WR Greg Dortch not expected to play for Cardinals vs. Chargers

The Arizona Cardinals have ruled out wide receiver Rondale Moore for this week because of a groin injury. His replacement in the lineup, as well as the team’s primary kick and punt returner, Greg Dortch, is questionable with a thumb injury.

The Cardinals aren’t counting on Dortch being available.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Dortch is not expected to play.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said it would come down to a game-day decision. They need to see whether he can handle the pain and whether he can catch the ball or not.

In roster moves on Saturday, they signed receiver Andre Baccellia from the practice squad to the active roster and elevated recently signed receiver Pharoh Cooper from the practice squad to the active roster.

Cooper will likely handle return duties and Baccellia will fill the role on offense that Dortch would have had.

The Cardinals do get back receiver Marquise Brown after five games. He was activated from injured reserve and will be in the lineup with DeAndre Hopkins for the first time this season.
