The Cardinals (3-8-1) enter Week 14 on a five-game losing streak, falling last week in blowout fashion to the Los Angeles Rams, 34-7.

Meanwhile, the Steelers (7-5) enter the game at State Farm Stadium on a high. With starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger knocked out for the rest of the year, Pittsburgh has won six of seven heading into Sunday.

Running back James Conner (shoulder) and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) were both officially ruled out on Friday, leaving Pittsburgh without two of its top offensive weapons. Neither played in Pittsburgh’s last two games, both of which were wins over the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns.

Undrafted rookie quarterback Devlin “Duck” Hodges is expected to start again.

Here is the latest injury report for both teams.
