Arizona Cardinals receiver Greg Dortch is not expected to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a thumb injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Cardinals’ fluctuation of available weapons continues in Week 12. Wide receiver Marquise Brown was activated off injured reserve Saturday ahead of the Chargers matchup.

Receiver Rondale Moore was ruled out early in the week by head coach Kliff Kingsbury after he suffered a groin injury Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

Dortch did not practice all week after sustaining the injury Monday in Mexico City.

Kingsbury said Dortch was getting an MRI on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old had the most productive outing in his NFL career against the 49ers, logging nine catches for the second time and a career-high 103 receiving yards.

With Moore getting hurt on Arizona’s opening drive, Dortch took advantage of the opportunity and played 93% of the available offensive snaps.

Sunday’s game kicks off at 2:05 p.m. from State Farm Stadium. Tune in on Arizona Sports 98.7, or the app.
