Also, the preferred starting left guard, Elijah Wilkinson (knee surgery), made it through a full week of practice and likely will be activated from injured reserve before the game.

Outside linebacker Arnold Ebiketie (wrist) and defensive lineman Jalen Dalton (toe) were not on the injury report. Both players were inactive for the most-recent game, against the Steelers on Dec. 4.
