Cardinals running back James Conner is likely a game-time decision for Monday's wild-card game against the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Thursday, per Darren Urban of the team's official site.

Conner injured his ribs in the regular-season finale loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

While Kingsbury also described running back Chase Edmonds as a likely game-day call due to toe and rib issues, Edmonds said he plans to play.

Conner was third in the NFL with 18 total touchdowns (15 rushing, three receiving) behind Jonathan Taylor and Austin Ekeler. The veteran led the team with 752 rushing yards, while Edmonds was second with 592.

Arizona is set to travel to Los Angeles for the first-ever Monday wild-card matchup after failing to wrestle the NFC West crown from its division rivals in Week 18.
