The Arizona Cardinals have officially ruled out offensive lineman Justin Pugh, safety James Wiggins and running backs Chase Edmonds and Jonathan Ward for Sunday’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

The four hadn’t practiced all week.

Pugh will miss his first game of the season in Week 10 due to a calf issue. Backup lineman Sean Harlow is in line to take Pugh’s place at left guard.

On the plus side, quarterback Kyler Murray made his return to the practice field on Friday after being listed as a DNP the first two days of the week. He, along with wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore, offensive lineman Max Garcia and defensive lineman Jordan Phillips, are questionable for Sunday’s matchup.

Starting right tackle Kelvin Beachum (shin) and starting inside linebacker Jordan Hicks (toe) were full participants after being listed as limited the first two days of practice.

For the Panthers, cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Stantley Thomas-Oliver have been ruled out for Sunday, while defensive end Brian Burns and linebacker Frankie Luvu are questionable.
