Derek Anderson did not practice again on Thursday, as he still had not passed his concussion tests. John Skelton and Richard Bartel again shared reps with the first team, but all signs seem to be pointing to the rookie starting on Sunday for Arizona against the Denver Broncos. The injury report for the Cardinals was almost unchanged. Michael Adams (shoulder) practiced fully after previously being limited. Darnell Dockett (shoulder) and Greg Toler (foot) again practiced fully. The players limited in practice were Steve Breaston (knee), Calais Campbell (ankle), Jay Feely (groin), Clark Haggans (groin) and Jerry Porter (knee).
For Denver, safety Brian Dawkins did not practice because of his knee injury. Fullback Spenser Larsen (hamstring) and receiver Damryius Thomas (ankle) also did not practice. Cornerback Andre Goodman (quadricep), safety Darcel McBath (quad/ankle) and kicker Matt Prater (groin) were all limited in Thursday's practice.
For the 52nd straight game, the Cardinals sold out their game. This all but guarantees another season of selling University of Phoenix Stadium, as the only remaining home game is the Christmas game against the Dallas Cowboys. Ever since the days of Sun Devil Stadium, fans sell out the stadium to watch Dallas. The game will be televised locally on CBS at 2:15PM. This of course means we will be watching two 3-9 teams instead of the the contest between the 9-3 Chicago Bears and 10-2 New England Patriots.
