INGLEWOOD — The Arizona Cardinals are getting a handful of reinforcements back for the team’s Wild Card matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Starting running back James Conner, cornerback Marco Wilson, wide receiver Rondale Moore and offensive lineman Justin Pugh are among those officially active for Monday’s tilt.

In 15 games played this season, Conner has tallied 752 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground, while adding 37 catches for 375 yards and three scores through the air.

Moore, who has been dealing with ankle injury, hasn’t played since Arizona’s Week 15 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Moore has also been utilized in the running game, tallying 76 yards and two scores on 18 carries.

Wilson hasn’t played since Arizona’s Christmas Day loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The rookie was knocked out of the game after suffering a shoulder injury.

Over 14 games played, the cornerback recorded 48 tackles, four passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

Cardinals inactives include running back Jonathan Ward, linebacker Victor Dimukeje, offensive lineman Joshua Miles, wide receiver Andy Isabella, quarterback Trace McSorley and defensive linemen Jordan Phillips and Zach Kerr.

Phillips (knee) was a full participant on Saturday after practicing in a limited fashion throughout the week. Ward (knee) was limited on the final day of practice after missing the first two days.
