Mauro is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
Mauro has been battling a bad ankle through the latter part of the season and appeared to tweak the injury in the second half of Sunday's game. Robert Nkemdiche and Olsen Pierre could both see increased defensive snaps if Mauro is unable to return to the season finale.
Mauro sat out Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Redskins but appears on track to play Week 16 against the Giants. The 26-year-old should reclaim his role as starting defensive end, with his return coming at a good time with fellow linemen Corey Peters (ankle), Olsen Pierre (illness) and Robert Nkemdiche (wrist) all hurting.
Mauro (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Mauro was listed as questionable and had played through the injury in recent weeks, but is unable to give it a go Sunday. Thankfully for the Cardinals, defensive tackle Corey Peters (ankle) is active, with Olsen Pierre and Robert Nkemdiche likely to see increased snap counts with Mauro sidelined.
Mauro was a limited participant Thursday and Friday and appears likely to try and play through the injury again this week. The 26-year-old has been on a limited snap count throughout the season, with that trend likely to continue Sunday.
Mauro didn't practice Thursday, but he was able to participate in a limited capacity Wednesday and Friday. The fourth-year pro will likely be limited in his snap count Sunday as he has been most of the season.
