The following players are inactive for the Cardinals today:
- RB Beanie Wells (knee)
- DT Darnell Dockett (shoulder)
- WR Max Komar
- CB A.J. Jefferson
- SS Hamza Abdullah
- LB Cyril Obiozor
- C Ben Claxton
- 3rd QB: John Skelton
Matt Hasselbeck can breathe easier – literally – because Dockett will not play. The Cardinals’ defensive tackle was fined last year for using Hasselbeck’s neck to help himself off the turf – and the Seahawks’ QB. Alan Branch will start for Dockett.
With Wells out, Tim Hightower is the starter. He was replaced by Wells after the Week 7 loss to the Seahawks because Hightower was fumbling too much.
