We now know which players will be taking the field for the Arizona Cardinals during their 2021 regular-season opener on September 12.

Compared to the rest of the NFL, the difficulty level of trimming their roster down to 53 players was a little higher for Arizona Cardinals this year.

Due to their final exhibition contest getting canceled last week, the Cardinals were only able to utilize two preseason games this summer to help evaluate the guys on their roster.

Arizona’s roster is now at the required regular-season limit of 53 players. However, don’t be surprised if the Cardinals make a few more roster adjustments leading up to their Week 1 showdown against the Tennessee Titans on September 12.
