The Arizona Cardinals have ruled defensive end J.J Watt out of Thursday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers with a shoulder injury, the team announced Wednesday.
Watt was not a participant during the Cardinals short week of practice in preparation for the Packers.
Additionally with Watt, starting wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) did not practice for the third straight day and was joined by center Max Garcia (Achilles) and defensive tackle Rashard Lawrence (calf) as non-participants. All three players have been listed as questionable for Thursday’s game, along with tight end Darrell Daniels (hamstring).
Garcia, who for at least one more week will be filling in with starter Rodney Hudson on the injured reserve, joined Hopkins and Watt as new to the injury report after a Sunday win against the Houston Texans.
After being limited in Tuesday’s practice, linebackers Isaiah Simmons, Jordan Hicks, Devon Kennard and Tanner Vallejo were full participants on Wednesday.
Additionally, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was listed with a right finger injury, but he was a full participant in practice for a third straight day.
Green Bay has a relatively clean injury report, though it did lose its top two receivers in Davante Adams and Allen Lazard to the COVID-19 reserve list.
Arizona hosts Green Bay at State Farm Stadium on Thursday Night Football and is coming off a 31-5 victory against the Houston Texans.
Below is the injury report for both teams:
