practice all week.

Alford will not play and did not practice all week. It will be his first missed game this season, which means Antonio Hamilton will get playing time.

Questionable

RB James Conner (ankle), TE Zach Ertz (hamstring), DL Leki Fotu (shoulder), DL Zach Kerr (ribs), DL Corey Peters (knee), DL Jordan Phillips (thumb), OL Justin Pugh (calf, illness)

Conner got limited work Friday for the first time all week. Kliff Kingsbury “feel(s) good” about his return to the lineup.

Ertz was a new addition to the injury report Friday and was limited. His injury is something to watch. Fotu was limited Thursday and Friday after being listed as a DNP on Wednesday when the Cardinals held a walkthrough instead of a full practice.

Kerr and Peters got limited work for the first time all week. Kerr missed the last game with the injury.

Phillips was limited all week and Pugh started limited, did not practice Thursday and was limited on Friday. Kingsbury was hopeful for Pugh’s return.

There were no players listed without a game designation.
