Cardinals offensive linemen Justin Murray and Justin Pugh will be game-time decisions when Arizona takes on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

“We’ll see how they progress the next couple of days and get them out there Sunday pregame and see where it goes,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury said after practice Friday.

Both linemen went down with back issues in Week 3 and missed the first two days of practice.

Murray and Pugh, along with fellow offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum (ribs), are officially questionable for the contest in Los Angeles. Beachum missed practice Friday.

The Cardinals played backup guards Max Garcia and Sean Harlow while moving Josh Jones from right guard to right tackle last week to fill in for the injured trio.

In other injury news, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was a full-go for a second straight day.

Running back Eno Benjamin, who was a late addition to the injury report Thursday with a hamstring issue, is out, however. He was a healthy scratch from all three Cardinals games thus far.

For the Los Angeles Rams, wide receiver Desean Jackson was given a rest day Friday. He was the only Ram to miss the final day of practice, with cornerback Robert Rochell (illness), running back Darrell Henderson (ribs) and wide receiver TuTu Atwell (illness) back from their respective issues.

The full injury report is below.
