The Cardinals are slowly putting the band back together, with three key players returning to practice for the first time in a while.
While Ryan Lindley has been named the Cardinals starter for Week 12, quarterback Kevin Kolb practiced for the first time since a rib injury he suffered in Week 6. In a game against Buffalo, Kolb had two of his ribs detached from his sternum and it has been slow-going getting him back.
Running back Beanie Wells has been activated from injured reserve and practiced with the team in a limited capacity. Wells has been out since he injured his toe against Philadelphia in Week 3.
Also returning to practice is defensive end Calais Campbell, who has been out since Week 9 with a calf injury. Though limited in practice, it was his first action since the injury.
Running back LaRod Stephens-Howling was a limited participant in practice, having suffered a rib injury.
Safety Kerry Rhodes (back) and cornerback William Gay (groin) were both limited in practice this week.
