The Arizona Cardinals’ injury report for their Week 3 game with the Los Angeles Rams includes a notable upgrade in Thursday’s release.

Running back James Conner was a limited participant after sitting outside on Wednesday. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Conner’s ankle injury as of Sunday is not expected to be a long-term injury.

Wide receiver Andy Isabella was a complete test-tube for the second day in a row after missing Sunday’s win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The significance of his absence is doubled because teammate Rondale Moore has yet to play this season, and Moore did not train again on Thursday.

Recently acquired Trayvon Mullen earned his second full running day. He missed both of the Cardinal’s matches due to a toe injury.

For rams, secondary is an issue.

Troy Hill, one of the Rams’ top three players along with Galen Ramsey and David Long Jr., was placed in injured reserve on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Long’s rating was downgraded in Thursday’s report from limited the day before to DNP. The next guy on the depth chart is Cobie Durant, who hasn’t exercised any day.

Additionally, Jordan Fuller’s safety was a new name in Thursday’s report with a hamstring problem that was limited. Fuller played 31% of defensive rams in the first week and 59% in the following week.

Elsewhere, starting center Brian Allen will be out for two to four weeks. Wideout Van Jefferson is not expected to practice this week, according to Los Angeles coach Sean McVay.
