Arizona Cardinals Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Baker (thigh) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Baker was a full participant at Friday's practice to help avoid the questionable designation. The rookie second-round pick is in-line to make his fifth consecutive start for the Cardinals on Sunday.
News: Bethea (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Bethea started out the week not practicing but was a full participant Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Budda Baker (thigh) avoided being listed as questionable as well, so Bethea should be in for his usual workload against the Redskins this week.
News: Peters (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Peters was a limited participant in practice this week and has missed the last fourth games for the Cardinals. There is no clear indication on his likelihood to play Sunday, with Rodney Gunter likely to see an increased workload if Peters cannot playy
News: Mauro (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Mauro was a limited participant Thursday and Friday, and appears likely to try and play through the injury again this week. The 26-year-old has been on a limited snap count throughout the season, and that trend is liable to continue Sunday.
News: Gresham (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Gresham was a new addition to the injury report this week and was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. The veteran tight end seems to be trending in the wrong direction at this point, which would leave Troy Niklas as the Cardinals' No. 2 tight end if Gresham is unable to suit up Sunday.
News: Watford (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Watford suffered the high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Titans, and the Cardinals will be down yet another offensive lineman as a result. Accord to coach Bruce Arians, a multi-game absence is expected for Watford.
News: Martin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Martin is still feeling the effects of a hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Titans. His absence, however, won't have an impact on the defense, as Martin was primarily playing special teams.
News: Brown (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Washington, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Brown has managed a few limited practice sessions the past two weeks, but his turf toe still hasn't improved to a point that would allow him to play in a game. It's fair to wonder if the impending free agent will make another appearance this season.
News: The Cardinals activated Brewer (wrist) from injured reserve Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Brewer, who fractured his wrist in early October, had been practicing with the Cardinals for about a week after the team designated him as one of two players eligible to return from IR this season. He should immediately settle back in as the team's long snapper during Sunday's game against the Redskins.
News: Williams is expected to retain starting duties at running back for the Cardinals' final three games with Adrian Peterson (neck) headed to injured reserve, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Impact: Williams struggled early in the season after replacing the injured David Johnson (wrist) as the Cardinals' lead back, but he's been far more productive in his second trial in that role since Peterson went down in Week 12. Over the past two contests, Williams has scampered for 170 yards on 36 carries (4.7 average), numbers that likely won't allow backups D.J. Foster and Elijhaa Penny to take too much of his workload. Williams draws a favorable matchup in Week 15 against a Redskins defense that has allowed 4.3 yards per carry, the sixth-worst mark in the NFL.
