Arizona Cardinals, Week 12: Injury Report, Monday Night Football Sellout

The Arizona Cardinals annouced that the Monday Night Football game versus the San Francisco 49ers is a sellout, the 50th consecutive sold out home game for them. The team also relased their injury report for the game. Headlining the injury report are starters DE Calais Campbell, CB Greg Toler, LB Clark Haggans, WR Steve Breaston, DT Darnell Dockett and S Kerry Rhodes. Questionable for the game are Toler (foot) and Campbell (ankle), who according to Ken Whisenhunt are game-day decisions, along with Breaston (knee), Haggans (groin), DT Dan Williams (toe) and RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (hamstring). Listed as probable are Dockett (shoulder), Rhodes (hand/back), WR Early Doucet (head), CB Michael Adams (ribs) and LB Reggie Walker (hamstring).

Arizona Cardinals Injury Report, Week 12: Greg Toler And Calais Campbell Out Of Thanksgiving Practice

The Arizona Cardinals held a shortened Thanksgiving practice, with the intentions of giving the players three days to do two days of work in preparation for their Monday Night Football matchup against the San francisco 49ers. Calais Campbell (ankle) and Greg Toler (foot) were the only players to not practice at all. There were six other players that were limited, including Darnell Dockett (shoulder), Steve Breaston (knee), and LaRod Stephens-Howling (hamstring).

As mentioned in a previous update, CB Marshay Green was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad, which was necessitated by the injuries to Toler and also CB Michael Adams, who was limited in Thursday's practice. Additionally, the lack of production in punt returns may give Green the opportunity to return punts.

In recent roster moves, RB Alphonso Smith was re-signed to the practice squad, as I expected. He was previously there before last week, when he was promoted to the active roster for the game against Kansas City. He was released earlier in the week when Green was promoted to the 53-man roster. The Cardinals also signed DE Jeremy Navarre to the practice squad. He played in 2009 with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Arizona Cardinals Injury Report, Week 12: Will Davis On IR, Max Komar Re-signed

The Arizona Cardinals made a roster move Tuesday because of the fractured fibula that LB Will Davis suffered during the team's 31-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt had already stated that Davis would miss the remainder of the season, so in an expected move, the team placed Davis on injured reserve, officially ending the season for the second-year player. To replace Davis on roster, WR Max Komar, who was waived last week, was re-signed to the team.

In other moves, waived RB Alphonso Smith, who was promoted to the 53-man roster due to injuries to both RB LaRod Stephens-Howling and RB Jason Wright. Replacing Smith is undrafted rookie CB Marshay Green, who was promoted from the practice squad.

The return of Komar is not a surprise, as the coaching staff has been very pleased with his development this year. The waiving of Smith would seem to indicate that the team is fairly confident that Wright and Stephens-Howling will be ready to play against San Francisco next Monday night. Smith will probably be re-signed to the practice squad later if he clears waivers.

The promotion of Green to the active roster seems to be an indication of concern for the injury to Greg Toler's foot. The move provides depth in the defensive backfield and on special teams, as Green has experience in covering kicks and punts, and also in returning both kicks and punts. If Michael Adams is forced to start again, it would appear that Green will take Adam's place on special teams.
