Arizona Cardinals vs Jacksonville Jaguars: Brown, Golden out
By Scott Allen
The Arizona Cardinals and the Jacksonville Jaguars announced their inactives prior to Sunday afternoon’s game
The Arizona Cardinals, for a team with receiving trouble as of late, have three of their seven receivers inactive on Sunday. That includes John Brown and Brittan Golden.
Brown was ruled out a couple of days ago. Golden had been listed as questionable as of Friday afternoon.
Also inactive is the newest member to the 53-man roster Carlton Agudosi. That will leave Larry Fitzgerald, J.J. Nelson, Jaron Brown, and Chad Williams as the only active receivers on Sunday.
We were told Williams would be getting his shot. The third-round draft pick in 2017 out of Grambling State will only be playing in his third game of his rookie season.
Also inactive for the Cardinals on Sunday is quarterback Matt Barkley. That means that Drew Stanton will once again back up Blaine Gabbert.
Other Cardinals inactives include defensive tackle Corey Peters, offensive lineman Max Tuerk and safety Rudy Ford. Peters will be a huge loss for the Cardinals pass rush chances.

As for the Jacksonville Jaguars, on the offensive side they will be without receiver Allen Hurns, tackle Jeremy Parnell, guards Patrick Onameh and Wil Poehls. The loss of Parnell and Onameh are huge for the Jags running game.
On the defensive side of things, they will be without linebacker Donald Payne, cornerback Jalen Mack, and defensive tackle Eli Ankou. The big news here is who is not listed as inactive. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey will play against the Cardinals.
Ramsey will be important to try and stop the Cardinals passing game. The Cardinals have steered away from the running game for the most part over the last couple of weeks.
As for the Cardinals, having Stanton serve as the backup is important. Barkley has only been with the team for a couple of weeks. This also must mean Stanton is progressing well with his ankle injury.
