The Arizona Cardinals ruled out tight end Darrell Daniels and nose tackle Rashard Lawrence for their Week 7 game against the Houston Texans.

Daniels’ injury makes way for newcomer Zach Ertz to make his Cardinals debut, with Demetrius Harris and perhaps a practice squad call-up backing him up.

On the team’s Friday injury report, inside linebacker Jordan Hicks (toe/ankle), backup inside linebacker Tanner Vallejo (hand) and outside linebacker Devon Kennard (shoulder) are questionable.

After missing practice Wednesday, left guard Justin Pugh (back) and right tackle Kelvin Beachum (ribs) were back in a limited fashion on Thursday and full go Friday.

Also upgraded to full participation Friday are running back Chase Edmonds (shoulder) and rookie linebacker Zaven Collins (shoulder).

For the Texans, defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson (back) is out. Center Justin Britt (knee), receiver Nico Collins (foot) and receiver Chris Conley (neck) are questionable. All three were limited in Friday’s practice.
