As the Arizona Cardinals prepare for a Monday Night Football divisional matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) and offensive lineman Justin Pugh (calf) will be game-time decisions, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Saturday.

However, defensive lineman Zach Kerr (ribs) has been ruled out after not practicing all week.

Long snapper Aaron Brewer (arm) will be a game-time decision after he and Edmonds were designated to return from the injured reserve earlier in the week. Should the two return, they must be activated from injured reserve before Monday.

Edmonds has not played since a Nov. 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers and remains second on the team with 430 rushing yards.

Pugh has been a limited participant in practice this week, as the guard is nursing a calf injury.

The Cardinals were without two players during Saturday’s practice as the team prepares for the Week 14 showdown Rams.

In addition to Kerr, safety Budda Baker did not practice on Saturday for a non-injury-related/personal reason.

Tight end Zach Ertz (shoulder), cornerback Byron Murphy Jr. (foot) and running back Jonathan Ward (illness) were all full participants after being limited on Thursday and Friday.

As for the Rams, running back Darrell Henderson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday and will miss Monday night’s contest.

LA wideout Cooper Kupp (toe) — who leads the NFL in receiving yards this season — offensive lineman David Edwards (foot) and cornerback Robert Rochell (chest) were full participants on Saturday.

Rams OL Brian Allen (knee) has been ruled as doubtful after not practicing all week, while LB Terrell Lewis (back) and CB Donte Deayon (illness) are both questionable.
