Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was upgraded from a nonparticipant to full on the team’s Thursday injury report.

Hopkins missed practice all of last week and on Wednesday with a ribs injury. He pushed through for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury mentioned this week that the All-Pro receiver was not feeling his best.

Hopkins was the only Cardinal out with injury on Wednesday who returned to the practice field on Thursday.

Offensive linemen Justin Pugh, Justin Murray and Kelvin Beachum were all nonparticipants for the second straight day. Pugh and Murray have back injuries and Beachum is still dealing with the ribs issue he suffered in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.

The Cardinals played backup guards Max Garcia and Sean Harlow while moving Josh Jones from right guard to right tackle last week to fill in.

Running back Eno Benjamin was a new addition to the list, as he was limited on Thursday with a hamstring injury. He was a healthy scratch from all three Cardinals games thus far.

Center Rodney Hudson, edge rusher Chandler Jones, nose tackle Corey Peters and wide receiver A.J. Green all returned in full after taking rest days. Green was the only one of that group who participated in a limited fashion on Wednesday.

For Arizona’s Sunday opponent, the Los Angeles Rams, two players did not participate in practice. Linebacker Terrell Lewis had a rest day and rookie wide receiver TuTu Atwell was out with illness.

Cornerback Robert Rochell and running back Darrell Henderson were limited with illness and a ribs injury, respectively.

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald, linebacker Leonard Floyd and left tackle Andrew Whitworth were back as full participants after taking rest days on Wednesday.

Sunday’s game in Los Angeles will start at 1:05 PST and air on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
