So, after all that, rookie Robert Nkemdiche will be active tonight against the Jets.
It was will-he-or-won’t-he all week, with Nkemdiche and Bruce Arians both sounding optimistic the defensive tackle would be active for the game and then Arians on Saturday sounding less so. But now that we are here, Nkemdiche will be dressed out. How much he plays is another story. It’s Nkemdiche’s first game since the opener, when he got 10 snaps against the Patriots. Since then, he not only was healing from his ankle but also battling himself when it came to prep and knowing the plays. He’s passed the test this week.
The full list of inactives:
— CB Brandon Williams
— RB Kerwynn Williams
— DT Olsen Pierre
— DT Xavier Williams
— G Mike Iupati (ankle)
— TE Hakeem Valles
— DT Ed Stinson (toe)
For the Jets, linebacker David Harris is out but cornerback Darrelle Revis is active. ESPN is reporting Revis will cover Larry Fitzgerald. Also, Patrick Peterson lost the bucket challenge this week:
