Arizona Cardinals vs Indianapolis Colts: Inactives
By Scott Allen
The Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts have announced their inactives ahead of Sunday’s week two matchup
There is a world of hurt in Arizona Cardinals land as we all know. Now we know specifically who has been ruled inactive for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Receiver John Brown and offensive linemen D.J. Humphries and Mike Iupati lead the list of players not in uniform on Sunday. Of course we all know about running back David Johnson going on injured reserve earlier this week. He’s out eight to 12 weeks.
Other Cardinals inactives include newly signed running back D.J. Foster, quarterback Blaine Gabbert, linebacker Deone Bucannon, and tight end Jermaine Gresham.
Gresham is also not a surprise. He injured his ribs last week in Detroit and by the time Thursday rolled around, we had a good idea he would be out. The Cardinals signed tight end Jim Dray on Friday.
As for Bucannon, he too is not a surprise but he did practice in a limited role this week. Maybe the Cardinals can get him back in a week or two.

As for the Colts, their inactives are quarterback Andrew Luck, cornerback Vontae Davis, safety Darius Butler, receiver Chester Rogers, center Ryan Kelly, and linebackers Antonio Morrison and Anthony Walker.
The Colts aren’t sure when they will get Luck back. Jacoby Brissett will get his first start with the Colts since signing with the team two weeks ago. He came into the game to replace Scott Tolzien last week against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Cardinals could have a good day in the passing game despite the loss of Brown. The Colts top two defensive backs are out. Without David and Butler in the secondary, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer could have an easier day than anticipated.
The eyes of Cardinals fans though will be on that offensive line with no Humphries or Iupati. John Wetzel will start for Humphries and Alex Boone will start for Iupati.
