Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds active, Andy Isabella inactive vs. Eagles
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) will indeed give it a go Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles despite missing practice this week for all but a limited portion of work on Friday.
The Cardinals, however, will be without starting left guard Justin Pugh, who didn’t practice leading into the Week 14 game at State Farm Stadium due to a calf injury.
Pugh, Edmonds and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) were all questionable to play against Philadelphia. Kirkpatrick will be available.
Pugh is joined on the inactives list by quarterback Brett Hundley, receiver Andy Isabella, running back Eno Benjamin, backup center Lamont Gaillard, safety Jalen Thompson (ankle) and linebacker Kylie Fitts (hamstring).
It’s the second week in a row Isabella is a healthy scratch.
The Eagles will be without cornerback Darius Slay (concussion), receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, running back Jason Huntley, defensive back Grayland Arnold (hamstring) and receiver John Hightower.
Philadelphia had already ruled out cornerback Avonte Maddox and tackle Jack Driscoll due to knee injuries.
On Saturday, the Cardinals shuffled their roster by placing kicker Zane Gonzalez and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips on the injured reserve list, effectively putting that duo on the sidelines through the remaining three games of the regular season.
Arizona also signed practice squad running back D.J. Foster to the active roster, giving them an experienced backup behind starter Kenyan Drake if Edmonds was not ready to play.
Kicker Mike Nugent and linebacker Terrance Smith were also elevated from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday, while tight end Darrell Daniels was pulled off the designated to return list.
