Arizona Cardinals-Oakland Raiders Friday Injury Report
By Scott Allen
After numerous players showing up on this weeks injury report, the Arizona Cardinals have only ruled two for Sunday against the Oakland Raiders
The Arizona Cardinals appeared they could have a lengthy list of players that would be in danger of missing this weekend’s game but in the end head coach Bruce Arians said that only defensive tackle Calais Campbell and tight end Troy Niklas should miss the game against the Oakland Raiders. That is great news considering who was on the list this week. The Cards went relatively unscathed considering some of the guys lost to season-enders in the NFL last Sunday.

Campbell was only able to do some light jogging this week but did not participate in any practices. The Cards are hopeful that Campbell can get back to playing action next Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Quarterback Carson Palmer was limited most of the week but we already knew he did not suffer any set backs on his return last week against the Washington Redskins. Running back Andre Ellington also should play as should tight end John Carlson, though Carlson is listed as questionable.
Also listed questionable for the Cards is linebacker Glenn Carson, defensive tackle Frostee Rucker and linebacker Alameda Ta’amu. Rucker left last weeks game for a short period before returning to the game.
As for the Raiders, they will be without the services of receiver Vincent Brown and cornerback Keith McGill. Defensive end Justin Tuck, guard Khalif Barnes, and running back Marcel Reece are all listed as questionable.
