NFL inactive list, Week 15, Cardinals/Lions: Dan Williams, Early Doucet inactive, defensive line banged up

USA TODAY Sports

A look at who will be not be playing this afternoon in the battle of two 4-9 teams.

The Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions have released their inactive list in preparation for their game at University of Phoenix Stadium. While some Cardinals fans were hoping to perhaps see newly signed quarterback Brian Hoyer. It was an unreasonable thing to expect, especially since he has practiced three days with the team. He will be among the inactives today.

Likewise, the defensive line depth will be tested. Starting defensive tackle Dan Williams, who has an ankle injury, is inactive, as is defensive end Ronald Talley. That means that David Carter will get the start at defensive tackle and recently promoted from the practice squad Ricky Lumpkin will likely be in the playing rotation with Vonnie Holliday and Nick Eason.

In other news, but unrelated to the inactives, Adam Snyder will start at center for Arizona. Both Lyle Sendlein and Rich Ohrnberger are on IR and rookie Scott Wedige played last week. However, it will be Snyder today and Pat McQuistan that will play right guard, with rookie Senio Kelemete remaining inactive.

Here is the full list for both teams:
