The availability of Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner and rookie receiver Rondale Moore will be decided just before kickoff against the visiting Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.

Conner has yet to practice this week as he deals with a heel injury, while Moore has been sidelined by an ankle injury.

Running backs Chase Edmonds and Eno Benjamin likely would be in for an uptick in snaps should Conner be unable to face the Colts (8-6) on Christmas night in Glendale, Ariz.

Conner’s 14 rushing touchdowns rank only behind Colts star Jonathan Taylor (17) for tops in the NFL. The 26-year-old Conner has a team-leading 700 yards rushing to go along with 31 receptions for 334 yards and two touchdowns for the Cardinals (10-4).

Moore, 21, has 54 catches for 435 yards and one touchdown in 14 games this season. He was selected by Arizona in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
