Not any surprises on the Cardinals’ inactive list. Not anymore, not when Bruce Arians made it pretty clear Friday this wasn’t a game where he thought rookie Robert Nkemdiche should be up. So he is not. And the Cardinals also made a roster move Thursday, promoting tight end Hakeem Valles to the active roster with Darren Fells out for the game. To make room for Valles, the Cards cut running back Kerwynn Williams, who was just signed Tuesday.
Injuries, actually, play a big role in the inactive list for tonight:
— QB Carson Palmer (concussion)
— G Cole Toner
— DT Olsen Pierre
— TE Darren Fells (shoulder)
— DT Robert Nkemdiche
— DT Ed Stinson (toe)
— DT Josh Mauro (chest)
Frostee Rucker will make his return after missing the last few games. Not having Mauro hurts; he’s a guy that, if he’s not playing because of injury, you know he has to be pretty banged up.
