James Conner is back at practice for the Arizona Cardinals and is expected to return to the lineup on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Conner has been on injured reserve since Week 5 with a knee injury.
“James looked good today,” Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “He’s been very diligent in his rehab, and we’re excited to have him back.”
Conner’s return is a boost for the Cardinals offense, which has struggled without him. Conner is a versatile running back who can run between the tackles and catch passes out of the backfield.
Kyler Murray Takes All First-Team Reps

“Kyler looked sharp today,” Kingsbury said. “He’s made a lot of progress in his rehab, and we’re confident that he’s ready to go.”
Murray’s return is a major boost for the Cardinals offense. Murray is a dynamic playmaker who can make plays with his legs and his arm.
