This is the official injury report for the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals in advance of Sunday’s game.

Today’s official injury report for the Chicago Bears isn’t as clean as yesterdays, but it’s still quite small in comparison to the last few years. The Bears have officially ruled backup safety DeAndre Houston-Carson (arm) and backup corner Marcus Cooper Sr. (hamstring) as out.

And that’s it.

Kyle Long missed practice today, but that was simply a veteran rest day for the 29-year old.

The Arizona Cardinals has also listed two players out for Sunday. Starting right tackle Andre Smith won’t suit up with an elbow injury, and backup defensive tackle Olsen Pierre will (toe) also miss the game. Smith’s absence is bad news for Cardinal QB Sam Bradford, who will now have swing tackle John Wetzel starting against Bears’ pass rusher Khalil Mack.

The last time the Bears faced Bradford, they knocked him out of he game. For those wondering, Arizona lists rookie Josh Rosen as QB2, and Mike Glennon as QB3.

The Cardinals also have several players listed as questionable.

WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring)
S Rudy Ford (ankle)
LB Dennis Gardeck (ankle)
DE Markus Golden (knee)
TE Jermaine Gresham (Achilles)
