Arizona Cardinals vs Cincinnati Bengals: Inactives


The Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals announced their inactives for Sunday night

Well for the Arizona Cardinals, they got good news on one receiver for Sunday night’s matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Another receiver will be shelved for this evening.

Receiver John Brown is active for the Cardinals as he continues to work on his injured hamstring.  Unfortunately receiver Michael Floyd was not as lucky and he will sit on Sunday night.

Arizona Cardinals inactives:

WR Michael Floyd

QB Matt Barkley

NT Xavier Williams

CB Robert Nelson Jr.

LB Shaq Riddick

T D.J. Humphries

DT Cory Redding

At least Brown can go on offense.  Now, how effective he will be remains to be seen.  Remember, he hasn’t caught a pass since the Monday night game against the Baltimore Ravens on October 26th.  Floyd will be missed but the offense can overcome the loss.

As for Redding, he left last week’s game early with an injury.  That has carried over to this week, so he is out as well.

Cincinnati Bengals inactives:

WR Mario Alford

CB Adam Jones

LB P.J. Dawson

DL Marcus Hardison

DT Pat Sims

DL Margus Hunt

TE C.J. Uzomah

Jones is a huge loss for the Bengals defense.  He has been a force in the Bengals secondary all season long.  He has just two interceptions this season but has been all over the field very active.

So both sides of the ball are missing big game players but both can overcome their losses on Sunday night.  The Cardinals though have more weapons to replace Floyd than the Bengals do to replace Jones.  Floyd was just starting to pick it up over the past couple of games in the absence of Brown.  Brown will need to reappear with a huge game though on Sunday night.  The Cardinals will need someone to produce big plays down the field.
