As a result, both teams have released their injury reports with notable updates.

Arizona Cardinals

Did Not Participate: linebacker Tyreke Smith (non-injury related)

Limited Practice Participant: linebacker Krys Barnes (ribs), punter Blake Gillikin (back), defensive back Bobby Price (quadricep), wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel), tight end Geoff Swaim (back) and wide receiver Michel Wilson (neck)

Full Practice Participant: quarterback Kyler Murray (right thumb), running back Emari Demercado, cornerback Antonio Hamilton (groin), defensive tackle Kevin Strong (knee), cornerback Starling Thomas V (ankle), safety Jalen Thompson (toe), and offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson (neck)

After finding himself on the report for the past two days, Murray will be good to go against the 49ers.

Smith is ruled out not due to an injury, but he just arrived in Arizona following him signing to their practice squad from the Seattle Seahawks today.

The biggest news today was that Demercado and Hamilton were both fully participating today after being inactive for the past three games.

Also, they were not on the game status list, so their increased reps indicated they will be back as State Farm Stadium Sunday.

Additionally, Brown was a light participant today after not being involved at all on Wednesday. He has played every game for the Cardinals this season, though it is worth noting he could not continue against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 3 and his heel injury has been impacting his performance for the last few weeks.

San Francisco 49ers

Did Not Participate: defensive end Arik Armstead (foot, knee), linebacker Oren Burks (knee), tight end Ross Dwelley (ankle), nose tackle Javon Hargrave (hamstring), and running back Elijah Mitchell (knee)

Limited Practice Participant: guard Spencer Burford (knee), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (hip, ankle), cornerback Charvarius Ward (groin), and guard Aaron Banks (hip)

Full Practice Participant: cornerback Darrell Luter Jr. (hamstring), offensive tackle Trent Williams (non-injury related)

Not Listed: cornerback Ambry Thomas (non-injury related)

Ward, Banks and Greenlaw’s activity upgraded today to be light participants after not suiting up earlier this week.

Furthermore, Williams would return today after he was unavailable on Wednesday.

For the rest of the 49ers, the list remains unchanged from yesterday.


The game between the Cardinals and 49ers will be this Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona at 2:05 p.m.
