GLENDALE – Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner will play in the regular-season finale against the Seattle Seahawks. The question is how much.
He missed the previous two games because of a heel injury and was limited in practice all three days this week.
With Chase Edmonds out because of injured ribs and a toe issue, Conner will be helped in the backfield by Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward.
The Cardinals will play in the first round of the playoffs next week, so there could be some caution exercised with how many snaps Conner plays.
Also inactive for the Cardinals are wide receiver/kick returner Rondale Moore (ankle), cornerback Marco Wilson (shoulder), defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (knee), tight end Demetrius Harris (shoulder), tackle Josh Miles and quarterback Trace McSorley.
McSorley was active but did no play last Sunday against Dallas because Colt McCoy was experiencing migraines early Sunday morning. But he was deemed healthy enough to play if needed.
Defensive end Zach Allen (ankle) and linebacker Dennis Gardeck (thumb) are active, while cornerback Breon Borders is active for the first time since being signed off Tennessee’s practice squad on Dec. 15. He then spent a week on the reserve/COVID-19 list from Dec. 28-Jan. 4.
For the Seahawks, inactive are linebacker Bobby Wagner (knee), guard Gabe Jackson (knee/illness), tight end Will Dissly (heel), cornerback John Reid (concussion) and quarterback Jacob Eason.
Jackson’s backup, Kyle Fuller, was placed on reserve/COVID-19 Saturday. The next guard on the depth chart is Phil Haynes. Jake Curhan is expected to start at right tackle after Brandon Shell, who was on the injury report with a shoulder issue and illness then was placed on reserve/injured Saturday.
