The Arizona Cardinals will once again be without both running back James Conner and rookie wide receiver Rondale Moore when they take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

It marks the second straight game Conner and Moore will miss due to a heel and ankle injury, respectively.

Entering play Sunday, Conner trailed only Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (17) for the league lead in rushing touchdowns with 14.

Moore is second on the team in receptions with 54 to go along with 435 yards and a touchdown.

As a rusher, Moore has carried the football 18 times for 76 yards. He also serves as a near-daily punt and kick return option in the special teams.

Other Cardinals inactives include cornerback Marco Wilson (shoulder), tight end Demetrius Harris (shoulder) and defensive linemen Jordan Phillips (knee) and Zach Kerr.

Backup quarterback Colt McCoy remains active but has already been listed as questionable with a migraine.

On a positive note, both safety Budda Baker (ribs) and defensive lineman Zach Allen (ankle) are active for Sunday’s tilt. The pair entered the matchup as questionable.

As for the Cowboys, quarterback Will Grier, offensive lineman Matt Farniok, wide receiver Simi Fehoko and cornerbacks Maurice Canady and Israel Mukuamu are officially inactive.

The Cardinals take on the Cowboys at 2:25 p.m. Tune to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station for all the action.
