The Arizona Cardinals’ injury report for a Week 3 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams includes a notable upgrade on Thursday’s edition.

Running back James Conner was a limited participant after sitting out on Wednesday. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Conner’s ankle injury from Sunday is not expected to be a long-term injury.

Wide receiver Andy Isabella was a full go in practice for the second straight day after missing Sunday’s win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The significance of his absence was multiplied since fellow wideout Rondale Moore has yet to play this season, and Moore once again did not practice on Thursday.

The recently acquired Trayvon Mullen also had his second consecutive full participation day. He has missed both of the Cardinals’ games due to a toe injury.

For the Rams, the secondary is an issue.

Troy Hill, one of the Rams’ top three cornerbacks alongside Jalen Ramsey and David Long Jr., was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Long, meanwhile, was downgraded on Thursday’s report from limited the day prior to DNP. The next man up on the depth chart is Cobie Durant, who hasn’t practiced either day.

In addition, safety Jordan Fuller was a new name on Thursday’s report with a hamstring issue that had him limited. Fuller played 31% of the Rams’ defensive snaps in Week 1 and 59% the following week.

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