The Arizona Cardinals are preparing for a tough season to come to an end in Week 18. The team has dealt with injuries, poor play and poor coaching all season, all adding up to a 4-12 record and last place in the NFC West.

James Conner Injury Update

One guy looking to close out this tough season on a high note is running back James Conner. He has been one of the few consistent producers on this team and it looks like he is trending toward playing in Week 18 as he was seen practice Thursday.

Conner has missed a couple games so far, but he has already surpassed his rushing total from last season with 782 yards heading into Week 18, he's even added another 300 through the air, although that's lower than his 375-yard total from last year.

Conner and the Cardinals will look to close out the season with a win when they take on the San Francisco 49ers, where Arizona is a 14-point road underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
